Step by step procedures for the installation of self-consumption
Building permit and environmental authorisation:
When undertaking any installation of solar panels or electricity self-consumption system you need to complete the procedures and present this documentation correctly to both the Local Authority and the Regional Government.
Self-consumption installations should apply for a building permit in accordance with the municipal regulations in force at the chosen site: Municipal regulations will define whether it is sufficient to simply make a responsible declaration and/or prior communication of the building work.
Self-consumption installations with surpluses and producing less than 100 kW should not require environmental impact or public utility procedures, except in cases where the site is in a protected area.
Electricity self-consumption code (CAU):
The self-consumption code will identify the self-consumption installation, as it relates all the associated consumption and generation points. It is a numerical code that identifies your installation and is provided by the electricity distributor for you or your representative (installer, developer of the self-consumption installation).
This number will need to be given to the Regional Administration when you process the self-consumption installation.
Adaptation of the access contract with the distribution company:
Finally, when you receive our letter with the data provided by your regional authority regarding your self-consumption installation, you must confirm within ten working days that they are correct and contract the product that best suits your needs. In turn, we will take the necessary steps with the distribution company to modify your access contract to reflect the type of self-consumption you are using and thus comply with current regulations.
Electrical installation certificate:
The Electrical Installation Certificate, or CIE, is a document that certifies the safety and good condition of the self-consumption installation. This documentation is necessary to register or modify your electricity supply contract to adapt it to the type of electricity self-consumption you have chosen.
