Abstract—The main objective of this study is to analyze the photovoltaic generation of electric energy by the consumer and to show possible energy management of his consumption. Different kinds of tariffs depending on the hour of use and system capacity are analyzed. In addition, it is intended to show the benefits of the renewable energy of micro photovoltaic plants in residences, combined with practices of a better energy use through equipment/materials more intelligent/efficient, in other words, the possibility of a demand side management. In this way, initially it was listed the chances to promote the energy-efficiency by the analyses of the technology availability and a more efficient use of equipment. This study aims the development of residential projects that contemplate energetic optimization since its creation and enable the consumer to manage his consumption according with his priority in energy use. It is also taken into consideration the possibility to attend part of the consume using photovoltaic solar generation and the different values of energy tariff. For this, it was conducted a comparative study that verified the photovoltaic solar microgeneration technical-economic viability in residential dwellings considering the option of “Time-of-use Tariffs”, that can provide to the residential consumer a better management on the use of electric energy and implies changes in consumption habits.

Index Terms—Microgeneration, conventional tariff, time-of-use tariff.
