Delaware’s net metering program credits home and business owners for the excess power they generate using solar, wind or hydro systems at the retail power rate. Those who generate their own power can roll credits over from one year to the next or request a pay-put at the end of the year if they are owed more than $25. However, the payouts for excess credits are paid at the wholesale rate.
Those participating in a community solar garden with multiple subscribers are only credited at the retail rate for excess power they generate if the garden facility is on the same distribution feeder as their home or business. If a subscriber gets his or her power from a different distribution feeder, he or she is credit at the wholesale electric rate instead.
