What happens when solar panels generate more electricity than you need during the day?
The answer is, YOU CAN SELL IT. As UB Solar is a certified solar company by Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB) for net metering, our systems can SELL the excessive energy back to the grid.
What is Net Metering?
Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid. For example, if you have our PV system on the home’s rooftop, it may generate more electricity than your household requirement during daylight hours. If the home is net-metered, the bi-directional electricity meter will measure the energy that goes into the grid, the sold units will get credited against off-peak units in consumer bill. Customers are only billed for their “net” energy use. On average, about 20-40% of a solar energy system’s output goes into the grid.
