Solar for Auto-Consumption Facts – Portugal

What you need to know regarding

new solar “auto-consumption”

systems Portugal (update 01.2015):

  • Auto-consumption Solar offers a free independent supply of electricity for use by domestic and commercial property owners. The technology was available for 15 years but only recently making a real “property owner´s choice” available with new compliant regulations permitting Auto-Consumo systems in Portugal.
  • Auto-consumption electricity is electricity for use not for sale. It is not “mini- or micro-generation”, however all solar production schemes are now classified under one Decree-Law No. 153/2014 effective from Jan 2015. (See our Jan 2015 Newsletter).
  • Systems are sized to match the “daily energy use” profile of our client´s properties.
  • Systems can be sized from 250 Watts to 100 KWatts, offering a viable supplementary energy source attractive for domestic and commercial property owners.
  • Systems of less than 1,500 Watts need only a prior notification for registration purposes.  Systems of only 250 Watts do not need registering.
  • Where it is considered advisable to limit or prevent excess output to the grid network, a compliant option is also available.
  • Payback on capital investment largely depends on system size. Factors are capital cost, your electricity profile and compliant taxes. A system of up to 5 Kwatts for a typical domestic property can be expected to pay for itself in 7 years.
  • Auto-consumption Solar represents a big step towards energy saving where it counts, at the point of use. It is therefore of interest financially as well as step towards the ideal energy efficient sustainable property.
