Net metering (NEM) is a billing mechanism that allows homeowners and businesses that generate their own electricity with their solar energy system to deliver power they do not use back into the grid and receive a credit.

The extension of the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) passed by Congress on December 19, 2015 will lead to sustained growth in the U.S. solar industry. By 2020, the industry will deploy more than 20 GW of solar electricity annually and employ more than 420,000 workers.
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is the solar industry’s most important public policy. As such, SEIA commissioned an independent analysis from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) to analyze the impact of the ITC on the industry – and what the U.S. stands to lose if Congress lets this policy expire in 2016.
The Solar Energy Industries Association is working hard to represent the industry from our Washington, DC headquarters. We have experts and professional advocates working to influence federal policy, however, when it comes to making a more personal impact with legislators, the power of grassroots advocacy cannot be underestimated. Congress needs to be reminded that the solar industry provides jobs and energy security in their states and districts.
