Enhanced Net Metering
Meet your own electricity needs—and possibly get paid for it!
Enhanced net metering allows you to connect a small renewable electricity project (e.g., wind turbine, solar panel, etc.) to the distribution grid through a meter that measures electricity flows in two directions.
You get credit for any electricity you feed into the grid and are paid for it at the retail class rate.
Under this program you can supply electricity to multiple meters under one account within a single distribution zone, up to an overall limit of 1 megawatt.
- All Nova Scotia Power customers
