A lot of people who just started reading up on solar thinks that once their panels are up and your system is energized, that’s already the finish line. What if we tell you that you can do much more about that energy you are harvesting?

 

Net Metering

Net Metering

In a solar-powered home, the first priority of your solar system is to power up your appliances during the daytime, therefore decreasing the power that you get from your utility company which equals lower bill costs. During instances when your grid tie system generates more power than what you have consumed, the “Net Metering” program allows you to export or sell the excess energy to the utility company in exchange for credits. The accumulated credits can then be used to offset the power you consume during the night time. This results in further reductions in your electric bill.

 

Doesn’t my solar cover my entire consumption?

Your solar system does not work during nighttime and in some cases wherein solar energy is not available or your system produces less than your consumption, your utility grid will automatically supply your power for your home. This is done automatically without flipping any switches because your solar is seamlessly integrated into your main panel box. Solar power can only solely offset daytime usage which is why applying net metering can cause a further big impact on your savings. In other words, solar can only cover your daytime consumption. You still have to pay for your night time consumption. BUT, if you have net metering, then you can export your excess power during the day, earn credits for it, and these credits will reflect in your monthly electric bill. Literally. The back part of your bill will now have a section on net metering, and it will show you how much excess power you exported and the equivalent amount for it. Then this amount is deducted from your total bill.

 

Maximizing your system

Zero electricity bill

Net metering allows your system to work and optimize its full potential. In fact, net metering makes the zero bill possible since any excess energy will automatically be turned into credits. So if you are more of a night time consumer, a person who loves to turn on the air-conditioning unit all the time, or someone who wants to take advantage of their system on their empty homes while they are at work during the daytime, then it is best to apply for net metering. Worry not for the Solaric team is here to help you with that!
