The second net metering energization was held at Magdalene Hotel, and Step Marketing in Cadiz City, owned by Stephen Ogbac, a press release said.
The first net metering was conducted May 25, 2017 at Centro San Pablo building in Victorias City, and owned by Nemesio Dela Cruz with a capacity of 20 kilowatts.
Before the energization, the technical personnel of Northern Negros Electric Cooperative conducted an onsite inspection for the net metering set up for pedestal, and configured the settings of import export scheme for the 40KW capacity metering at Magdalene Hotel in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental, in accordance with the guidelines of the Energy Regulatory Commission.
Under the net metering mechanism, the consumer's electric meter keeps track of how much electricity is consumed by the consumer and how much excess electricity is generated by the system and sent back into the electric utility grid, the press release said.
The net metering is a rooftop solar installation which is the most common type of metering system, and dependent on the capacity of the solar panel installed above the building.
At any time of the day, the consumer's solar panel may produce more or less electricity than they need for their home or business. At other times of the day, the consumer's electric demand may be higher than what the renewable energy system is producing, and the consumer relies on additional power needs from Noneco, the press release said.
The eligibility for the net metering system is through coordination with the electric cooperative, the press release added.*
