If renewable energy—especially solar—is going to thrive in Cambodia, we need net metering. Without a net metering law or policy, solar will plod along. With it, solar will spread rapidly nationwide.
What is net metering? It’s when customers install their own electricity generation (rooftop solar panels, for example) and a meter reads both electricity consumption and production. Any electricity the house feeds into the grid is credited toward the customer’s consumption. A house can both provide energy to and take energy from the grid.
