Under the present system of energy net metering program, we only generate credits 1:1 at the point of use. So, when the sun is shining, and we are using all of the power produced during that time, the cost of power produced is equal to what the utility is charging. Any additional power your solar system generates is only generating credits at about 50% of what the utility charges.
This makes sizing a system important if you are trying to get the best return on your investment. Ensuring that your system is sized correctly may make a huge difference in your power bill.
Having an audit done often makes for increased savings before going solar and can allow the end-user to install an optimised system and know exactly how much power they are using while the sun is shining.
