Does SDG&E do net metering?

With Net Energy Metering, if you generate more than you use, SDG&E will give you credit and then put the energy on the grid for everyone else to use. Then when it’s nighttime or a cloudy day and your system can’t produce all the energy you need, we’ll apply those credits to the energy you purchase from us.
