With a two-seasoned climate in the Philippines, ample amount of sunshine can be enjoyed. The Department of Energy says that the country can harness the sun’s power as its radiation across the country has a power generation potential of 4.5 to 5.5 kWh per square meter per day.

Statistics may confuse you from the fact, so here’s the fact: households and companies can greatly benefit from the sun by SIMPLY putting solar panels onto their roofs. How? Through the use of double-rate meter, the photovoltaic system (your solar panels) can return the excess energy it produces to the power grid of your distribution company (MERALCO, TARELCO). This will off-set your electricity consumption.

Net Metering

Net-Metering is the first non-fiscal incentive mechanism fully implemented under the Renewable Energy (RE) Act of 2008. Through the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels up to 100 kW, house owners and commercial establishments can now partly satisfy their electricity demand by themselves.

Net Metering Policies in the Philippines

If the energy produced by your system is more than what you need to pay to your distributor, they shall carry it over unto the next billing period. In cases where it is recurrent, your credits should always be carried over to the next billing period until you can use your credits to pay. Though the net-metering rules are still silent about these credits, options like (1) perpetually carry-over the credits to the succeeding bills until consumed or (2) the distributor pays in cash at the end of the calendar year are available.
