Moroccan Government adopts bill encouraging self-production of electric energy
The Moroccan Government Council has adopted a bill relating to the self-production of electric energy.
The bill, presented by the Minister of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development, Leila Benali, during the Government Council held Thursday, adapts the legislative and regulatory framework governing the self-production of electric energy.
It aims, in particular, to regulate the activity of self-production of electrical energy for self-consumption purposes, whatever the source of production, the nature of the network, the level of voltage or the capacity of the electricity supply. The installation used needs to ensure the security of the national electricity network and be in compliance with the principles of transparency and non-discrimination between the various stakeholders.
This bill is based on a number of fundamental principles, including the right for any natural or legal person under public or private law to benefit from the status of self-producer, with a few exceptions, in accordance with the principle of neutrality.
Likewise, this bill provides for three systems that regulate self-production in the event of connection to the electricity networks (declaration system, connection approval system and authorization system), as well as control measures.
