1. Save more money with net metering
Usually, solar panels will generate more electricity than what you are capable of consuming. With net metering, homeowners can put this excess electricity onto the utility grid instead of storing it themselves with batteries.
2. The utility grid is a virtual battery
The electric power grid is in many ways as a battery, without the need for maintenance or replacement, and with much better efficiency rates. That means more electricity goes to waste with conventional off grid solar system.
