How to block its photovoltaic purchase rate?
In order to block your purchase price for your solar project, you must make a connection request with ERDF.
Generally, your installer will do it for you.
Once your rate is blocked for your installation, it will not budge for 20 years.
We advise you to block it as soon as possible in order to benefit from the best possible rate.
