If you’re consuming more electricity than your solar system is producing, your power will come from the grid. This is where the electricity credits come in useful. The cost of power you use at night is offset by the clean energy you provided the grid during the day.
When your excess electricity goes to TNB / SESB under the NEM scheme, your utility company issues you a credit, in certain jurisdictions. And that’s how you start lowering energy bills. Those credits offset future consumption like the electricity you use at night for the next 24 months
If you generate more solar energy than you’re consuming, it gets fed back to the grid and distributed elsewhere. Think about it, your solar energy could be helping power a school, hospital or your next-door neighbor.
When you understand how solar PV works, you can appreciate it even more.
At Ditrolic Solar, we believe in the power of the sun and we want everyone to understand how it works, so they too can benefit from the power of solar energy.
