What Is Net Metering and How Does It Work?

Thanks to Grid Tie Solar with Net Metering, your solar can now lower your bill – or even eliminate it.


Net Metering is a utility rate program offered by your electric company (Meralco) that requires the electric company to purchase the surplus or excess solar energy that your solar panels produce.


How does it work?

Upon installing a grid tie solar power system, you can apply for Net Metering with your electric company. With net metering, you can export the excess power generated by your solar, if the house or facility does not consume it. This means when your solar energy system produces more electricity than your home consumes, then the excess electricity is sent to the grid and your utility credits you for it. Net metering is what makes rooftop solar such a great way to reap the benefits of going solar. 


How net metering gives you savings

In simple terms, net metering gives you credits for returning electricity to the grid. In doing this, with these credits, you can now offset electricity that you will use from the utility during night time. This mechanism offers the full economic value of rooftop solar. With a solar system that is sized properly, you can reduce your monthly electric bills by 50%. However, if your target is a Zero Bill, then you just need to size your system in accordance to your monthly power consumption and baseline loads. The right system that fits your goals can potentially eliminate all your monthly electricity expenses!


Daytime power

Solar harvests the most power during the middle of the day when the sun is shining the brightest. However, for most households, the problem is that the middle of the day also happens to be when they use the least amount of electricity. Therefore, during that time, your panels are producing way more electricity than your home needs. With net metering, whenever the solar produces more power than the house needs, it is exported to the grid, and you will see the credits in the next electric bill you receive. 


Night time consumption

At night, when your solar is not producing because it shuts down when the sun sets, you take electricity from the grid. The best way to OFFSET this night time consumption is to accumulate enough credits from the exported surplus power during daytime. This, in essence, is how to reduce your electric bill by 30%, or 50%, or 100%.
