What is Heartland’s net metering policy on wind and solar installations?

Heartland has a handful of members with wind and solar resources connected to our system, all benefiting from our net metering policy. Because their electric meters run forward and backward, it's currently possible for members to "bank" excess power generated and offset power consumption later in the monthly billing cycle.

Heartland's net metering policy has a monthly sweep, so any "banked" power is lost at the end of the billing cycle. Therefore, when deciding how big a wind or solar system to install, it's important to compare the system's expected power generation to your home's monthly power use
