You use exactly the same amount of electricity that you produce. You would owe only the customer charge. You produce more electricity than you use. You make the SNAP+ overproduction rate on any extra kWh that you produce. This is used to pay the Customer Charge and if there is a surplus, it is placed on your account as a credit.
