The idea behind self-consumption is simple: you generate your own energy and then use it. But what happens when you generate more energy than you need? Can you "make money" from this surplus?
More and more people are deciding to take up self-consumption and install solar panels to generate their own energy.
The idea is simple: you generate your own energy and then use it.
But what happens when you generate more energy than you need?
One of the questions newcomers to self-consumption most frequently ask is: how can I sell my excess power to the grid to help me save on my electricity bill?
There are two important options for your surplus energy:
This is the option we recommend. It is the most common choice for electricity self-consumption users to save money through the surplus energy from their solar panel installation.
Here's how it works:
Here, we will explain the sections on your bill to help you fully understand your electricity bill.
If you are interested in surplus compensation, the process to join is quick and simple, in just four steps:
Throughout the month, your photovoltaic installation may actually produce more energy than you use. What happens in that situation is that the surplus energy is transferred to the distribution network. You get financial compensation for these surpluses.
Here is an example of how surplus compensation appears on your bill:
Current regulations also explain why the price at which you sell your surplus energy is lower than the price at which you pay for the energy you consume from the grid. The access tariff for the electricity grid and the cost of producing electricity are the reason for this price difference.
Currently, virtually all city councils offer discounts on municipal taxes for the installation of solar panels.
Sometimes this discount may include a 50% reduction on property tax (IBI) for 10 years.
