Summary: 

All 3 California IOU's are now officially accepting Energy Storage Net Metering (aka NEM Paired Storage) applications. This effectively permits eligible solar + storage systems to export storage to the grid and receive a full NEM credit, assuming the battery charges entirely from solar. In this webinar, we unpacked the mechanics of how exactly NEM Paired Storage works, and illustrated the added value it can add for both Residential & Commercial solar + storage projects.
