How Solar Makes Your Electricity More Affordable
With solar, you can produce a lot of your daily energy demands on your rooftop. Excess production gets exported to the grid to spin your meter in reverse. With Net Metering, any positive balance will go back on your bill and rolled over to the next month if you don’t use it.
Even if you use solar in the day and draw electricity from the grid at night, Net Metering will help compensate for the difference, resulting in a much lower electric bill. Some of our customers pay nothing more than a hook-up charge to the utility company when solar production is at its most efficient.
Net metering balances out your bill because even during the winter when production is low, your credits will help to reduce what you pay.
Things get even better with battery backup. You can store electricity before sending the excess to the grid. In the evenings, you can deploy from your battery so that you won’t have to rely on the grid at peak times. If the grid goes down, your solar battery can go into backup mode to power essential circuits in your home. Blackouts are no longer an issue with battery backup.
