Negative electricity price: Why?

In the Netherlands, more and more energy is being generated from sustainable sources such as wind and sun. This is a positive development. But sometimes, the amount of sustainable energy forecasted is so high compared to the demand that the prices turn negative. This means that you have to pay in order to produce.

→ If you do not turn off your solar installation at negative hourly prices, you will pay for the electricity you produce.

Benefits of automatic curtailment

By automatically turning off your solar panels, the efficiency of your installation increases. You no longer supply electricity when prices are negative.

By curtailing when needed, you contribute to keeping the grid in balance.

Your asset can respond to control signals. This is not only interesting for negative day-ahead prices, but also for other services.

The energy system of the future will require much more control of all installations. The grid operator will soon also want to intervene immediately in the event of acute congestion. This is called the Real-time interface legislation. With the Teleport solution, you are already prepared for this.
