Will I need a new switchboard and/or meter ?
In order to install a grid connected solar power system at your premises, you will need to have a compatible switchboard and meter.
A meter exchange may be required after the installation of your new solar system. The energy produced by your solar system interacts with the main power grid and the loads in your house. Without an appropriate mains meter, any energy you sell to the power grid can be inaccurately measured, or even completely disregarded, greatly reducing the system’s effectiveness in reducing your energy bill. A ‘bi-directional’ meter is installed in place of the existing one-way meter, allowing the reading of energy in both directions; both buy and sell.
