> and the power company includes how much solar you consume in the equation

This is very striking to me. Does the power company get actual readings on your solar energy consumption, or is the tiering based on estimated solar usage?




I think they are metering the solar as well...

iirc Austin is one of the few places in the US that has a full feed-in tariff, that is they buy back all your solar through a dedicated meter at feed-in prices (usually closer to wholesale vs. the retail prices you purchase at) and apply that as a credit.
