ELECTRICITY FOR SELF-CONSUMPTION – Portugal News January 2015

Under the new law from 15 January small solar systems producing electricity for self-consumption (under 1,500 Watts) are to be exempt from taxation and subject only to a simple registration. No contracts or metering are required.

Solar electricity for home consumption is now be available to every household in Portugal providing home owners with a genuine choice for sourcing electricity without metering or Vat / Iva surcharge.

The new Decree-Law 153/2014 applies from 15 January and simplifies the regulations applying to all grid-connected solar production systems. Essentially all solar production systems are brought into one law. There are two types of system now available:

Production Units for Self-Consumption (UPAC)

SolarGrid - typical installation

SolarGrid – typical installation

Energy from renewable or non-renewable sources produced for consumption at the point of installation.

Excess energy produced may be injected into the national grid.

The design of an UPAC self-consumption system should aim to match energy produced with energy consumed.

The size of the system should be less than twice the grid-connected power – likely to apply only to commercial operations.

Small Production Unit (UPP)

Energy from a renewable source exported 100% into the national grid for profit. This category covers earlier schemes of Mini and Micro energy production, up to an annual quota of 20Mwatts.

Energy that is consumed at the installation, for either of these UPP system types, must be 50% or more of the total energy production.
