Well I have seen personally that the new Smart Meter is not Solar freindly. I sold them 27 KWs on a Analog meter and the Games began! The meter that the power company brought out would not go backwards at all. They after finally complaining for about 2 days strongly, programed the new meter that would not go backwards at all, to have 2 seperate readings.
One reading of numbers of KWs that I buy from them and a second reading of KWs that I now sell them for .0495 per KW. There is no such thing as backing up power anymore and using what youve backed up. The only way I fully benefit from my system is to use all my heavy use items during the day when solar is available to cover the KW Hogs. And timers are really great for this when your not home. Because after sundown, its paying the power company period!
Has anyone had issues with these Smart Meters with their power company? And if so what have you dealt with and what kind of agreement have you worked out. Here I beneifit only when the system is going on my high KW drawers. At night I try to keep it to a min.
