Can you consume and produce electricity during the same hour in a solar energy plant?

For customers with micro-production facilities, the electricity production that we report is reduced by their household consumption. We report the “surplus electricity” delivered to the network via the electricity meter.

As both consumption and production numbers are measured instantaneously, it can sometimes happen that the customer is both buying and selling electricity during one and the same hour. Your consumption, for example, may be higher than your production during the first 15 minutes of an hour. During the last 45 minutes of the same hour, your production may be high enough to cover both your own consumption and still deliver electricity to the network.
