Net metering in Mexico
Having a battery bank in your home to store the energy your panels produce during the day is a thing of the past, now you can feed the utility grid in Mexico during the day while your solar panels are generating and utilize the grid's energy during the night at no cost to you.
Since July 2007, much like in the USA and Europe, it is possible for consumers across Mexico to generate their own electricity thru renewable energy technologies, feed the surplus to CFE’s national grid system and receive a credit on your energy bill for doing so; this is referred to in other countries as net energy metering.

The rules that govern the exchange of energy between the generator (consumer) and the supplier (CFE) are specified and referred to as; interconnection agreement.
Under this system, the revenue of each period is determined as the difference between the electrical energy delivered by the supplier and delivered to the grid by the generator, this exchange kilowatt-hour (kWh) is computed by a digital meter with the ability of measuring the power input and output from your solar system (bidirectional meter).
When this exchange difference is negative, it is considered as a credit to the generator that can be offset within a period of 12 months. If that credit is not used during that 12 month period, the energy will go to the national grid and the repayment from the utility company will be waived. When the difference is positive, it is considered as a credit in favor of the supplier (CFE) and will be billed at the applicable rate.
