Any surplus AC energy, that is not in demand is stored in your battery system for later use.


A Consumer Unit Board controls the distribution of solar energy.


This green energy is then used to power your home when needed.


Your Import Meter then accredits any unused Energy, to and from the Grid.


With an Export Tariff, you can earn further savings by selling to the grid. They can store and distribute your surplus energy.
