Net metering is a policy that allows businesses and homeowners to receive bill credit for the electricity that their solar energy system produces. The term net metering refers to the method of accounting for the photovoltaic (PV) system's electricity production. Net metering allows utility customers with PV systems to use any excess electricity they produce to offset their electric bill.
When a net metered PV system produces electricity, the kilowatts generated are first used for any electric load in the structure. If the PV system produces more electricity than the structure needs, the extra kilowatts are fed into the utility grid.
Your solar array design is tailored to your specific energy usage, site considerations such as shading, roof pitch and azimuth, and available space.
The size of your solar energy system depends on several factors including how much electricity you use, and how much space is available (roof or ground). The solar energy system can be designed to reach net-zero or just a portion of your energy usage. Village Solar Co.'s team can quickly work through these factors with you to determine what system would best suit your individual needs.
Your savings will depend on how much you ay your utility for electricity and how much your utility will pay you for any excess power that you generate with your solar energy system.
Village Solar Co. uses state of the art software analytical tools can predict what your new solar energy system will produce on an annual basis and compare that number to your annual electricity to get an idea of how much you will save.
Absolutely, and with Enphase you can expand you system in as little as 1 panel increments! This allows for easy integration of additional panels with minimal hassle.
SolarEdge and other equipment manufactures offer options for expansion as well, be it through adding a few more panels to an existing string (where specs allow) or adding another string inverter and whole new array.
