Photovoltaic systems: increase your level of self-consumption


How can you increase your level of self-consumption?


You decide how you want to use the solar power you generate. You can use it yourself (self-consumption), feed it into the public grid or use an energy storage system. However, the goal of all solar installation owners should be to increase their level of self-consumption instead of feeding the surplus electricity into the grid.


And this is for two good reasons:


  1. Electricity from the grid is becoming increasingly expensive
  2. The reimbursement for solar power is steadily decreasing


Self-generated solar power is currently up to CHF 0.12 per kilowatt hour cheaper than electricity from the grid. It is therefore advisable to use as much solar power as possible yourself instead of buying expensive electricity.
