We are currently in the process of installing a photovoltaic system in an apartment building, or already have one, and would like to share and collectively self-consume the generated electricity between several parties. The following information applies whether the installation is owned by an individual or several partners.
The concept of collective self-consumption can be adopted in the following cases:
- in a residence (several network users in the same building, all connected via a single access point)
- between neighbours (maximum three network users), where the distance between the two furthest supply or extraction points does not exceed 100 metres.
- in the specific case of a network user with several supply points (e.g. agricultural, business or industrial premises).
Collective self-consumption is only feasible on the low-voltage network belonging to a single grid operator.
In order to determine the terms of distribution, the remuneration of the distributed electricity, as well as the terms of payment, Klima-Agence provides a template for the creation of a collective self-consumption group.
