How should I use my solar during a price spike?


If you have solar, your exports are as good as gold during price spikes: you can briefly earn a real-time FiT above $1/kWh (up to a maximum of ~$16/kWh) by exporting at times when the grid needs it most.

The best way for savvy solar customers to take advantage of this is to reduce their electricity usage as much as possible, maximising the amount of power they are exporting to the grid. Some of our customers earned up to $150 on a single day last January by doing this.
