A Policy That Unlocks Community Renewable Energy | Grist

Net metering is a common distributed renewable energy policy in the United States, allowing individuals to "turn back" their meter (and reduce their electric bill) by generating on-site electricity.  But utility accounting systems typically prevent people from sharing the output from a single, common "community" solar or wind project.

Virtual (or group or neighborhood) net metering  is the solution.
