I'm not at home during the day how do I use the power?

Your smart meter will record and track all energy flows, so you don’t have to. This includes noticing when your solar panels are producing more electricity than your home needs at any given time. At such times, your smart meter will automatically feed the excess solar electricity into the grid when you aren’t at home using it.
Your smart meter’s connection to the grid allows your electricity retailer to credit you for that excess electricity (in the form of feed-in tariffs) and also allows your home to automatically draw power from the grid when needed (i.e. at night).
