WHAT IS COLLECTIVE SOLAR POWER?
We speak of collective solar power when the electricity from the same installation is used by more than one consumer. The most common is photovoltaic solar. Electricity can be consumed at the time of its generation, stored in accumulation systems or, otherwise, poured into the network as surplus.
It is an internal network because the consumers are connected directly to the solar panels, without the need for the electricity to go through the wiring of the electrical distribution network. Finally, it is an installation with surpluses because the energy not consumed is discharged into the network with financial compensation through a direct deduction of the electricity discharged in the monthly bill.
For this reason, Energy Nordic had partnered with Bettergy to offer the EnergySequence platform, which combines knowledge of energy efficiency, and data analytics to offer reliable and intelligent energy-saving recommendations.
How does shared solar energy works?
It represents great economic and energy savings by allowing several consumers to share the same photovoltaic installation.
It is therefore open to blocks of flats, industrial parks and communities. And involves the installation of solar panels on the roof of a building, or an industrial warehouse, and gives photovoltaic electricity supply to the neighbours, or adjoining warehouses.
- Both the installation and the self-consumers must be in the same cadastral reference
- In the case of warehouses or businesses, they must be a maximum of 500 meters from the production center.
- It is necessary to reach an agreement between at least 1/3 of the owners of the houses or buildings through a legal form (community of owners, energy communities, etc.)
How much does the installation cost?
It is important to note that the more self-produced energy consumed, the greater the use of the installation.
We offer you the possibility of knowing quickly what the total cost would be, the savings generated, the number of panels needed and the total power to be installed.
One of the strengths of the EnergySequence platform is its ability to support different financing models, this allowing models to be simulated through which the end-user:
- Acquisition of the plant in the property at the beginning.
- Leasing models whereby the user pays a fee for installation.
- PPA models through which the investment is made by a third party and the end-user will only pay for self-consumed energy.
- Shared expenses
- Energy bill savings
- Clean energy
- Post sale
- Custom installation
- We do everything for you
Distribution and Compensation:
Currently, the distribution system is based on static coefficients which can be calculated based on your consumption or a quota set in advance. The installation is carried out on the roof of the building, and each neighbour participates in a coefficient.
The electrical flow goes to the electrical connection of the building and is compensated with each neighbour based on the predefined coefficient.
When the installation is finished, we take care of communicating to Industria and the distributor divides the participation coefficient of each neighbour. These organisms communicate this participation to the marketers so that they allocate the energy compensation to each neighbour.
This compensation is made based on consumption and the marketer is obliged to do so.
Through a collaboration with Bettergy, we offer you and/or your community of neighbours the opportunity to place solar panels and thus you can save money on your bills.
