This is necessary to obtain the benefits of solar – zero / reduced electricity costs, and zero carbon footprint.
Net metering is beneficial for owners of Rooftop Solar Power plants, on days when you are not able to utilize the electricity generated by the SPV plant in daytime, Net metering allows you to utilize the power back from grid at night time, thus balancing out your daily usage for KWh units.
This is the immediate effect of net metering on the customer’s electricity cost, and energy usage.In principle, net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid.
Right now, for customer in India, net metering feeds solar energy into the main grid, reducing the usage of electricity from the utility company, and thus reducing the electricity bills.
In India, as of now in 2018 , Net metering allows users to connect their SPV plants on First come first serve basis, as Nearest Transformer loading in your neighborhood is at 40% only .
Therefore it is important to understand, If you Opt for a Rooftop Solar Power Plant as a First Customer in your Area, the Feed-in Tariff you will get will be higher as compared to a person opting for Solar after you (connected on the same transformer )
