So here is where it is a little fuzzy. I will be on the the wholesale P-rate tariff is typically around $0.03/kWh vs the total delivered retail rate of about $0.25/kWh. So it sounds like it's based on monthly net, but have not confirmed nor heard from someone in the same situation. I hope it's based on the monthly net consumption/production and not the instantaneous or hourly usage.
My guess is that it would be based on the monthly net usage, as our meters are "dumb" and we don't have TOU... of course, it is possible that our meters support TOU and we just don't have it... so I guess it could be as you concern.

@TORQU3 So are you sure that you aren't eligible for net metering? Mass.gov seems to make it less cut and dry than > 10 kW is not eligible

It seems that systems < 10 kw are always allowed but more than is subject to whether or not your utility has reached a cap

I called the MA ACA and I can apply for net metering but there is a waiting list and the net metering cap for my area is currently fully allocated. Also when you apply for a net metering cap when over 10kW AC, you only get a credit for about 60% of the full retail rate for monthly overproduction vs nearly 100% of the retail rate when cap exempt.

I'll have to give that group a call... out of curiosity, what area of MA do you live in?

Just want to be sure it's not just me. Are you missing the grid services icon from the new app version?
Version 4.x of the App removes the Grid services icon from the energy tabs. Additionally it moves the status of when you are on Grid Services to the front screen, it would be where Storm Watch is in this screenshot.
