Go Solar in South Bend Please note that as of July 1, 2022, net metering (a full retail rate credit for the electricity your system produces and sends to your neighbors) is no longer available to new solar owners. You can learn more about net metering in Indiana from Solar United Neighbors here and about the credit that replaced net metering, called “excess distributed generation (EDG),” here. There is currently a court case before the Indiana Supreme Court to determine how EDG credits are measured (“instantaneous netting” versus “monthly netting”), and the Court will hopefully make a decision on the case by the first half of 2023.
