Another way to convert from gross to net metering is the “rewire option”, which involves rewiring your gross meter to operate as a net meter. This option is available to customers with a single-phase supply and single-phase generation who are not on a controlled load tariff.
An Accredited Service Provider – Level 2 (ASP2) can check if you are eligible for the rewire option. They will need to inspect your customer installation to determine if your switchboard is suitable, which may incur a fee. If you are eligible and you decide to rewire your meter, you will need to engage an ASP2 to do the work.
Some electricity retailers are offering new smart meters, wired for net metering of usage and generation. We encourage you to evaluate and compare all options and quotes from your ASP and retailer before making a final decision.
