A regulation adopted in 2000 liberalises electricity production from small PV installations and fosters the implementation of the project "10,000 PV roofs" promoted by the Ministry of the Environment and ENEA (the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Environment). The regulation concerns local exchanges (purchase, sale) of electricity between the grid manager (Manager of the Electric Market, responsible for electricity transmission) and small autoproducers of electricity from photovoltaic plants of less than 20 kW of installed capacity. According to this regulation, the sale price of excess power to the grid is to be set equal to the purchase price from the grid, regardless of the time of the day and the season.
