|Renewable Energy Description:|
The Decree introduces a number of reforms to regulate different aspects of renewable energy deployment in El Salvador.
Net metering is available for small scale renewable energy self-generators (who are defined as those who consume at least 70% of their generation). The Decree 80, along with Accord 120, stipulates that during renewable energy auctions a tranche of capacity will be reserved for self-producers, and offered to them after the auction has been awarded. Self-producers can enter into a contract to sell their excess generation at the price resulting from the auction. To access this modality, self-producers must have a bidirectional meter with net energy balanced on a monthly basis.
