DON’T JUST GIVE YOUR POWER AWAY – MAKE SURE YOUR NET METERING SYSTEM IS SIZED CORRECTLY
Some buildings or houses have enough usable roof space to install a renewable solar system large enough to wind off all the property’s electricity usage for the year. However, your Net Metering System must be sized correctly to balance your solar energy generation and your electricity consumption.
For example, An average house uses between 9000 and 10,000 kWh per year. A 10kW, 40-panel system produces an average of 12,000kWh per year, creating a surplus 2000kWh balance on your hydro bill. You can carry this excess balance on your hydro bill for one year to offset additional power needs, after a year your hydrometer will be reset by your Local Distribution Company (LDC). Therefore it is important that your net metering system is sized correctly to avoid creating free power for your LDC.
