ComEd Removes 110% Cap from Net Metering Requirements

< Back to Consumer Updates

Previously, customers participating in ComEd’s customer net metering program were only able to install a distributed generation system or enroll in a community solar subscription up to 110% of that customer’s most recent 12 months of energy usage. If a customer had less than 12 months of historical usage, the system or subscription size was capped at 110% of the average electrical usage for that customer’s specific Delivery Service Class.

ComEd has removed this 110% limitation on February 16, 2022 for Community Solar and March 1, 2022 for distributed generation and the cap is no longer reflected on the ComEd net metering website. This means that distributed generation projects and Community Solar subscriptions in ComEd territory can now be sized above 110% of a customer’s previous 12 months of electrical usage.

As a reminder, participation in net metering is optional (not required for ABP eligibility) for customers with an onsite distributed generation photovoltaic system, though it is required for customers who subscribe to a Community Solar project to offset their utility electric bill.
