Net Metering

Residential Application Information

What would you like to do?

Welcome! Please take a moment to learn about how the net metering application process works. If you're ready, start an application now.

Install new

Start your Net Metering application now. Save your information as you go. You can simply sign out and sign back in any time to continue or review your status.

Get your system size pre-approved prior to the installation. For solar systems, you will need your solar panel and inverter details.

Install your renewable generation system and have it inspected by the local authority with jurisdiction in your area.

Sign the Interconnection Agreement for Customer-Owned Renewable Generation, upload the relevant documents and submit your application.

If your system size is larger than 10 kW AC, you will need to mail in the application fee. Send payment by check to FPL along with the invoice provided.

FPL will review and approve your application. You will receive email notifications to keep you informed of the status.

A bi-directional meter will be installed to measure how much electricity flows into your location and how much is sold to the FPL grid. You may begin operating your system and enjoying the benefits.

Activate Existing

Start your Net Metering application now to benefit from your renewable generation system. Review your current system's information and make updates as needed.

Sign the Interconnection Agreement for Customer-Owned Renewable Generation, upload the relevant documents (if required) and submit your application.

FPL will review and approve your application. You will receive email notifications to inform you of the status.

You may begin operating your system and enjoying the benefits. You will receive a final email notification to inform you of this.

Before starting a new application, please make sure you have selected a default account in your online profile.
You can set an account to be your default account by visiting our Manage Accounts page and using the dropdown option.

Net Metering FAQs

FPL’s Net Metering program allows customers to interconnect approved renewable generation systems to the grid and provide electricity to their residence or facility, rather than purchasing that energy from their electric utility. Under FPL’s Net Metering interconnection agreement, when a customer’s system produces excess energy that amount is deducted from the customer’s monthly usage before they are billed. If you produce more energy than you receive, the excess amounts are applied to your next month’s electric bill. At the end of each calendar year, any remaining kWh in your reserve will be credited to your account at the annual average cost of generation (COG-1).

Once an approved system is installed, and a Net Metering Application, a Net Metering Agreement and an approved building permit are received and accepted by FPL, a special billing meter that measures the quantity and direction in which the electricity is flowing, is installed. Note: Tier 2 (10 to 100 kW) and Tier 3 (100 kW to 2 Mw) systems also require proof of liability insurance and an application fee.

The energy your system makes is first used by your home or business. When your renewable generation system is making more electricity than you are using at the time, the excess electricity is recorded by the meter as it flows back into the FPL grid. The excess electricity recorded is shown on your bill as “kWh sent to the grid this period”.

If energy was purchased from FPL, any excess electricity recorded will be applied to reduce your monthly bill. Excess energy made in the current year will be applied to your reserve for use in a future month. If you have excess energy in December, a cash credit will be applied to your January bill.

There are a number of renewable generation systems available and costs vary. FPL recommends you do research and shop around to find the system that's right for you.

FPL does not offer rebates for renewable generation systems. For state and federal renewable energy programs that may be available to you, visit dsireusa.org.

As a net metering customer, you will receive a bill that is similar to your existing electric bill. The excess electricity sent to the grid and the kWh reserve information are located in the messages at the bottom of the bill statement.

Your electric bill does not show all of the energy your system produced in the past month. The energy you produce that is consumed by your home is not measured by the FPL bi-directional meter. Only your renewable generation equipment can display the amount of electricity your system produced.
