Tenant electricityTenant electricity is a win-win for property owners and tenants - the locally generated electricity lowers the additional costs and opens up an additional source of income for owners.

Since the amendment of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) in 2016, it has been possible to sell the electricity generated in one's own property to commercial or private tenants of the property. This electricity is exempt from individual levies and charges, which subsidises these models. This increases the value of the property and at the same time lowers the utility costs - and thus the total rent - of the tenants. At best, so much electricity is generated that tenants do not need additional electricity from the public grid. The electricity can be generated either with a combined heat and power unit in the basement or with an in-house solar system.

For this, however, a so-called tenant electricity model must be developed that takes all legal subsidy options into account. In addition, individually adapted metering concepts and legally compliant billing are required. There are various possibilities: either a property owner can be the plant operator himself or he finances it through a tenant electricity partner who operates and markets the plant - the options can also be combined. 

We are happy to support you in the implementation and operation of such an offer.
