Net Metering

For Members with Solar Panels

SLEMCO wants to make sure members with solar panels are being billed fairly. That’s what Net-Metering is all about. This process makes sure you’re getting the credit due for the energy you save using solar panels. Contact the SLEMCO Engineering department at 337-896-5384 for more details.

Current Louisiana Public Service Commission net metering rules cap the number of customers using solar power that electric utilities must accept at 0.5 percent. SLEMCO has now reached 75 percent of that 0.5 percent cap. Once 100 percent of that cap has been reached, LPSC net-metering rules allow electric providers to stop accepting applications.
