Solar Energy FAQs

Are there any other charges that I need to take care of?

All smart meters are capable of reading solar electricity that has gone back into the grid, however, when your smart meter is originally installed it hasn’t been programmed to read power going back into the grid. You will be charged a fee by your Electricity Distributor to have your meter programmed. There may be additional costs charged by the network if it is deemed necessary.

How can I get the best benefit from a Solar System?

We look at your appliances that you have at your property. If you have a pool pump you are advised to have this running during the day rather than at night, if you have Electric Hot Water we fit a switch to charge your water heater during the day rather than at night. We educate you to use your appliances such as dishwasher and washing machine to be used during the day. If you have a wood heater and a Split system, we encourage you to use the split system during sunshine hours during the day and wood heating at night which is another way of using your solar to get the maximum benefit.
