Will Rhythm purchase my excess solar electricity?


Rhythm’s distributed renewable generation buyback program incentivizes customers with solar panels.

Solar panels provide a way for customers to produce their own energy and sell their excess electricity back to the grid through net metering. This is commonly referred to as a solar buyback.

For Rhythm’s Solar Buyback Plans, Rhythm will purchase the excess electricity at the customer's contracted energy charge. Rhythm will look at how much electricity the customer consumed (electricity for which the customer pays Rhythm), and provide credit for surplus generation (electricity for which Rhythm credits the customer) up to the monthly consumption in that billing period. Solar Buyback credits have no cash value and can only be redeemed for Rhythm bill credits in that billing cycle. Solar Buyback Credits can only be used for Energy Charges for the meter that they were received on.
