Since February 2013 both Mini- and Microgeneration are subject to the same legislation, the DL 25/2013. The most important change, is the obligation of the local grid operator to buy the energy produced, regardless the supplier of the energy for consumption.
 
The only segment is microgeneration, with a maximum capacity of 3.68 kW (nominal inverter). Each consumer can install a system with a capacity of 50% of the capacity contracted for consumption. The production capacity is limited to 25% of the medium voltage transformer capacity.

 
Waiting Time
 
Active time
Most of the time is used as waiting time.
 
From the beginning of the year the legal authority defines a number of licenses to be issued during that year. The installers have some perspective of its availability. The waiting time to issue the license leads to the delay on the construction of the installation.

 
Legal-administrative Labour Requirements
 
Non Legal-administrative Labour Requirements
The amount of man-hours required matches the legal administrative requirements in all the stages of the process.

Other costs
Half of these costs correspond to the mandatory fees. The cost of the labour itself is considered to be reasonable by the clients.
 
The great majority of the costs are a consequence of interpretation of technical rules, which leads to changes to the initial project.
