A New California Solar Program is Here
The Solar Billing Plan (SBP) is a new program for customers who apply for interconnection of an eligible renewable generating system, such as solar or wind, after April 14, 2023. The Solar Billing Plan succeeds the Net Energy Metering (NEM) 2.0 program.
For customers considering solar and other renewable generation1 at their homes, the Solar Billing Plan is designed to help modernize solar rates to promote grid reliability, incentivize solar and battery storage, and help control electricity costs for all Californians. Each month, billing will include charges for energy used from the electric grid, as well as energy credits exported to the grid.
1 Renewable generation includes solar, wind, renewable gas, and other technologies that satisfy the CEC Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) qualifications.
NEM and SBP applications are being reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis to ensure document requirements are met. If you are looking for SCE 2023 Solar Application Processing Data and the solar applications currently under review visit Net Energy Metering Updates.
