Solar Smart Meters and How They Can Help
A solar smart meter is what you can use to communicate with your energy company. Without a meter, your electric company may send you a bill that overestimates the amount of energy you use. When you install a solar smart meter, you’ll eliminate the guesswork.
Who Needs a Solar Smart Meter?
If you have solar panels or are about to get solar panels, you need a solar smart meter. Here are some benefits:
- A solar smart meter measures how much energy you use from the grid.
- The meter also specifies how much energy you use from the sun, converted by your solar panels.
- In addition, the solar smart meter measures how much energy is put back into the grid or the excess energy that your solar panels provide.
- The meter communicates with your energy company without the need for Wifi.
When you use a solar smart meter, you do not have to require a representative from the energy company to visit your home to read the energy meter. Instead, the smart meter communicates it for you.
Save Money with a Solar Smart Meter
Without a meter, your energy company will send out an estimate of what they think you’re using as a solar panel owner. Power usage changes from household to household according to how many people live in the home, the duration that lights are on, how much cooking is done, and the temperature you keep the thermostat.
An energy company doesn’t want to lose money, so if they have the opportunity to charge you on an estimate, they are going to estimate usage on the higher end. With a solar smart meter, you don’t have to worry about upcharges from your energy company.
