Net Metering

What is "Net Metering''?

Net Metering is an electricity policy which involves utility customers who function their own on-site "self-generation" power systems, for instance photovoltaic (PV) systems. Such systems (PV) are connected to the utility grid via the customer's main service panel and meter and, when generating more power than is needed at the site, return excess electricity to the grid through the power meter, reversing the meter from its usual direction.

Consequently, the meter is working both directions – one way to measure power purchased (when on-site demand is greater than on-site power production), the other way to measure power returned to the grid – and therefore the customer pays the difference ("net") of both transactions.

Essentially, net metering comprises a policy intended to foster private investment in the sector of renewable energy.

 

What are the benefits of a "Net Metering" application?

The installation of a photovoltaic system is a great investment for a utility customer! The significant results in power generation of the on-site grid, can lead to saving up to 1200 € per year from the electricity bill!

 

 

Autonomous Systems

Pool Water Recycling

The whole system consists of solar panels, the special converter, and DC pump (DC SOLAR PUMP). The photovoltaic panels supply with electricity the pump via the converter throughout the day (given that there is relative sunshine). Then, the energy given to the pump operates accordingly, resulting in effective pool filtration.

The selection of appropriate equipment is made by the company's engineers, considering the conditions of each pool and the given surface on which the photovoltaic panels will be installed. The whole system has very good performance which helps the pool owner to achieve serious power saving, resulting in rapid return on investment.

Water Pump Systems

There are two options available:

1. The simplest option, is to pump the water during the hours of sunshine and storage the water into a water tank for later use. The photovoltaic panels supply the inverter and the inverter consequently supplies the pump (which can be DC or AC). In the case of using an AC pump, the system can be combined with a generator or power supply and the network of EAC.

2. The second solution is storing the energy in batteries, in order to use the pump also at times when there is no sunshine.

In all cases careful calculation and proper choice of the necessary equipment are required.

Small Autonomous Systems

The system consists of photovoltaic solar panels, inverters, charge controllers and their batteries.

The photovoltaic panels produce DC current, this leads to the charge regulator, which then ensures the proper charging and discharging of batteries. The power is then led from the batteries to the converter, and from there ends up to our load. 

Finally there is the possibility of linking the autonomous system with the EAC network or with a power generator, using on grid inverters and special charge controllers along with the corresponding batteries.

Self Production Systems

"Self production" is the generation of electricity from photovoltaic panels which are installed either on the roof of the premises, or in the same area/ space where the premises are (whether this is domestic or commercial).

This electricity produced, is not injected into the Network, but can be used at any time exclusively for the premises own consumption and not for economic exploitation through the use of the Network.
