@mr.yuckso the way it works where I live is we pay a flat rate for electricity per kWh, and then you have to also pay for transmission and distribution.
how this should work for me is in my long sun months, I will be exporting onto our grid (which they pay me for at the rate I pay per kWh) and because I’m not importing electricity my trans+dist costs should be heavily reduced.
there is also an incentive for “micro generators” (aka me) where twice a year I can change my electricity rate, so in the long sun months I can swap to an inflated price so that my exported generation is compensated at a higher rate (though I will also have to pay that inflated rate for electricity I import in the evenings) & then when the winter months come back I switch back to my lower rate. The fed govt also kicked in $5k for me and is hooking up a no interest 10yr loan to pay off the rest of my balance on the cost of install… which should pay for itself with my generation savings. Hope this made sense.
another thing to keep in mind is in Canada we are hosed on the cost of a battery, you guys get way better prices there so you could very well explore if a battery system makes more sense for your situation.
