Net metering allows Ameren’s electric customers who generate some or all of their own energy to offset energy provided by Ameren.
We provide the electrical grid system and metering to allow you to send your excess generated energy to the grid.
If you install a solar energy system for your home or business, you will first use the power your system generates. If more energy is needed, the meter pulls it from the Ameren grid.
If you generate more solar energy than you need at the time, the energy goes to the Ameren grid for others to use. You are compensated for the power you add to the Ameren grid - learn more about net metering with Ameren Illinois
