Ok, you might not know it, but currently you probably have a analog usage meter installed in your home. It resembles a little silver disk spinning around and around counting how much electricity you use. This technology is apart of what can be called a dumb grid. It gives Ergon no remote signals indicating how much electricity you are using and at what times you are using more or less.
In order to be funded for electricity generated by your newly installed solar power system you are going to have to have a digital meter. This is the way of the future and is a part of what makes a smart grid. This basically means electricity around the grid can be measured for efficiency purposes.
Good news! Ergon will replace your old analog system with a new digital system at no charge! This will enable them to measure your generation and usage in detail.
