If you have solar panels, you’ll want to use this self-generated energy as much as possible. On average, only 30% of generated solar energy is used immediately while the remaining 70% is injected back into the grid. The solar mode can help you increase your self-consumption, while also reducing your dependence on the grid.
Self-consumption refers to the consumption of energy you obtain directly from your solar panels and therefore not from the electricity grid. It is important you try and use as much of your self-generated energy as possible, as you pay absolutely no distribution costs for the energy generated yourself
