ProFIT vs. NetGreen - What's the difference?

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.
