Top 5 Solar Energy Habits to Maximize Savings

Use the highest electricity-draining appliances when the sun is at its peak.

Solar power is at its peak during daylight hours. Here in the Philippines, peak sunlight hours are between 10AM and 2PM. Whenever possible, schedule energy-intensive tasks such as running appliances, charging devices, or operating machinery during the day. Chores like doing the laundry uses the biggest energy-guzzling appliances (washing machines, clothes iron, dryer).


They're especially hungry on your home's power load if you have them running at the same time. For this reason, you should use energy-hungry appliances when sunlight is at its peak so that they run as efficiently as possible and use as much of the clean and free solar energy generated by your German solar system. By utilizing solar energy directly, you can avoid drawing electricity from the grid, further reducing your reliance on conventional power sources.

Upgrade to energy-efficient appliances and fixtures.

An old refrigerator, electric cooktop, washing machine, dryer, and even incandescent and fluorescent lights can all push past your solar energy system's capacity and draw from the grid. Implement energy-saving habits throughout your household. Simple actions like switching off lights and unplugging electronics when not in use, using energy-efficient appliances, and optimizing your home's insulation can significantly reduce your overall energy consumption. By combining these practices with solar power, you'll amplify your savings and environmental benefits.


Save more by selling your excess solar energy.

The Philippines is one of the first countries in Asia that incentivizes the use of renewable energy. Under RE 9513, net metering allows homes and businesses with grid-tied solar systems to automatically sell excess solar energy back to the distribution utility (DU) - for example, Meralco - in exchange for peso credits on your bill. These credits can then be used at the end of each month to pay for and decrease charges on your overall electric bill. Essentially, the net metering scheme will give you a bill equal to your consumed energy from Meralco, minus your earned peso credits from excess energy sold—lowering your bill even further!


Watch your roof for shade and debris.

Now that you have solar panels installed, you should ensure that your roof is maintained. Debris may accumulate and surrounding tree branches could cast some shadow over the panels. You should keep an eye on them before they worsen and compromise the efficiency of your German solar system.

Monitor your system and usage.

Keep a close eye on your energy usage patterns. By understanding when and how you consume electricity the most, you can adjust your habits accordingly. This knowledge will help you optimize your solar system's performance and maximize savings. Make sure your German solar system is operating correctly and learn how your system performs through monitoring. Luckily, every PHILERGY system can be easily monitored through the SMA Energy App. The app will show you the production of your solar PV panels, and you can also find out your energy usage from your DU. Doing this will provide you with valuable insights into your usage habits and the performance of your solar energy system.
