A step-by-step guide for Net Metering in Uttar Pradesh

‘Net metering’ is a common term for solar system. But many consumers are not aware about how it is working. When generated energy is more than the consumed energy then this net metering will be applicable. This is a mechanism offering a credit to the commercial and residential consumers by sending back the excess electricity to the grid. Solar panels usually produce more electricity than you need. This extra electricity will send back to grid and they will pay energy credit on bill so that you can equalize your energy use in winter when solar panels are producing less electricity. Additional equipment called Bi-directional meter, has to be added in the solar system to avail the net metering facility. This meter can measure the electricity that flows in the grid so that your utility can track how much energy is produced by the solar system and how much the consumer used.
