A solar system is a big investment so it’s important to make sure you’re getting the most out of it.
The reality is, solar panels can be affected by conditions outside of your control – from dirt building up on your panels to the changing seasons. In fact we estimate a Victorian household with a 4kW solar system could lose up to $100 a month if their solar system stopped working.
Not to mention how much your own energy usage habits could affect your power bill. Did you know we estimate you could save up to $60 a year just by using your washing machine when your solar system’s generating electricity?
Here at DC Power Co, we believe that anyone who’s invested in a solar system should be able to monitor its performance to make sure they’re not missing out on the solar savings.
That’s why we offer energy usage and solar monitoring to all of our customers through our solar app. So you can be confident your solar is working for you, no expensive equipment required.
With DC Power Co, you can track your electricity usage and solar exports from the palm of your hand.
Our industry-leading solar app shows your daily usage and exports to help you better understand how you use electricity and how you can save more on your power bill.
If you have a smart meter, this information will update automatically on a daily basis. You’ll be able to see how much electricity you’ve used every day down to half-hour intervals, and how much solar electricity you’ve exported back to the grid.
Finally you’ll have visibility of your system’s performance with no expensive equipment required.
The DC Power Co solar app also forecasts your upcoming electricity bill, so you’ll get a feel for what you need to pay and when. Plus, you’ll be able to compare your upcoming electricity bill to past bills so you can see if you’ve used more or less electricity than usual this month.
The DC Power Co app is smart. Over time, we’ll learn more about your electricity usage habits so your app’s bill forecasts will get more and more accurate. So don’t worry if the forecast looks a little high or low to begin with, it will get better and better the longer you’re with us.
At this stage, the forecast doesn’t include the DC Fee, which we aim to build into the calculation in the future. We’re also working on incorporating your solar exports and credit into this bill forecast, so that it gives solar customers the full picture.
We hope to have this capability ready to go in the near future, so the forecast will reflect not only the cost of the electricity you’ve bought from the grid, but also the credits you earned from your exports.
