What is Net Metering?

It is the offsetting of the energy produced and consumed and enables the consumer to cover a large part of the energy he consumes while at the same time giving the possibility to use the network as a means of storing the energy produced by the photovoltaic system. The net metering program is based on the difference between consumed and produced energy over a period of one year. In the event that there is an excess of energy, it is offset within the year and returned to the consumer for use in the following months. If for example there is a surplus of energy in the summer and the user has a heat pump where he uses it for heating in the winter months, then the surplus energy produced from the months with a lot of sunshine (spring, summer) will be able to consume it in the winter. 


The average annual electricity production from a photovoltaic system for Macedonia is 1500kWh/kWp, +/- 10% depending on the installation area and environmental conditions. Therefore the annual energy production of a 10kWp photovoltaic system is: 10kWp* 1500kWh/kWp = 15,000 kWh




PV system cost and payback

Typically, the cost of a photovoltaic system for a residential consumer is around €1,500.00/kWh and includes what is required for installation (Photovoltaic panels, inverters, supports, cables, etc.), the required studies and transport. Therefore, an indicative construction cost of a 5 kWp photovoltaic system will cost around 7500 euros. If we consider that the cost per kilowatt-hour of PPC is an average of 0.13 euros, there will be a profit of 975 euros per year with the final result that the payback of the investment, through energy savings and offsetting, will take place in 7.7 years (€7,500 / €975 that will be saved annually).

Supporting documents for net metering application

In order to submit the necessary documents to DEDDIE, the title deeds or the lease of the property and the written confirmation from the other co-owners - if they exist - that they agree and allow the installation of a photovoltaic system are required. The supporting documents required by the interested party for the application are listed below:

• Photocopy of ID
• Title deed (copy of notarial deed and certificate of its transfer to the mortgage registry) of the property corresponding to the consumption facility
• Recent copy of electricity bill from PPC or other provider

After the presentation of the above supporting documents, a responsible declaration will be prepared and should be issued via gov.gr with the taxis codes of the applicant. The supporting documents are delivered by hand or sent to the email address info@afoi-tsakaloudi.gr
