Net Excess Generation Credit Options

As of October 1, 2023, net meter customers in Maryland will have two options for how to receive credit for net excess generation.

Customers can choose from the following options:

  1. Twelve-Month Period: The customer’s net excess generation will be paid out sometime in April, dependent on the customer’s billing cycle, each year, or
  2. Indefinite Method: The customer’s net excess generation will be carried forward indefinitely.  This means the customer will not receive payout for net excess generation until either the customer changes their credit method to the “Twelve-Month Period”, or the customer closes their account.

All existing customers receiving service under the Net Meter Rider will automatically be placed on the Twelve-Month Period method, unless a change is requested. 


How to Change Credit Method

Please contact our Customer Care Center to change the payment method for net excess generation or if you have any questions

Note: Customers may not switch credit methods more than once in a calendar year.  If customers choose to switch to the Indefinite Method, requests may be submitted no later than December 31 of the current year to prevent the payout in April of the following year.  If the request is received after December 31, the change will be applied to the following program year.
