What happens when I become a solar customer?
  • When you use solar power to generate your own electricity, the energy needs of your home or business will be served first, reducing the amount of energy you pull from the grid.
  • Any surplus energy you generate but do not use will be delivered back to the electric grid.
  • In the same way, any additional power you require - day or night - is automatically supplied by AMP.
  • Interconnection to the grid allows you to continue to receive the reliable service you are accustomed to as an AMP customer.
