Virtual Net Metering Toolkits

Virtual net metering is a tariff that provides solar access to tenants and multitenant property owners throughout California. These Virtual Net Metering Toolkits provide guidance for property owners/operators on how to efficiently and effectively navigate the process of going solar for multifamily dwellings.

Please Note: These toolkits are specifically focused on solar for market-rate multifamily buildings. Virtual net metering is available to any multitenant, multimetered building within the IOU service territories, including the multitenant, multimetered affordable housing sector. Visit GoSolar California to learn more about solar for the affordable housing sector.

 

Multifamily Toolkits

The Multifamily Toolkits provide guidance to apartment building property owners/operators, as well as condo owners and condo HOA communities and board members. You will find a step-by-step guide on how to prepare for going solar. Use the supporting interactive worksheets to track your site's energy-related information.
