Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems

Solar PV systems can offset much of your household’s electricity needs, depending on the size of your system and the needs of your household.

Solar panels can help you save on your electricity bills as you pay for electricity you draw from the grid when you need it.

The electricity generated by your solar panels is used for your household's needs first and any additional power not consumed within the home is sent back to the grid.

You are paid a credit for the electricity you export to the grid which you can view on your bill as a 'buy back'.

Any electricity you draw from the grid to meet your needs -for example when your solar panels aren't generating electricity at night or on cloudy days- is charged back to your account.
