EDP Portugal solar power -Energy Services for your home. The EDP comercial is one of the PV modules suppliers in Portugal. The most significant electricity Compagnie can install photovoltaic systems for your home. With some rules to obey its an excellent start to making green energy.
Have lower CO2 emissions and help Portugal to become carbon free!
Therefore, enjoy the beautiful sun and produce green energy with your PV installation. The national distribution energy supplier ( edp distribuição ) of Portugal continental would like to help you with this. Providing authorised electricity to the grid requires a few rules. If you choose your local supplier, and there the installation installed, the same regulation has to be applied.
In 2015 a different regime for Small Production (UPP) and Self-consumption Units (UPAC) came into force. There are common regulations and certain particularities for UPACs and UPPs. UPPs can have an installed capacity of up to 250 kW, whereas UPACs can have an installed capacity between 200 W and more than 1 MW.
UPPs and UPACs being connected to the grid require a prior registration on SERUP (Electronic Registration System). Then, SERUP issues a receipt (including a registration number as well as the data and time of the registration) to proceed with the payment of a registration fee. The registration fee must be paid within a time frame of 10 days and varies from € 30 up to € 750, depending on the installed capacity. Read more in depth about it here ( pdf download)!
The social tariff in Portugal is with a contracted power up to 2.3 kVA and an annual consumption not exceeding 400 kWh!

To convert the number of kVA from your contract to the number of kW that you can produce with your panels is fairly easy. Likewise, multiply the number of kVA by 0.8. The result is then the amount of kW.
It will be clear that the smallest user option one is the most attractive. For the other users, option two will be the most beautiful. A system that produces on average equal to the consumption.

How much CO2 emissions do green panels accurately compensate?
For example, PV collectors are the equivalent for non CO2 emissions. It is sometimes said that one photovoltaic panel generates energy with the equivalent of a specific value of CO2 emissions. Companies also dare to show this when they place a large park of pv panels at their branches. Those PV collectors then correspond to a certain amount of CO2 that the company would have emitted if they had not installed photovoltaic cells.
Therefore, we can assume that 1 square meter of solar panel compensates for emissions of approximately 685 kg of CO 2 during its lifetime. 685 kilos of CO 2 corresponds to a car travelling 4,600 km. So this is entirely worth the effort. You can also imagine how much a company that places a large park on solar panels saves on CO2 emissions.
