SCP’s ProFIT and NetGreen are two distinct programs for very different applications.
ProFIT is a wholesale energy buying program designed to create a market for developers to sell all the energy from a project to Sonoma Clean Power at a fixed price. It is not intended to offset electricity usage or reduce an electricity bill.
NetGreen allows customers to power their own homes or businesses from a renewable generating system and offset their electrical usage by essentially spinning their meter backwards. This program is for customers that want to install a generating system on their home and business and reduce their electricity bill. Learn more about SCP’s industry-leading NetGreen program.
