Little by little we are getting used to using the word self-consumption. The use of clean and sustainable energies and the ever-increasing supply of batteries, accumulators and other solutions to generate energy, has encouraged many solar panels to opt for this system.
And now it is the energy company Endesa that is trying to offer a solution for those users who are interested in getting on board with solar self-consumption. To do it, has launched what they have come to call “virtual battery” on the market.
A virtual energy and euro wallet
This is a solution designed for those homes that have installed photovoltaic panels for self-consumption and who want to take advantage of all the energy they generate, even what they have not needed and have not used. As Endesa explains on its website, it is “a much more practical alternative with which to store the surplus energy produced by solar panels.”
Endesa has launched this proposal under the name “Solar Simply with virtual battery”. It is a service free that does not have any type of registration or maintenance cost.
With this modality, A single price is paid as a tariff for all the energy consumed from the networkregardless of the time slot, with the aim of maximizing the compensation of surpluses.
What this system does is make it easier for the client to better manage the kWh discharged into the network by their installation and be able to take advantage of 100% of surplus energy generated by solar panels.
What these virtual batteries do is store the money derived from the sale of surpluses generated for the solar panels and allow the user to opt for that balance whenever they want.
The virtual battery is connected to the home’s photovoltaic panels to store and conserve surplus contracted electrical energy. They work as a kind of virtual wallet in which you can accumulate balance and then what has not been compensated in your monthly bill It can be applied to the next invoice and thus lower the figure. Depending on the amount of “energy” in the form of a balance, the amount of a bill can reach zero euros.
These virtual batteries can work and adapt to both new installations that are going to be carried out as well as photovoltaic panels already installed and they become one more possibility that is added to physical batteries or the discharge of excess energy into the network.
