"We want to derive 100 percent of our energy from the solar panels," he explains. The "grid" so to speak, will run bi-directionally. "There will be an electrical meter provided to us, but it goes both ways. At our peak usage, there could be times when we actually do consume power from the electric company, but there will also be times when our net use will be less and therefore, essentially, we'll be feeding the grid. The meter will spin in reverse."
