Customers Solar Net Metering Discrepancies
FMPA Manager of Member Services Development Jose Bravo recently worked with two member utilities to assist with customer inquiries about their solar net metering readings, particularly discrepancies between the utility meter readings and the estimated readings from at-home solar companies. He installed a power quality recorder at the customer’s meter to record energy consumption. Ultimately the results determined that the utility meter was reading correctly, and the issue was level of accuracy on the customers solar metering. If you’d like to learn more or get similar assistance, contact Member Services for assistance.
