IREC is partnering with the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) and the California Solar Energy Industries Association on the Virtual Net Metering Market Development Project, which is one of fifteen Solar Market Pathways projects funded by the Department of Energy SunShot Initiative.

The three-year project, led by CSE, aims to expand the awareness, effectiveness and use of virtual net energy metering (VNEM), which is a policy and billing arrangement that allows energy generation credits from a single solar system to be shared virtually among multiple tenant accounts.

The project is focused primarily on identifying challenges and opportunities associated with the currently underutilized VNEM tariff in California, and the subsequent phases of the project will focus on markets outside of California.

Through extensive stakeholder engagement, pilot territory case studies, marketing and outreach campaigns, the project will increase awareness and understanding of the virtual net metering tariff and increase its adoption on multi-metered, multi-tenant properties in California and beyond.
