SEU Efficient User Systems, an acronym and a definition difficult to decrypt immediately, sound like something complicated and bureaucratic. Often, however, these denominations hide some nice surprises or useful information to save and obtain benefits. That of SEU Efficient User Systems it's not really a relaxing reading topic but we might relax later when we discover the benefits.
SEU Efficient User Systems: what they are
SEU Efficient User Systems, together with SEEEU Equivalent Existing Systems to Efficient User Systems, they are Simple Production and Consumption Systems. Those who did not know anything before, still do not know so we see that in practice it is an electrical systems, connected directly or indirectly to the public network, aimed at transporting electricity. They are not used for transmission and / or distribution, but forself-supply of energy.
Usually i SEU Efficient User Systems they consist of a production plant and a consumption unit connected directly through a private connection without the obligation to connect to third parties and connected. Against the public network? They can be connected at least in one point but optionally, directly or indirectly.
To release i SEU Efficient User Systems is the GSE and once it has given us the okay, you can take advantage of discounted tariff conditions on the electricity consumed and not taken from the network.
SEU Efficient User Systems: advantages
As mentioned, and I won't let you wait until the end of the article, there are some very trivial advantages. Those with this qualification enjoy economic benefits at the t levelsubsidized self-consumed electricity. By self-consumed we mean what we have produced instead of taking it from the network.
In particular the advantages of the SEU Efficient User Systems concern the variable parts of the general system charges which for a couple of years have been linked to both electricity withdrawn and self-consumed to the extent of 5% (Article 24 of Law 116/14). About the payment of charges on self-consumed energy, it should also be noted that renewable plants exchanged on site below 20 kW are totally exempt from this.
SEU Efficient User Systems GSE
The GSE plays an essential role as regards the SEU Efficient User Systems, it is the reality that decides whether the systems of those who request them can be so qualified. To decide, it refers to a law, Annex A of Resolution 578/2013 / R / eel, which specifies a series of necessary characteristics.
For example they can be SEU Efficient User Systems one or more electricity production plants powered by renewable sources or in high-efficiency cogeneration, managed by the same producer connected to a consumption unit of a single final customer. It is also necessary that the system is in a single "compact" area and not interrupted or "patchy".
Efficient User Systems withdrawn
Obtained the qualification SEU Efficient User Systems, we will wonder if we can stop worrying or we can be revoked. Unless changes have been made to the system set-up, it remains, which means that we cannot significantly change production or consumption units or qualification requirements administrative or legal.
Efficient Photovoltaic User Systems
Photovoltaic systems can also be SEU Efficient User Systems and those incentivized in an all-inclusive tariff and with a premium tariff on self-consumption (V Conto Energia), not being in Exchange on the spot, even if with a power lower than 20 kW, are not exempt from paying 5% of the charges on self-consumed energy and not automatic qualification is envisaged as for on-site exchange systems.
That doesn't mean we have to raise the white flag, SEU Efficient User Systems there remains one card to play to get a lasting economic benefit.
SEU Efficient Systems of Denied Users
When we have our system evaluated to obtain the qualification from the GSE and we receive a "no" do not despair, it means that we do not have the required requirements and we are "stamped" as ASE, Other Existing Systems, or ASAP. ASAP is commonly used to say something else but in this case it is the acronym of Other Self-Production Systems.
Efficient User Systems prices
We do not require qualification as if we were playing the lottery because the GSE he will have to work on it and all this has its price. Not always, of course, because up to 3 kW the request for qualification is free, from 3 to 20 costs 50 €. If we make a change, we pay half the amount due for the qualification: for example € 25 for systems between 3 and 20 kW. There are many other specifics needed to understand the cost of other types of plants and for those over 20 kW for which the order of magnitude changes but all information can be found at the GSE.
