As our world increasingly moves towards cleaner and more sustainable energy, we at Meralco support the use of solar, wind, water, biomass and other sources of renewable energy sources. Currently, the most readily available and widely used of these sources is solar.
Meralco can help you monitor your solar installation through Net-Metering, a program under RA 9513, the Renewable Energy (RE) Act that allows customers to install an RE facility within their premises up to a capacity of 100kW. Any excess electricity not consumed in the home or business is exported to a distribution utility (in this case, Meralco). In return, Meralco compensates customers through credits in their monthly bill.
Safety - Meralco helps ensure that your solar installation complies with safety standards and regulations to prevent electrical fires, electrocution, damage to appliances and other electrical equipment
Sustainability – consulting with Meralco guarantees that your installation is synchronized with the grid and operates sustainably over a long period.
Eco-friendly energy - the Net-Metering Program can be applied to any type of renewable energy installation, be it solar, wind, or biomass, as long as it is below 100kW. Aside from generating power for your own use, your carbon footprint is also significantly reduced.
Bill credits – if you generate more energy than you can use, you can export it to the power grid and earn bill credits.
