Net Metering

Net Meetering

  • Net Metering policy has been introduced by the Indian government, in which electricity meter in your home reverses by the amount of units which is transferred to the grid.
  • The customer is billed for the net electricity purchased from the utility over the entire billing period - that is, the difference between the electricity coming from the power grid and the electricity generated by the PV system.
  • Through net metering, the customer obtains the full retail electricity rate - rather than the much lower wholesale rate - for kilowatt-hours of PV- produced electricity sent to the utility power grid.
  • If your system is generating more power than you are using, the excess will flow back into the grid, turning your meter backwards
