Net Metering

Net metering is a way for you to connect your small wind turbine behind the meter at your home, business or farm.  This system is designed to allow energy generated at your home farm or business to offset some or all of the electricity you use.  If your generator is producing more electricity than you can consume the excess is sold back to the utility.  The price that a project receives for the excess electricity varies from state to state and from utility to utility.

Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS)/Renewable Electricity Standard (RES)

A minimum renewable energy requirement for a region's electricity mix. Under an RES, electricity suppliers are required to provide some percentage of its supply from renewable energy sources. RPS proposals frequently ease that requirement by including a tradable credit system under which electricity suppliers can meet the requirement by buying and selling renewable energy credits (RECs).
