Net Metering FAQ
What changes with Net-Metering?
From now on the owner of the photovoltaic system will not be paid through a guaranteed price for his system production. He will be reimbursed through energy offsetting between his individual consumption and photovoltaic production. This minimizes energy cost over the 25 years agreement with the energy supplier. It also means that the risk of unexpected changes of energy prices by supplier’s unilateral decisions is eliminated.
How will I know which photovoltaic system better suits my needs?
Clarus ESCO examines your building and analyses your energy consumption. We then design the optimal photovoltaic system for you, which will minimize your electric power cost. Appropriately trained staff and specialized software are available to ensure that you are taking maximum advantage of NET METERING benefits. With the NET METERING system, the size/power of the photovoltaic system which is economically optimal is not necessarily the largest that can fit on your rooftop. Optimal power depends on your house/business consumption. Contact us now and the engineers of CLARUS ESCO will do a free initial assessment of the photovoltaic system that will result in the best annual profit.
How much can I expect to save? Am I protected from future changes?
Saving depends on how and when you consume electric power and can reach 80% of your total annual spending for electric power. In any case CLARUS ESCO can estimate your annual savings on an individual basis. Moreover the complete analysis that is carried out takes into account all reasonable changes that could affect your profit (i.e. electric power’s price increase or annual reduction of photovoltaics’ production)
Where can I set up my photovoltaic system?
According to the current law the Photovoltaic systems can be established on the roof or in nearby areas of the building (such as gardens). In the case of a block of flats, the system can be placed in common areas, with approval from the other owners.
I do not have technical knowledge or cannot spare the time to monitor the system's operation. Is there any way for me to avoid taking care of the operation and maintenance of the system?
It is true that a photovoltaic system is more complicated than a common electrical device. The depreciation of the investment through savings on your electric bill depends on the proper operation of the system. Malfunctions lead to significant fluctuations in your earnings. CLARUS ESCO covers exactly this necessity for profit stability, providing technical support and monitoring the annual production of the photovoltaic system. As a result, the owner of the system will now be able to enjoy the profits without any stress.
What exactly is the guarantee for the annual production of a photovoltaic system through an energy efficiency contract?
An Energy Efficiency Contract guarantees the annual production of the system, based on our Energy Efficiency Study on which our offer is based. This agreement, while it is active, is higher than the guarantees of our equipment suppliers and ensures that CLARUS has a strong incentive to design the system properly, choose equipment optimally, install the system efficiently and monitor its operation and maintenance. Clarus Esco’s Energy Efficiency Contract, covers the most important risks that the owner of the system might face. This type of contract is already common in technologically advanced nations and has recently been legally introduced in Greece.
