  • No, it won´t. Because Solar energy is only produced during the day and is not stocked, you still need to buy electricity from your provider, at least for your night usage.

  • No. Contigo Energia´s offer does not include batteries. A decision was made to exclude it from the portfolio for now, having Contigo Energía considered batteries will become more accessible in the future and, thus, guaranteeing a faster return on investment. For this reason, Contigo Energía has already included a battery-compatible inverter, for those who are interested in investing in a battery in the future. In Portugal, you can inject electricity into the grid. Regarding information about the injection of electricity into the grid, this is part of the explanations provided by Contigo Energía to the customer, at a later stage of the buying process.

  • The amount of electricity you get from the system depends on a number of factors and therefore a simple answer can rarely be given.

Other factors affecting production are shading, temperature, soiling etc.
