Use the solar you’re generating at your home
If you install solar, you’ll most likely have a net meter. Net metering allows solar customers to be paid for any excess generation that has not been consumed by the household.
However in general, you’re better off using the solar power your panels generate rather than exporting it, and our solar monitoring tools can help you do that.
Benefits of net metering:
- Excess solar you generate and don’t use is exported to the grid and you receive solar credits in return.
- With the Powershop app, you can see how much solar you’re sending to the grid.
Your solar energy insights with the Powershop app
Powershop solar customers can track their energy and solar performance with the Powershop app and online tools.
Since the solar energy you generate is free from the sun, it’s generally better to use it rather than pay for energy from the grid. The Powershop app can help you do this.
With Powershop’s solar monitoring app you can see:
- How much solar you have fed into the grid in half hourly and daily time periods.
- When you’re not using any energy from the grid and instead using all your solar energy.
These insights will help you use your solar panels to your advantage to get the best savings.

Your solar energy questions answered
Our most frequently asked questions about solar energy are answered below. Need more info? Get in touch here.
When your household uses less power than your solar panels generate, the excess power is exported to the electricity grid. Your solar inverter records what’s being exported, and sends that to your retailer. Your retailer then pays you for the energy you exported.
Once you’ve got your panels installed, call us on 1800 462 668 so we can make sure you’re all set up and ready to get your Feed-in Tariff.
It takes more than just us to get power to your property. There’s a whole supply chain and everyone’s responsible for doing their bit. This means that the pricing you see on your bill is made up of a few different elements including usage charges, daily supply charge, GST, premiums on powerpacks (eg. GreenPower)
and your feed in tariff. Learn more
You can find your rates in your desktop account and in your Powershop app. Your solar Feed-in Tariff can be found on your monthly PDF bill and on our pricing page.
On desktop head to the “usage” tab, then select “your rates” on the left. On the Powershop app, (download from here), you can see your rates by selecting “Your Rates” in the menu, which can be found at the top left.
A lot of people install solar to help reduce their energy bills. There are a few simple things you need to know to be able to do this. The first is understanding how much energy your system generates, and what you are using. It’s not enough to know what your system is generating on average. You also need to know how much of an impact it has against what your household is actually using. Simply put, if you are using less than you’re generating, you should be saving. Read more
Knowing your solar system and how to use it will help you get the best savings. It can also help you to identify a problem with your panels.
Unless you’re still lucky enough to be receiving a premium Feed-in Tariff, you are generally better off using the electricity your system generates. This is because the energy your PV system is generating is free! The more free energy you can use, the better. If you are able to feed-in what you don’t use and make a few bucks – even better.
Smart meters mean we get more accurate consumption information and they don’t need a human to manually read them. We get your smart meter readings daily.
