In addition to properly orienting solar energy to avoid shading and energy loss, there are still numerous ways to fully maximize your investment in the solar system.
Plan and dimension your loads
Doing the energy-intensive tasks during the solar peak between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. will allow you to adjust your heavy daily loads based on the solar energy you receive. During these times, your home will run mostly on solar energy on a typical sunny day. One of our clients named Tony has even shared a running joke around their house since getting a solar system. Whether you are cooking a pizza or using the dryer, you have to use it before the sun goes down.
How can you shift your night burdens? Does that mean solar is only practical during the day? Not really, as it is possible to balance your nighttime usage through the net metering program. How does it work? During the day when the sun is shining, your energy consumption is powered by the sun through your sun. With the surplus or surplus electricity that your solar power generates, you earn “credits” from the energy supplier (Meralco). These credits are used to offset your nightly consumption. This can be seen on the back of the electricity bill under Net Metering.
Sometimes when the exported energy is MUCH the result is a zero calculation. You must note that more net metering credit is required to offset and clear night consumption on a kWh basis as it has a lower value compared to retail energy costs.
How can that be done? Install a system that is huge, massive, and gigantic.
POP or peak off peak with net metering
Meralco's POP program is an alternative energy pricing system that allows customers to enjoy lower electricity bills outside of peak hours. When you combine this with evening consumption net metering with solar catering, peak daily rates are a great way to speed up your return on investment and ultimately lower your monthly utility bills when properly planned.
Grow your system
If you haven't fully maximized the capacity of your roof / space for solar panels, you can try to save and invest later to add more like plug and play. This is also what Doug Kramer has in mind when building his dream house, that he has already finished everything and “naka-abang na ang lahat” so that in the time he has someone else he can expand his solar system wants, ‘In the future, only more panels need to be added.
Invest in a reputable solar company
Find a solar company that knows what they're talking about and that will help you streamline the entire process of sourcing a solar system from initial recommendation and site survey to installation, power supply, sales, and the grid metering process. Net metering is necessary in order to exploit the full potential of a solar system. However, the approval process can be lengthy and the LGU, ERC, and the utility strictly adhere to the power and distribution codes in order to obtain a safe and quick approval for a large investment like solar, finding and selecting a good solar provider is important who knows how to do his job well and get the best possible results in the long run.
