Net Energy Metering (NEM) is the process at which HECO, MECO and HELCO gives credits to homeowners for every kilo-watt-hour (kWh) delivered back into the grid. One can tell when they are giving back to the grid when:
1.) The meter is spinning backwards
2.) The digital NEM meter is showing power delivered back to the grid

It is also important to note that your Net Metering readout may not be the same as your inverter output reading. This is due to a discrepancy between what your business uses for power versus what is actually exported back to the Utility.
