The term net-metering refers to the institutional framework that allows the consumer to be a self-producer of electricity to cover a significant part of his needs, while at the same time giving him the possibility to connect to the grid to dispose of any excess energy.

This institutional framework stipulates that the energy injected into the network is recorded with a special meter and then offset against the energy consumed by the network, correspondingly reducing the electricity bill.

For the general public, net-metering has been identified with the utilization of photovoltaic installations, although it is also extended to other technologies (wind turbines, biomass/biogas plants, etc.).

Photovoltaic systems can be installed on buildings or on land, or other structures, (agricultural warehouses, livestock units, etc.).

The installation terms and conditions are:

  • The existence of an active permanent power supply.
  • Match exclusively with a consumption meter.
  • Installation in the same or adjacent space.

Natural persons (commercial or not), and legal persons of public and private law, who either own the space in which the photovoltaic system will be installed, or have the legal use of it, have the right to install.

Of particular interest is the case of “Virtual netmetering”, which concerns special cases of self-producers, with which netmetering can be done with more than one meter, in the same area or remote locations.

A square meter (1 ) of photovoltaic can give us about 300 KWh annually.

The electricity bills and the prediction of future needs (eg heat pump installation, car charging, etc.), will help us to estimate our needs and choose the right installation size.

The installation of photovoltaics is becoming more and more attractive today, the installation costs and the payback time are drastically reduced.

It can be the best investment to shield the economy of the family or business from energy uncertainty.

They are today, the most important proposal for the protection of the environment and the planet.

A simple proposal, with distribution at the points of need, that could be widely adopted.

Consumers are looking for funding programs from the State that do not exist.
