Without the need for an initial investment or space for installation of solar energy capture equipment, any interested party has the opportunity to participate in the production of this type of clean and renewable energy and to benefit from savings in their monthly electricity bill. Those associated with the project benefit from cheaper energy than that supplied by traditional distributors. This business model is regulated by ANEEL normative resolution 687/15.

  • Compensation system or the option of shared solar energy generation allows a company to receive the credits of a renewable energy project to which it is associated. Each unit (kilowatt-hour or kWh) of electricity generated by the solar condominium is deducted from the participant’s energy bill on a one-to-one basis.
  • Tax exemption, federal and state governments as exemption from ICMS, PIS and COFINS, reduce the cost of installing a solar power generation system.
