Virtual Net Metering (VNM)

Virtual Net Metering (VNM) allows energy produced by a renewable generating facility to be credited to individual tenants and/or common area utility accounts.

NEM-V vs MASH VNM

We offer two VNM options: Schedule NEM-V-ST (Virtual Net Energy Metering for Multi-Tenant and Multi-Meter Properties), and Schedule MASH-VNM-ST (Multifamily Affordable Solar Housing Virtual Net Metering). Schedule NEM-V-ST is available to an owner or operator of a multi-tenant, multi-meter property where the owner or operator elects to allocate a percentage of the total metered output of a renewable generating facility to service accounts, which are referred to as “Benefitting Accounts.” Schedule MASH-VNM-ST is available to owners or operators of multifamily affordable housing properties where tenants are individually metered by us. Solar energy produced by the solar generating facility is credited to common area and/or tenant service accounts, as designated by the owner or operator, that are located at the same income-qualified residential complex as the solar generating facility.
