How it Works - Net Metering

Working principle of Net-Metering is simple and is based on the idea that you have a solar system installed on your premise which is connected to the utility electricity grid.

When the PV system (up to 5KW) is installed on the roof of your building, the electrity metering is also replaced by a new one which the ability run backwards when your system generates more power than you immediately need or else when you send electricity to the grid The energy that your system produces is firstly send to your house/building as to be used immediately. If now the energy the system produced is more than it is needed for the building operations then the this surplus is send to the utilit gridto be saved. In the case now that the energy produced is not enough to cover the needs he house/building, then energy is taken from the grid and the consumer is charged accordingly except if he has saved KWh produced by his PV system the previous months. The saved eneis available for consumption until the end of April of each following year. If this energy is not consumed then is deleted


The saved energy in the grid is available for consumption until the end of April of each following year. If this energy is not consumed then it is deleted.

 

1) Solar Panels: The panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity throughout the day.


2) Inverter: This device converts the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into the alternating current (AC) electricity. It can be installed on an exterior wall or in your garage.


3) Electrical Panel: The AC electricity is sent from the inverter to your electrical panel and then into your home to power your lights and appliances. The electrical panel is often called a "breaker box."


4) Utility Meter: The utility meter measures your energy use. It actually goes backward when your system generates more power than you immediately need. This excess energy offsets the energy you use at night.


5) Utility Grid: Your home is still connected to the grid. You’ll need  that power from the utility company at night, but don’t worry. The cost is offset by any excess clean energy you put into the grid during the day.


6) Power Monitoring System: Power monitoring continuously tracks your energy production and ensures that your system is running smoothly. It will even alert our repair crews in the rare event that problems arise.
