How Do Solar Storage and Metering Make Solar Sustainable During Nighttime?
Now that we know the solar panels do not work at nighttime, or when the sun’s radiation is not available, there are a few options that you can go for to store the energy and make the most out of your investment in sustainability.
What Is Net Metering?
The best part of installing solar panels is that you can export the additional energy produced by the solar panels to the main grid and earn some extra bucks.
However, this is not the only benefit. By keeping your connection to the main grid, you can still avail electricity whenever your supply from your solar panels is not enough. Especially when the solar panels work less on rainy or cloudy days, the main grid can fulfill the shortage. Don’t worry about the extra charges, as they get adjusted from the energy that you give back to the main grid.
What Are My Options For Backup Power?
During day time, we are usually out at work or even if we are at home, we don’t require electrically operated lights as much, compared to evenings.
For situations like these, we suggest you go for either net metering or batteries. However, choosing to go with net metering is a better option as it helps you earn money back from the grid with the excess supply.
