Solar Energy rebates extended

Energy/Infrastructure

After the revolution that generated in public opinion the proposal to establish a charge to customers who install solar panels for self-consumption, the National Authority of Public Services (ASEP) decided to extend the period of consultations for 60 days.

The initiative for additional charging (for energy demand) to residential customers installing solar panels was raised last week at a public hearing at ASEP, as part of the process to discuss the new rate.

The consultation period will begin as of the entity issuing a resolution in which it calls another process, only to deal with the proposal for charging self-consumption clients. “It is intended to receive opinions and be able to evaluate them,” the administrator of the regulatory entity, Roberto Meana , reported yesterday.

The initial proposal was presented by the ASEP in the context of the tariff review of electricity distribution companies ENSA and Edemet Edechi (Unión Fenosa) , which will be in force from 2022 to 2026.

Each client has an estimate of energy consumption that is self-sufficient with the installation of solar panels. If at any time self-generation is insufficient, the consumer has the possibility of using the national energy distribution network. Distributors must have energy available, even if the customer does not use it, and it is because of that available energy that the rate is to be applied.

Torrijos brings up topic of “electricity” compliance as major election point.

I wonder if the operation of a “business” that has been run for 20 years without the necessary concession to sell utility services will be looked at?  Or does Bocas del Toro not exist in this regard?  https://www.laestrella.com.pa/panama/politica/torrijos-califica-como-un-desastre-el-servicio-de-energia-electrica-KF6557084   The candidate raised the urgent need to supply water to Panamanians …
