This is a question that I hear quite a bit. Not just wondering if the meter turns backwards, but if Solar really works and is it a viable option for me?
Well, that depends. On an existing homes, ALWAYS a homeowner should consider making their home as energy efficient as possible FIRST before they consider purchasing solar panels. Why? Because they can be rather costly, let’s first make sure that we getting the meter outside going a little bit slower so we maximize our investment of solar.

Wen you are building a home, and it is going to be really Energy Efficient, you can really maximize the output from solar.
How much power does it take? How many panels? Well, the wasted electricity is really when you are not at home. Your home is still pulling power from various items such as computers, refrigerator, etc. To turn the meter backwards, it does NOT mean you have to get your home ‘Off the Grid’.
So, here we have it. If you need proof of the meter really turning backwards, here ya go! Oh, and there is a little more information in there also. :0) It’s kind of cheesy and me goofing off a little bit with the meters, but I think it’s effective.
