What Is Net Energy Metering (NEM)?

A mechanism where an eligible consumer installs a solar PV system primarily for his own use and the excess energy to be exported to the grid for which credit to be received that may be used to offset part of the electricity bill for energy provided by the Distribution Licensee (TNB/SESB) to electricity consumer during the applicable billing period.

  • For example, if a residential consumer has a PV system on the rooftop, it may generate more electricity than the home uses. The extra electricity produced will provide a credit against electricity that is consumed.
