smart meters

I personally can't wait for a smart meter I have 4 plug in grid tie inverters plugged it to 11 135 Watt Kyocera solar panels
maybe the new smarts meters will help lower my bill even more because during the day I use no power and my meter spins backwards, intern saves my family cash I think my last electric bill was $68.00 for a 5 bedroom house 3 kids 4 computers running all the time .

Make sure your power company knows you have solar PV grid tied so when the day comes and you do get a new "smart" meter it will come programmed for NET metering.

In other words, they need to know in advance to subtract the kwhr's you push out during the day, otherwise you're in for a really BIG (unpleasant) surprise!

Expect a triple or higher bill!
