Net metering is a program that lets you install a small renewable energy system, such as solar and wind, to reduce your electric bills and earn extra credit by sharing excess electricity with the utility company.
You’ll still be connected to the public grid. That way, in the event that you need more electricity than you get from the solar power system generate, the usual public grid will give you the electricity.
Likewise, if your solar PV system generates more electricity than you use, that extra electricity is exported into the public grid, and you’ll get credit on your bill for it from the electricity company (CEB/ LECO).
For net metering you need a special meter called a net meter installed to record the difference between the amount of electricity your system exported to the electric grid, and the amount of electricity you take out of the grid.
Okatan brings you the high quality, reliable and durable net meters from the world renowned brands for our customer.

Solar Photovoltaics (PV) Panels
Solar panels are one of the most popular sustainable solutions to date. The uptake of solar solutions worldwide has grown by approximately 50% per year for the last decade and continues to grow year on year.
It is now a proven mass-produced technology, typically sold with a 25 year performance guarantee and a life expectancy of 40+ years.
Solar PV systems are relatively simple, there are no moving parts and we are able to offer a maintenance contract on any Solar sense system installed to retain its performance and safeguard it from possible breakdowns.
Solar PV panels are generally best installed on roofs with little shading, however, with technological advancements it is possible to generate a yield from any orientation.
Solar panels can be fitted almost anywhere and can take the form of glass, roof tiles, slates, membranes and more.
There a range of different panel types – all of which have a range of benefits and drawbacks and can be utilised to create an optimum solution
We use the very best performance-guaranteed, tier 1 products from brand names including LG, SunPower & AUO (Ben Q) to name a few.
Installing solar panels is a long-term decision and therefore it makes sense to choose quality products that will not only perform now but continue to generate in 40+ years.
How do solar PV panels work?
Sunlight is made up of photons, and when it hits the semi-conductor metal of the PV panel, electrons are released; these electrons form a direct current. People have been using PV for years; your pocket calculator for example typically has a number of PV cells. NASA has been using and developing this technology for years; satellites and other space going bodies rely on this technology to produce the power in order to run.
We offer wide range of customized solar power solutions for small, medium and large enterprise and residential needs.
