Morocco proposes law to allow individual generate electricity
London, Nov. 25, 2020 (AltAfrica)-In Morocco, the authorities are currently drafting the law governing self-generation of electricity by actors not involved in traditional electricity supply activities.
Once adopted, it will allow any natural or legal person to self-produce energy.
The law will allow any natural or legal person with a meter to become a self-producer, with the exception of those already involved in the supply of energy services to the network.
According to Hespress, who obtained a copy of the document, the law is an inclusive one which includes all stakeholders like the Ministry of Energy, the National Office of Electricity and drinking water, the Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy, the National Authority for Electricity Control and the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises.
“The autoproducer can produce electrical energy at the same consumption site as it can also produce at different places from other consumption sites, and in this case it has the right to access the electricity networks in order to to deliver the energy produced from production sites to consumption sites, ” says the bill according to Hespress .
The use of the network will be chargeable for autoproducers who will use it.
A regulatory text will be drawn up after the adoption of the law to determine the practical methods such as the calculation of the energy that can be injected into the network in the event of a surplus and under what conditions.
