What are the characteristics of an Energy Community according to Italian regulations?
To create an Energy Community you must be sure that it meets the criteria required by the legislation that came into force in 2020: – The members of a community must be connected to the public distribution network within the same medium/low voltage transformer booth. – The participants’ photovoltaic systems must have been activated after 1 March 2020 and may not exceed the individual power of 100kW and total power of 200kW. – The objective of the community must not be linked to economic profits, so revenues from the sale of energy cannot be the main source of income. – The attention of the community must be directed to the environmental, economic and social benefit for all, through the collective self-consumption of energy from renewable sources. – The sale of energy must be regulated by a private law contract.
