How does an Energy Community work?

Monday 9 November 2020

An Energy Community works according to a small and decentralized energy model: the exchange of energy does not exploit the entire public grid, but only the low voltage section that connects the participants to the same community. This guarantees you the purchase of green and local energy at a price more advantageous than the market price, thanks to a system of incentives and the lowering of fixed transport charges that you find in your bill. In the same way, if you are a producer, being part of a community gives you the opportunity to sell your unconsumed energy at cheaper conditions than the state incentive mechanisms of transfer to the public grid.
