An applicant that wishes to connect an on-site renewable energy system, with the main purposes of satisfying his/her local demand for electricity, and wishing to export any excess to the grid, is eligible to be included in a net metering scheme, subject to the required technical standards, and safety requirements (please refer to the checklist in the application form to view these standards and criteria).
Renewable energy sources do not always coincide with the demand for electricity in our homes and offices. With net metering, a client can export RE power when the demand is low, and reduce the imported power, when the on-site demand is high, thus maximizing the value of RE sources. Any excess energy fed to the grid by the RE plant will be deducted from the utility bill that is issued every two months. If a producer exports renewable energy more than his/her total energy consumption in any given billing period, then the excess balance is transferred and credited to the next billing period. This process happens over 1 year (January to December), where at the end of the year the meter will be reset again to zero.
One can apply to a net meter by filling in the net metering application and uploading all the needed documentation online.
A unique ID will be automatically sent to the applicant’s email address. The unique ID can be used to track the application on the net metering website.
The process can take up to 3 months from the application submittal to final approval. The speed of the process is dependent on the completeness and accuracy of the application form filled and the submitted documentation requested.
A centralized renewable energy plant feeding energy into the utility grid can operate under a virtual (community-based) net-metering scheme. The energy exported by the plant will be divided and distributed among the different shareholders based on the size of their share. The billing and the net energy consumed is individually calculated for each subscriber via a web-based tool that communicates with the installed smart meters. For more information on community-level net-metering, please contact CEDRO - UNDP.
It is mandatory that all the required certificates are presented for the components in order to attain an approval for a net meter installation.
