GRID-CONNECTED RENEWABLE GENERATORS AND NET METERING
Home > Policies > GRID-CONNECTED RENEWABLE GENERATORS AND NET METERING
Te Aponga Uira introduced a Grid Connected Renewable Generators and Net-metering – Amendment Policy in December 2013 to explain the means and economic incentives available to customers interested in grid-tied renewable energy installations. To encourage those wanting to generate their own power from renewable sources, net-metering allows for credits to accumulate over time from the excess energy fed back into the grid. For investors, gross metering and independent power production are options to sell power to TAU.
A process of assessment and approval by TAU is mandatory before any grid-tie project can proceed. To learn more about the requirements, download the policy below.
