    Definition tariffs: PV generator power is given in PV*SOL® under STC conditions. The rates are calculated accordingly. The definition of generator output and tariff limits may differ due to different promotion guidelines or due to the grid operator’s own definitions.

    • Tariff zoning An averaged feed-in tariff is calculated for all output ranges up to the installed PV generator output. The entire PV generator output is first divided up between the individual feed-in connections or zones and then added up.

    • Graduation of tariffs With the graduated tariff, the feed-in tariff changes abruptly when a power limit is exceeded. This means that the feed-in tariff results directly from the installed PV output. Example Feed-in rate 1: from 0 kW ; 1 EUR/kWh Feed-in rate 2: from 30 kW ; 0,5 EUR/kWh PV generator power: 50 kWp Feed-in tariff paid out Tariff zoning: 0,8 €/kWh $ \left( \frac{30 \text{ kW}}{50 \text{ kWp}} \cdot 1 \text{ €/kWh} + \frac{20 \text{ kW}}{50 \text{ kWp}} \cdot 0,5 \text{ €/kWh} = 0,8 \text{ €/kWh} \right)$ Tariff graduation: 0,5 €/kWh

    1. Feed-in compensation Only the directly fed PV energy is reimbursed.

      Feed-in tariff: Feed-in compensation

    2. Self-consumption
      The PV energy generated that is not directly fed into the grid is taken into account. Charging of the battery is also considered as self-consumption. When you select Delivery, the values are not taken into account as revenues, but as costs.

      Feed-in tariff: Self-consumption

    3. Basic compensation The total PV energy generated is taken into account.

      Feed-in tariff: Basic compensation

United Kingdom: Total Installed Capacity (TIC) oder Declared Net Capacity (DNC)

TIC is the maximum DC power at average irradiation of the best month, with a clear sky and an optimal angle of inclination. The DNC is the TIC minus all losses up to the inverter as AC power. If these definitions are used, the tariff zones must be adjusted accordingly.
