How does the billing work?
First, after successfully completing the enrollment process, you will receive the net metering credits on your monthly ComEd electric utility bill for your share of the generation created by your community solar project under the utility’s default electricity supply tariff service. The invoice examples below show you how this works.
Then, after you have received you net metering credits from ComEd, MC Squared Energy Services, LLC will bill you for 80 % of the net metering credits – leaving you with 20 % of all net metering credits.Your monthly bill from MC Squared Energy Services, LLC will also report how your participation impacts the environment each month.
What do you mean that solar subscriptions will be first come-first serve?
