ELECTRICAL SELF-CONSUMPTION

Towards sustainable development with self-consumption

Distributed renewable power generation contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and to promoting the active participation of customers in the market. Its development must be regulated correctly for this system to be sustainable.

  • Distributed generation and self-consumption from renewable energy sources contribute to a reduction in emissions and help create a more sustainable system.
  • Distributed generation should have an overall economic sense:
    • The net balance or excess premiums could bring economic sustainability problems in the electricity system.

    • Rates should be upgraded, so all customers pay for grid costs under equal conditions.

  • Distributed generation is not a source of efficiency, but rather an electricity production source.
