Starting from July 1 of this year, the implementation, restoration of electricity connection and load changes, as well as microgenerator connection is even more rapid, convenient and simple! The Public Utilities Commission (PUC) in cooperation with Sadales tīkls has made significant changes to the regulations to improve the procedure of receiving services and the methodology for determining fees. For your convenience the new version of the regulations is available here.
We will implement the applications for microgenerator connection and generation capacity changes submitted before June 30 in accordance with the procedure in force at the time of their submission.
To produce 100% green energy for your home or business, you have the opportunity to add a microgenerator that produces electricity using solar panels or a wind generator to your electricity connection. Before connecting the equipment, a permit must be obtained from Sadales tīkls, indicating that the functioning of the microgenerator will not cause interference in the common electrical network.
Technical parameters of the microgenerator
Once the solar panels or a wind generator have started to produce green energy, the electricity which the manufacturer does not consume immediately is transferred to the common electrical network. Business customers should agree in a timely manner with the electricity trader on the sale of all the energy transferred to the network. When households start electricity generation, they automatically become participants of the net payment system, but they may also refuse this status and agree with their electricity trader on the sale of energy produced and transferred to the network.
Net payment system
Important preliminary works
1. Determine the most suitable capacity.
2. Select a certified generating unit.
