Rules Relating to Renewable Energy Sources

PV solar system
Solar photovoltaic systems for tax purposes a so-called renewable energy. If one is connected to the grid, you must pay tax and tax on electricity production.

In recent bill on 19 November 2012, removed the so-called business system for private households. It is currently. Therefore, only the schematic model which, under the rules, can be used by individuals. However, there is no rule without exception, and for solar cells is that if you bought the plant by 19 November 2012, has registered facility to Energinet.dk before the turn of 2012/2013, and put the plant in operation by 1 March 2013, will be able to apply the business rules throughout the life. The method chosen can not be changed subsequently.

Use business rules can craftsman deduction is not used as it is reserved for private.
Likewise, if one has acquired the plant in legislative action 19th November 2012, to enroll in net meter system with its energy company, under the old rules, ie. settlement of consumption and production on an annual basis. The opportunity has been up to 20 years.
All solar systems purchased after 19th November 2012 settled under the new rules, ie. from hour to hour.

Net Metering system
Net Metering program is a settlement scheme for individuals who have a renewable energy generating systems installed. It may be a solar and / or a household wind turbine.
With net meter system produces energy when there is sun / wind. The energy produced is sent out on the network where it can be used by other consumers. With a popular expression, as stored energy on the grid until you need energy.
In practice your energy company installs a special electricity meter which contains several counters, so you can measure how much energy is drawn into the house and how much electricity is sent out on the network. Under the old regime settled this + / - accounts once a year. Under the new rules are settled once an hour.
Net Metering scheme is limited to 6 kWp (kilowatt peak = the maximum possible power output under optimum conditions) installed capacity of private and 6 kWp installed power per. 100 m2 of built area for non commercial buildings, such as. schools, day care centers and similar

6 kWp rule
The rule of the max 6 kWp installed capacity was clarified on 11 June 2012, the Treasury ruled that 6 kWp rule should be interpreted as the plant's power, so it is possible to install solar panels making up more than 6 kWp, as long as the inverter (inverter) may be limited to that emit more than 6 kWp.
At the 20th December 2012, the government adopted a new set of rules around net meter system, which eliminates the 6 kWp border completely, and permits net settlement under the new rules for systems up to 400 kWp. If you purchased a plant by 19 November 2012, will still, in a 20-year period, enter under the old rules with limit of 6 KWp if you want to use net meter system with years of settlement.

New rules for net metering
With legislative action on 19 November 2012, it is no longer possible to use the net meter system of settlement on an annual basis for plant purchased after that date. The new system allows only settlement on an hourly basis, and therefore not able to use the grid as a buffer, at no extra cost.
Any excess electricity production will, under the new solar rules sold to energy company at a fixed price of 130 cents per. kWh for systems installed in 2013. The rate per. kWh then decrease by 14 cents a year. Systems installed in 2014 will be 116 kr. kWh, while plants installed in 2018 and later, you get 60 cents per. kwh. oveskydende of energy.
The big difference between the old and the new system is that companies now can share in net meter system, and thus take advantage of the same rules as private and housing associations, with hourly billing and 130 kr. kWh for not immediately exercised power. While the new rules reduce the incentive to invest in solar power among private, open at the same time the possibility of energy companies, district heating systems, etc. can set up large facilities with the economies of scale benefits this brings.
