Re: Connect air conditioner to controlled load

Re: Switching to Net Metering

I think I have the same problem. After12 months of trying to find out why my solar system was not delivering savings I checked the Australian energy regulator fact sheet. It appears that my system was installed under the original rebate scheme and I have not been switched over to net metering instead of gross metering. Why are customers not made aware of this? Especially when asking about why the system is not delivering savings as expected. A frustrated customer.
