There are 8,641 households, multi-apartment buildings, small businesses and energy communities in Slovenia with devices for self-consumption of electricity from renewable sources, according to a report by balkangreenenergynews.com.

Amid changes in regulations and low costs of renewable energy equipment, the number of electricity production systems for self-consumption in Slovenia jumped to 8,641 in 2020 from 4,684 in 2019. The country's Energy Agency said in its annual report that the capacity surged to 103 MW from 52 MW.

Almost all the units in the category are PVs (photovoltaics). Their number almost doubled in 2020, from 4,664 to 8614. An average self-consumption system, or self-sufficiency system, as it is officially called in Slovenia, has 11.9 kW (kilowatt) in capacity. There are only 24 devices that use a water source and just three running on wind.
