The YPERION Energy Community has completed the licensing process for the first 500KW photovoltaic plant in Corinth. The project is in the construction stage and will utilize the virtual energy offset model (Government Gazette 759B/5.3.2019).
This particular model enables the energy community to build a collective photovoltaic station and each member gets a percentage of it - depending on the energy needs they want to meet at home or in their business.
The energy produced is not sold, but is offset against the energy consumed and the user only pays the difference (in case he consumes more than he produces) or pays nothing (in case he produces as much as he consumes or more). Note that this refers to the energy we consume (cost of supply including any extraordinary surcharges such as adjustment clauses) and not to the remaining charges on the account (eg network fees, ETMEAR, YKO, etc.) which we continue to pay .
