New Net Billing and Distributed Generation Law (Law 21.118)

Source: International Energy Agency
Last updated: 15 June 2021
This new law superseded the Law 20.571, raising the nominal capacity of self-generation Non Conventional Renewable Energy (NCRE) plants of regulated clients from 100kW to 300kW. It also allows users to transfer any surplus they have to another property of their own in the same utility area. Also, the discounts on the electricity bill now apply to all charges, not just the consumed energy tariff. Finally, now communities and joint properties (buildings, rural communities) can benefit from this scheme.
