Through a program called net metering, residential, small business and industrial customers can generate their own electricity, up to 1 megawatt, to supplement the supply they get from CenterPoint Energy. Net metering customers are charged only for the "net" power that they consume from CenterPoint Energy that has accumulated over a designated period or, if their renewable energy-generating systems make more electricity than is consumed, they may be credited for the excess electricity contributed to the grid over that same period.
