Will I require a new meter?
To access a feed-in-tariff, you may need a new bi-directional meter installed. This meter measures your property’s incoming and outgoing electricity. The new meter can only be installed by a licensed installer and may carry additional cost of a few hundred dollars. Usually solar power system quotes include meter costs, either as a separate item or included in the overall quote. Make sure you have a clear understanding when getting your solar power system quote if meter costs and paper work of connecting the system to the grid is included in the quoted price.
