Are you more of an "eco warrior" or a "manager"?
For Daniel Christnach, who works for the network manager Creos, this choice can be summarised by two approaches.
The first is financial. "Exporting to the grid guarantees a very attractive feed-in tariff. So if you only look at the figures, that's usually the option to choose,” he explains.
The other approach tends to be guided by environmental aspirations.
So, if you’re more of an 'eco-warrior', consuming electricity that we have generated ourselves is a real satisfaction, which more than makes up for any price difference.
Patrick Johanns, head of digital services at MyDiego, proposes a more pragmatic approach.
"The calculation needs to consider the cost of the installation, its power and the energy consumed. It’s a question of working out the return on investment for the two scenarios - export and self-consumption - in order to define the solution that works best for you.”
Don’t hesitate to contact the agency MyDiego - a company created by Enovos and the Fédération des Artisans du Luxembourg- to carry out this simulation. The same goes for MyEnergy - the state agency set up to promote renewable energy.
Having trouble deciding between self-consumption and resale? You can now choose to export your production into the grid and then switch to self-consumption.
