How does solar self -consumption work?
As we know, there are many doubts concerning solar installation for self-consumption and how it works. We have written this post in hopes that we would clarify some points on this matter.
As is to be expected, the purpose of a solar installation is to obtain energy directly and, of course, freely. As you know, since 2018, it is recognized as a right to install solar installations for self-consumption, as the solar tax was removed. Thanks to this initiative, more and more families are starting to buck up on using this green energy source which apart from not polluting, only reports benefits.
What about you? You would like to count on a solar installation for self-consumption at your house but you know nothing about how it works? Don’t worry, in this article we will tell you how solar installations self-consumption works and what grants are available.
How do solar installations for self consumption work?
Solar photovoltaic installation, despite looking complicated, actually isn’t. On the contrary. At Univergy Solar, experts in the installation of solar cells for self-consumption, both industrial or residential or even agrovoltaic, we want you to know the mechanism for which it works.
Solar installations for elf-consumption are composed of photovoltaic panels and a solar inverter. These panels capture solar light and the inverter transforms the continuous current into alternating current in order to supply your home with energy. Now, to understand better how it works we need to know the types of solar self-consumption.
-Individual self-consumption: this one is also subdivided in two, connected to the grid or isolated. In general, it is highly recommended to stay connected to the grid due to possible errors or in case batteries are not enough. When producing surplus, if we have an electric market, the company offers an economic compensation for injecting it to the grid. In case you don’t have an electric marketer, energy surplus can be stored in batteries which the owner can manage himself.
-Shared self-consumption: in this case the installation for self-consumption is connected to multiple houses. However, they are les popular because measuring is complicated.
-Industrial self-consumption: the use of solar panels for self-consumption is not limited to residential use. Today, more and more enterprises and organizations consider the benefits of using solar energy.
In order to get to know the size of the solar installation based on your needs, it is recommended to use the tools we, as a renewable energy company, have such as the self-consumption calculator. Though, if you prefer you can always solve your doubts with our team of professionals, who will be delighted to help you and offer the best solution.
What grants exist for solar installations for self-consumption?
Solar energy, as we mentioned, is a clean energy source so it is necessary in order to take care of the environment and stop climate change. But , what if we can also obtain economic benefit? Would you resist?
Not only because it will translate to a 50% reduction of your energy bill, but also because we can Access a great variety of grants such as:
- Bonuses on the IBI and ICIO
- IRPF reductions
- Federal grants
You must know this is a very profitable alternative, which has become increasingly profitable thanks to the existing grants.
