Do you generate solar energy or are considering it?

Solar customers will be automatically enrolled into Pomona Choice Energy’s net metering program beginning October 2021. The net metering program will offer the same benefits you receive now from Southern California Edison, plus the added benefit of a higher Net Surplus Compensation Rate should you system generate more power than you use throughout your relevant period.

If you already enjoy the benefits of net energy metering with SCE, or are considering a solar system, you do not have to do anything. As a Pomona Choice Energy customer, your account will automatically be enrolled in Pomona Choice Energy’s Pomona Solar Choice, which offers a lower generation rate schedule for power you are using, and a Net Surplus Compensation rate of $0.06 per kWh, which beats SCE’s current Net Surplus Compensation rate, for excess energy your system may generate as measured at the end of the relevant period.

With Pomona Solar Choice, customers generation charges and credits are escrowed through their 12-month relevant period, which provides customers a full year to net out high summer usage against the system generated credits they have accumulated. With Pomona Solar Choice program, you will receive an energy credit for the power your system provides to the grid. At the close of each month, we will tally the amount of grid energy you have consumed and contributed. If you have contributed more energy than you have used, a credit will accrue for that month’s energy charges. If you have used more energy than you have contributed, a charge for that month’s energy charges will accrue. At the end of your 12-month relevant period, on your meter read date, if there is an amount owing in the escrow account, the amount due will be charged on your bill.  The kilowatt generated vs. consumed will also be evaluated.

If you were a Net Surplus Generator or produced more energy than you used, you will be compensated at the Net Surplus Compensation rate of $0.06 per kWh. It is as simple as that!
