Reports and indicators
In order to generate electricity for your own consumption, you have the opportunity to install a micro-generator in the existing connection and connect it for parallel operation with the electrical network. The micro-generator connection is a service used by both households and business customers (e.g. farms) that choose to generate electricity from renewable sources, thus reducing the amount of electricity received from the electrical network. To ensure that the operation of the micro-generator does not interfere with the electrical network, it is imperative to secure the approval for its installation from Sadales tīkls.
A micro-generator is a machine used for generating electricity and the related equipment (inverter), which is designed for AC electricity generation of 1-phase or 3-phase voltage with the operating current of up to 16A (amperes). It corresponds to a power of 3.7 kW in a 1-phase electrical network and 11.1 kW in a 3-phase network. Micro-generator parallel operation mode provides two-way exchange of electricity between the user’s electrical installation and the electrical network (electricity may flow both from the electrical network to the user’s electrical installation and in the opposite direction). Micro-generator equipment is not designed for electricity generation for commercial purposes; it is intended only for the production of electricity for one’s own needs.
Microgenerator connection implementation process
The NET payment system is applied to payments for the electricity generated and consumed by the household within the existing connection. What does it mean?
