ELECTRIC COMPANY

The electric company is linked to the theme of consumption tax "excise tax" that is applied at the time electricity consumption is produced for own use.

PREMISE

All photovoltaic plants exceeding 20 kW must have obtained from the territorial competent CUSTOMS AGENCY, the OPERATING LICENSE (*) (or COMPANY CODE). Some of these plants have the obligation to submit the ELECTRIC COMPANY REPORT.

(*) NOTE: The annual consumption declaration is obligatory for all photovoltaic plants with POWER exceeding 20 kW even without the electric company regime.

DEFINITION OF ELECTRIC COMPANY

An electricity production plant using renewable energy (e.g. photovoltaic) with peak power exceeding 20 kW with a self-consumption > of 1% is considered an ELECTRIC COMPANY, called also electricity production company.

OBLIGATIONS OF THE ELECTRIC COMPANY OWNER

These plants must:

  • Report the opening of an Electric Company at the territorial competent 'CUSTOMS AGENCY office and obtain an operating license for a production company with the sale of excess electricity.
  • Pay the license fee annually to the territorially competent CUSTOMS AGENCY;
  • Fill in the production register, recording the daily meter reading (in some areas it is possible on a weekly or monthly basis);
  • Pay the excise tax on self-consumed energy;
  • Communicate any company changes within 30 days;
  • Submit the Annual Consumption Declaration(*) on the CUSTOMS AGENCY site

(*) NOTE: the annual consumption declaration is obligatory for all photovoltaic plants with POWER exceeding 20 kW, even without the electric company regime.

PHOTOVOLTAIC PLANTS NOT SUBJECT TO THE ELECTRIC COMPANY REPORT OBLIGATION

  • A plant of any peak power, which feeds all the energy produced into the grid, without self-consumption (if energy is not self-consumed, then the Excise duty is not applied);
  • A plant with power below 20 Kwp with self-consumption, but subject to the obligation of registering at the Customs Office of the competent territory.

PHOTOVOLTAIC PLANTS SUBJECT TO THE ELECTRIC COMPANY REPORT OBLIGATION

  • A plant with power exceeding 20 KW that feeds energy into the grid and self-consumes it. (the excise taxes are paid only for the amount of energy self-consumed, calculated by the difference between the energy produced and the energy fed into the grid)
