Net Metering with Solar

Lower or eliminate your electricity bills by switching to solar energy systems. According to the Ontario Energy Board statistics hydro rates have increased 14% annually over the last 7 years.

NET METERING

You produce clean, green energy made from renewable resources, and in exchange you benefit from lowered electricity bills. Should you generate and supply more energy than you take from the utility grid, you will see a credit applied to future bills which can be carried forward for up to one year.

Consumers of electricity in Ontario who have taken steps to start generating their own energy, from clean and renewable sources like solar homes, are typically able to participate in Net Metering. As part of this program, you have the option of transferring your surplus energy to the power grid in exchange for discounted energy costs. Our team of qualified experts have installed residential solar power systems and other renewable energy systems across the province on all types of roof and ground applications.

How Net Metering Works

The process is not at all difficult. Simply connect your renewable energy generation system to the public grid and leave the rest up to your local utility provider. From here, they will read and monitor your energy usage and generation, removing the value of the energy you supply to the distribution grid from the value of the actual amount of electricity your home or business has consumed.  What you will see on your monthly statement is the ‘net’ difference between the energy used and the energy provided. As a result, your home or business becomes a solar power plant.

Net Metering Info/Rewards

Net Metering is an agreement between you and your hydro supplier.

They will track the amount of power your solar system produces, and the amount of power your household uses. Your supplier will then give you credits when you produce more power than you are using. The credits will carry forward for up to 12 months, so over the year your usage and production will net zero. This means you will pay nothing for hydro! The typical payback for a Net Metering system is 8-10 years, with this payback time frame decreasing every year due to the rising hydro cost.

According to the Ontario Energy Board statistics hydro rates have increased 14% annually over the last 7 years. Rates are predicted to continue increasing it makes sense to produce your own power, and free yourself from this increasing financial burden. On top of this AVVIA Renewable Energy offers comprehensive warranties on all of our products and installations including a 25 year efficiency warranty on panels. This means your system will be producing for many years to come.

Balancing Your Budget?

The benefit of net metering does not exist solely for homeowners. Business operations needing high volumes of electricity in order to carry out routine operations, such as industrial facilities, can also greatly reduce their energy costs by investing in renewable energy generation systems. PV solar panels also help businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and go Green!

Consider becoming grid-independent with Solar Energy!

On a much larger scale than the residential user, net metering enables businesses to capitalize on all of the energy produced by their solar panels and become independent from the local electricity provider. Should the services of the utility company still be required, the cost-for-service will be greatly reduced.
