What is an Energy Community for?

Monday 9 November 2020

An Energy Community aims to provide electricity from renewable sources to all participants according to specific needs, with the aim of maximizing local collective self-consumption. If you have a photovoltaic system, you can give energy that you do not consume to all the other participants, but at the same time receive it at times when you cannot produce enough. If you have only the storage battery you can buy the energy from others to store it for any eventuality and resell it when you don’t need it. If you are a simple consumer, the energy community gives you the opportunity to buy clean energy without having to invest in a generation plant, while at the same time being more aware of the purchase of energy and its cost.
