How to read your solar bill Congratulations! You’ve joined a Community Solar Array and are collecting solar credits to offset your electric bill. But maybe your new Green Mountain Power bill is hard to figure out. We’re here to help, let’s have a look.
Group Rate 01 This shows the homeowner used 397 KWH of electrity and their share of the solar array produced 542 KWH, so they are owed a credit. 542 KWH - 397 KWH = 145 KWH. This is the Total KWH Excess Credit. Because the array produced more than the homeowner used, they received a $21.37 credit.
Group Solar Incentive This is where your Solar Incentive KWH is calculated. You’ve already received your credit from the array, now you get an additional credit of $0.06 per KWH available only to solar customers. Your Solar Incentive KWH is calculated using the Total KWH Generated by your portion of the array. 542 KWH X $0.06 = $32.52 credit
Are these terms new to you? Here’s a glossary! KWH: A kilowatt hour is a measure of energy. Total KWH Consumed: Electricity you used at your home. Total KWH Generation: Electricity your share of the array generated. Group Excess Shared: Total energy produced by the entire array. Customer Charge: Standard charge to all GMP customers. Not specific to solar customers. Total KWH Excess Credit/Billed: The difference between what your share of the array produced and what you used at home. Credit means you used less energy than your share of the array produced. Billed means you used more energy than your share of the array produced. Solar Incentive KWH: This is an ADDITIONAL credit just for creating solar power!
