If you’re considering the production of energy from renewable sources in a plant with an installed power of no more than 400 kW and, in addition to the own consumption, to also deliver the energy surplus to our electricity distribution grid, this makes you a prosumer.
In order to become a prosumer, it is very useful to read the newest regulations in the field, because they include provisions on how you can sell energy to the electricity supplier. In our capacity as distribution operator, we have duties with regards to the connection to the network through which we certify your capacity as prosumer, measure the consumed/injected energy and send information to the supplier in order to invoice the financial adjustments and report to the ANRE the data on the connected prosumers and the measured energy quantity.
Thus, you may choose to install such pieces of equipment to lower the electricity costs and contribute to green energy generation in our country. The quantity of energy you do not use is automatically delivered to the power grid. Why not sell this surplus?
Photovoltaic panels can be mounted on the roof of the building – ideal for a surface area without shadowing obstacles (trees, taller buildings, chimneys, etc.). For example, a 3kWp system needs a roof surface area of approximately 20 sqm. This system will generate an average production of 333 kWh/month, but the actual monthly production will vary depending on the geographical area and the season.
