How Solar Net-Metering works?

The working of net-metering starts when solar energy is consumed by the house, building, or commercial. In simple language, in grid-connected Solar PV systems, the DC output generated by the solar panels is converted into AC (alternating current) output by a solar inverter. This output, from the solar inverter, is called solar energy.

Here is the best part, if the generated solar energy is more than what the connected loads in the building or home consume, the surplus (remaining) solar energy is automatically exported to the DISCOM’s distribution network with the help of a two-way meter.
