Solar PV - Feed In Tariff or Net Metering ?

Postby championc » Wed Jan 22, 2020 5:42 pm

Can anyone confirm if excess Solar power, fed back to the grid, is either paid for via a Feed in Tariff (FIT) or is Net Metering used ?

If you are a prosumer, ie producer and consumer via the same meter then net metering is used. The calculation done each month, and you can not be credited for more than you consume even if you fed in more. Electric company keeps the extra and you receive no payment for the extra.

Brilliant - Net Metering is possibly simpler anyway.

I assume that systems must be registered with Endesa (or whoever). Would anyone have details for who or where (and how) to register ? Or do you simply inform the power company

We had panels installed last July but were told net metering was not possible/allowed. We are about to start getting paid 4.9c for what we export. I'd be very interested to know if there was a net metering option?

Could it be down to different electricity suppliers ?

And who with or how do you register a self built Solar PV system ?

We had our solar panels installed in November and the firm that installed them contacted us a couple of weeks ago asking for our official address, our CUPS number from the electric bill and Cadastral reference, (on IBI), which they were supplying to Endessa so that we could be registered.
He said they haven't actually haven't started paying the feed-in tarif yet, but would soon.

Thanks Gerry,

At least I know that therefore Endesa must be notified in some way. I'll try contacting them directly.
