Legal framework revisions for virtual net metering plan on final stretch

RAE’s approval of the legal revisions made is needed before the Environment and Energy Ministry proceeds with signing its ministerial decision.

The framework revisions made include an expansion of the net metering period from one to three years as well as permitting the installation of tracker systems for virtual net metering.

Virtual net metering links fragmented and scattered operations to just one electricity power meter to offset the cost of electricity supplied by the power utility with electricity produced through PV self-production for the grid.

Vocational groups such as farmers whose operations are spread over scattered plots of land stand to benefit from virtual net metering.
