With MECO’s “Customer Grid Supply Plus” (CGS+) program, the solar PV system sends all excess energy back to the grid, after powering the loads in your house and charging your battery, if you have one.
You receive credits for the energy you send back to the grid at a rate of 12.17 cents per kwh. The export credit is fixed through Oct. 20, 2022. After that date, this credit rate is subject to change, which is why a battery will maximize your savings. Credits are banked on a monthly basis and excess credits are rolled over to the next month. Any credits left at the end of your anniversary date are lost.
During the day, much of the Sun’s energy goes to power the loads in your house, bypassing the meter. Only the excess is what you receive credits for.

If CGS+ is not available on your circuit, not to worry, MECO’s Customer Self Supply is still open, but you will require a Tesla Powerwall battery to maximize your savings.
