Net-Metering Photovoltaic Systems
A Net-Metering scheme is used by electricity consumers to save on their utility bills. The installed solar panels produce energy that is converted into electricity.
This electricity is then used to power the house, shop or other building. If there is any surplus, it is transferred to the EAC grid and the difference of what was consumed and what was transferred is calculated, and the relevant amount is credited to the consumer’s next bill. If the electricity consumed is more than what was produced, the appropriate amount is billed to the consumer’s electricity bill.
