NET METERING FOR SPARK SOLAR CUSTOMERS
Most of the people are not aware of the net metering, as it is an advanced way of keeping the record of the electricity billing. With the help of net metering, all the customers whether commercial or residential who have a solar system installed for generating electricity can sell extra electricity to the government. The net metering system in Pakistan is a mechanism that will credit the owners of the solar system for the electricity which they add to the grid. As we know that electricity prices in Pakistan are very high, net metering in Pakistan is the most convenient solution we can have for solving our electricity billing issue as well.
Net metering in Pakistan explained with example:
Let’s take the example of a shop/office/home which uses the electricity produced by the PV system on the rooftop. Surely the electricity produced will be more than the need of the shop during the daytime. If this shop will have a net meter than the electricity meter will run backward. Hence, if the meter continues to run backward, the bill sent to the consumer by WAPDA will be in negative numbers, this means WAPDA has to pay you this amount. This amount will be adjusted against the electricity which will be used by the shop at night or other times when the load or consumption will be more.
