El Paso, TX to allow for net metering

After dozens of complaints from El Paso residents who have solar panels on their homes, El Paso Electric and the city will work together to create a net metering plan.

A local television station reported last week on one woman who found out that she owed the electric utility more than $2,000 in bills for four months despite selling the utility electricity she generates with her solar panels.

That resident is among quite a few who were outraged to find that even though they were being paid $0.03 per kilowatt for the electricity they generated, they were among the general consumers being charged $0.10 per kilowatt for using the electricity.

The net metering plan will allow those who generate power to receive retail credit for a portion of the electricity they generate.
