What is solar power and how does it work? With solar panels you can turn sunlight into electricity. This electricity can be used in your home, stored in a battery, or exported back to the grid. This export can then be purchased by retailers like Mercury. This is known as buy-back”,distributed generation”,import/export”, or “embedded generation”.
How can I get the 18 cent buy-back rate? You can get this offer by contacting Harrisons Solar and arranging to get your solar installed with them. They'll organise everything else, including having one of our sales agents sign you up on a 2 year residential electricity contract with us and getting an import/export meter installed. 
I’m already a solar customer, can I still get this buy-back rate? If you’ve already got solar with us, you’ll continue getting our standard 8.5 cent solar buy-back rate for any excess power you export back to the grid. The 18 cent buy-back rate is only available to customers who have their solar installed through Harrisons Solar and who sign up on a 2-year residential electricity contract. Terms and eligibility criteria apply.
What is an import/export meter? This is a meter with two registers, one to record the import usage from the network and one to record the export usage to the network. These are also known as buy-back or 2-way meters.
When will my buy-back rates start? The buy-back rates will be applied once your import/export meter is installed, and you begin exporting excess solar. It may take a few weeks for your meter to start communicating, however once it does you’ll be credited for any units you’ve exported back to the grid since your import/export meter has been installed.
