Solar Net Energy Metering Event
The Redwood Coast Energy Authority (RCEA) is hosting a solar Net Energy Metering event this Wednesday, June 13, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Wharfinger. The public is invited to learn about net energy metering (NEM), the main differences between RCEA and PG&E’s NEM billing, and how to read RCEA’s solar NEM bills.
The workshop will include a presentation by Mahayla Slackerelli, Account Services Manager. Customers are encouraged to bring their own bills and there will be plenty of time for Q&A. RCEA Executive Director Matthew Marshall will kick off the event while RCEA Project Manager Patricia Terry will offer a recap of her own solar installation process. Ben Mattio, RCEA Program Manager, will explain the significance of addressing a home or business’ energy efficiency before calculating the number of solar panels required for a project.
Several local solar installers will be displaying information and answering questions, and there will be time for folks who don’t have solar arrays to mingle with those who are already seeing their meters go backwards. A “Big Check” will be presented to the customer who received the most money back this spring. Cake and other refreshments will be served to commemorate Community Choice Energy’s 1st year anniversary.
There is no charge to attend. The Wharfinger is located at 1 Marina Way, in Eureka. For more information visit www.RedwoodEnergy.org or call (707) 269-1700.
