What is Feed-In Management (FIM) provisioning?
In many of our towns, smaller sized ‘Basic Micro EG’ solar energy systems can only be installed if it is provisioned for FIM. In addition to your panels and inverter, you will need to install a small power outlet and box so the system can be retrofitted with a FIM device at a later date.
If your system is provisioned for Feed-In Management and we later determine that a FIM device is required, we will retrofit your system with a device and it will be at Horizon Power’s cost. We will contact you to discuss any changes to your renewable energy system before it takes place.
The FIM device helps us to safely manage the impact of excess solar on the electricity grid, without disrupting supply to our customers.
Please discuss the cost to install the FIM outlet and box with your solar supplier as this may vary, depending on your location and installer.
