The net metering agreement signed between the provider and the self-generator is for a 25-year term, starting from the date the connection with the photovoltaic system is activated.
In the event of a change in provider after the system’s activation, the net metering agreement with the previous provider is automatically terminated and a new net metering agreement is concluded between the self-generator and the new provider for the balance of the 25-year period.Similarly, if the contracting customer of the electrical installation changes, a new net metering agreement is concluded for the remaining time period.
Metering of electricity generated by the energy system and the incoming and outgoing energy from and to the grid is undertaken at the same time by the Hellenic Electricity Distribution Network Operator (DEDDIE), during the current metering cycle which applies to the self-generator’s electrical installation.
The provider applies net metering on the “actual” electricity bills, based on the consumption measured by DEDDIE, according to the metering cycle in effect. In the event that it is not possible to obtain a meter reading on the scheduled metering date, net metering will be applied when the next regular metering takes place.
Regulated charges are calculated as follows:
