Net-metering allows you to always be connected to the reliability of the grid.
Net-metering is a billing mechanism that allows solar consumers to use the energy that they generate at a later time. In other words, solar users only pay the net of their energy usage. This is a difference of how much solar power is fed into the grid, and how much is pulled from the grid.
An example of this is, if your business does not operate on the weekends, solar energy is still going to be produced and fed into the grid. But once Monday rolls around and electricity is now going to be used for 8-10 hours in the day, you will be pulling from the grid. Regarding net-metering, you will not be paying for that power if it is less than what you fed into the grid over the weekend/when the electricity was not in use.
Once the solar power plant is in operation, in addition to successfully providing electricity to the structure, it will also be connected to the main grid, which will allow for the property to obtain metering credits, providing a method of energy storage. This will result in the ability to use a self-sustaining system during the winter months. The surplus energy gained during the summer months when there are more hours of sunlight will aid in further reducing reliance on fossil fuels and lower energy costs significantly.
