Portuguese energy tariffs

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

I'm a PVSOL Premium user and I've been trying to use it in the most complete way possible. I think the software has a lot to explore and can offer a complete analysis in some cases but it is not yet prepared for the Portuguese electricity tariff system. In our legislation the electricity prices are set for 15 min intervals and PVSOL is only prepared for hourly tariffs. It would be very helpful if you include the 15 min tariffs intervals in future updates so we can provide a complete analysis using only one software.


I attached some images that show PVSOL vs Portugal's tariffs.

Dear Hugo,

thank you for the input. We already have this feature request on our list. For very regular time shifts by 15 minutes you could use this feature here:


But we know that this doesn't cover every tariff design (like yours for example). In order to estimate the cost effects of the 15 time shift, you could simulate it once with 0 minutes shift, and once again with 15 minutes. This should give you an idea of how the economics will behave.

Kind regards,
