Net Metering is the process in which solar panels or
other renewable energy generators are connected to a public-utility power
grid and surplus power is transferred onto the grid, allowing customers
to offset the cost of power drawn from the utility. Net Metering is available with the
City of Monett. Call (417) 235-3763
for more information.
When you install solar panels to offset part or all of
your electricity from the City of Monett, it is important to go through
the correct process so everyone stays safe. Before you begin construction, the
Net Metering Application must be submitted and you will need to get a
building permit from the Building and Zoning Department. Both will need to be approved
before construction can start.
The City will inspect and test the installation before it will be
allowed to be tied into the system.
Net metering is the process that measures the amount
of electricity you used from the City of Monett and the amount of excess
energy the City of Monett received from you during the same billing
Remember, you will use the energy your solar panels
generate inside your home or business up to the point that your solar
panels are generating more power than you need at any time. At that point, the excess energy
is put back on the electric grid and you get credit for it.
