Distributed generation and kW demand collection

Distributed generation and kW demand collection

There is a conflict (veiled, in the best Brazilian style) involving notably solar energy projects and charging (or not) kW demand, when the local grid is used.

Solar energy entrepreneurs/customers seek to characterize their projects in such a way as to escape demand collection.

But, who is right?

It's simple and easy. If the use of the grid is of interest (net metering) then it has value. And accordingly should be remunerated.

What is the challenge?

As long as this matter is not settled with balance, it is all "others" who pay for the benefits that entrepreneurs/clients get. Because there is an amortization cost (grid) involved.
