Net-Metering is a program approved by the Energy Regulatory Commission to allow customers to install solar panels within their premises. It is designed to help you lower your electricity bills by allowing you to export unused or excess electricity generated from your solar panels back to Meralco. The maximum allowed generating capacity under the Net-Metering Rules is 100 kW, subject to technical considerations. Any solar installation beyond 100 kW is currently not eligible for the Net-Metering service.

Net-metering and zero export: The brighter, safer way to use renewable energy. As the world leans towards cleaner and more sustainable energy, Meralco takes the initiative in supporting the use of wind, water, biomass, and other renewable sources of energy. Currently, the most readily available and widely used is solar energy. Including Meralco in solar energy plans ensures that your installation is compatible with the power grid, that it WILL NOT endanger neither you or your customers, and that it can be properly monitored to make sure that you get the maximum value and savings from their investment. This follows the Meralco 3S’s of Solar Energy: Safety, Sustainability, and Savings.
