What does this accounting service option provide?

This accounting service allows energy flows to be distributed between a lead site and a hosted site (site en décompte) based on RTE’s meters.

If you are a lead site, this service allows you to differentiate energy flows corresponding to a hosted site.

If you are a hosted site, this service allows you to isolate your energy flows and the energy produced by your generation unit(s). Your flows will be assigned to the balance responsible party of your choice, which may be separate from the one chosen by the lead customer.

How do I subscribe?

  • Accept the CART update proposed by RTE, to take into account the new meters

  • Inform your balance responsible party of the subscription to the accounting service.
