How does this affect my bill?

Any energy returned to the grid is credited at the wholesale energy rate. Distributed Generation (DG) customers also purchase any energy they receive from the grid at the wholesale rate, while customers without DG pay the retail rate. To help the utility cover fixed costs, DG customers will be charged a monthly service availability fee.
