Net Energy Metering (NEM) 1.0 / 2.0

If you installed solar prior to 2016 you are likely on the NEM 1.0 program. If you applied between June 29, 2016 and April 14, 2023, you are on NEM 2.0 You can confirm with PG&E Solar Customer Service at 877-743-4112, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Customers on NEM rates will remain on NEM for 20 years after their installation.

Solar Billing Plan (SBP)

If you applied for solar anytime after April 14, 2023, you are (or will be) enrolled in the SBP.

Contract periods for the NEM program are 20 years. If you installed solar in 2004 or earlier, you will soon reach the end of your contract and will be notified by PG&E about a transition to the SBP.


Any SVCE customer who meets PG&E’s solar participation requirements is eligible for an SVCE solar program. The timing of when your solar was installed will dictate the version of the solar program that you enroll in. Generally, this includes customers with renewable electric generation systems (such as solar, wind, biogas and fuel cell installations) that are less than 1,000 kW. A typical residential installation is 4-5 kW, and the typical commercial installation is 100-200 kW.

Silicon Valley Clean Energy’s solar programs are only available to customers within the SVCE service area.
