Chile introduces new rules that allow energy communities

The Chilean government has published new rules for distributed generation, self-consumption solar systems which include the option of creating energy communities. The provisions, which will come into effect on November 6, will introduce the possibility of systems with a generation capacity no larger than 300 kW to supply power for multiple consumers. Such energy communities will enable users to co-ordinate a shared PV array with a single grid connection to inject surplus power back into the electricity network.
