Installing solar energy in your community is possible. And it also generates certain benefits not only at an environmental level -which also-, but also towards the community owners themselves. After years raising some controversies around it, these are the current possibilities to be able to save you some other community fee.
If you are the owner of a flat or home, it is very likely that you will have to face several expenses related to the neighborhood. For this reason, the option of proposing self-consumption through solar energy in your community is especially valuable.
What requirements are missing to install solar panels in a community of neighbors?
Availability of an adequate common area: It is essential to have a large enough common area in the community to install the solar panels. In addition, this area must be optimally located to make the most of the available solar energy. The orientation, inclination and shading of the place are important aspects to consider to guarantee optimal performance of the photovoltaic system. Same electricity distribution center, and this must be in low voltage. This ensures correct integration of the solar generation system with the electricity grid and avoids technical or legal complications. According to current regulations, this distance cannot exceed 500 meters. It is important to consider this limitation when planning the location of solar panels and power distribution. The first fourteen digits of the cadastral reference must be common. This is necessary to ensure the correct billing and measurement of the energy generated and consumed in the collective solar self-consumption system.
Factors to take into account to install solar energy in your community:
Before embarking on a collective solar self-consumption project, it is essential to carry out a thorough evaluation of the technical and economic feasibility.
This involves analyzing the orientation of the building, the available area on the roof or the facades for the installation of solar panels, as well as the amount of electricity consumed by the community.
In addition, the costs of installation, maintenance and possible long-term savings must be calculated. This evaluation will make it possible to determine if the investment is profitable and if solar self-consumption is an appropriate option for the community.
Vote collection among community members
Likewise, the installation of solar energy in your community through the placement of panels must be voted on and obtain a community consensus in favor. That is to say: A majority of votes in favor is needed to carry out this project.
In addition, all owners will be beneficiaries of the installation as well as responsible for the payment obligations thereof. It should be noted that the owners who voted against will not be able to participate in this reform later. Therefore, they will continue to face common expenses in electricity.
New sustainable neighborhood communities
From there, installing solar power in your community can be a great option. With this you will not only be able to save costs, but you will also enjoy much more precise energy efficiency.
With this mode of consumption, an era opens in which neighboring communities can be much more responsible and autonomous with the energy costs that they usually consume. Furthermore, the sustainability argument becomes much more important as time passes.
