Net metering provides a smart cost-saving strategy for home and cottage owners to hedge against rising hydro rates whilst increasing their energy independence by generating their own clean power for self-consumption. If you plan to generate power primarily for your own use then the net metering program is for you.
How it Works
Electricity generated from solar is primarily used to power the load demands of your home or cottage.
If there is a surplus of solar that is not consumed, it is sent directly to the grid and a credit is awarded. This credit can then be used to purchase power when there isn’t sufficient solar power generation to meet your load demand/consumption. Excess generation credits can be carried forward for up to 12 months to offset future electricity costs.
A Net Zero home is a home with zero net energy consumption. The total amount of energy used by the home in a year is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy generated on the site. Net Zero energy systems can easily be applied to new builds as well as existing homes and cottage.
How to apply
To review your eligibility for the net metering program, book a complimentary consultation by reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org. A qualified electrical contractor will be in touch shortly to set up a time to review the system sizing, costs, documentation and process, and will advise you on the most cost-effective integration of solar at your home or cottage
