How can Net Metering help reduce MY NB Power bill?

Good question. Net metering can reduce your NB Power bill if the output of your generation unit is used to offset your electricity consumption from NB Power. Your bill will reflect the difference between the total amount of your electricity consumption and the electricity your generation unit produces over the billing period. This is the “net amount” of electricity.

Your monthly service charge, rental charges (if applicable) and HST applied to the total amount of electricity delivered each month.
