Net Metering

Sell Excess Units to National Grid & Save Up to 100% on Your Electricity Bills

What is Net Metering?

Net metering is an electricity policy that allows you to produce electricity (using solar energy) for your own use and export the excess energy produced to the national grid. This results in setting-off units against the electricity consumed during off-peak hours. In this way, you will either pay a reduced utility bill or get paid for excess energy exported to the grid.

In 2015, NEPRA issued its net metering regulations that allow the DISCOs in Pakistan to purchase excess electricity units produced by consumers and net them off against the units consumed from the grid. As per these regulations, any customer of the national grid (having a three-phase connection) can avail net metering facility starting from 3kW up to 1MW.

Net metering supplies substantial advantages in regard to power generation, earnings, and investment in solar.
