Energy micro and minigeneration in the state of Mato Grosso (MT) - Brazil, in 2015, almost three years after National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) regulation by the 482/12 resolution, was made up of only 12 projects. This number jumped to 116 projects in 2016, 74 of which in operation and 42 under implementation, a growth of almost 900% caused by the incentives that this mode of generation is receiving, especially photovoltaic generation. The state of Mato Grosso, after analysis
by the Sector of Mines and Energy Superintendence of Economic Development, was one of the first to exempt this type of generation from goods circulation tax, valid from 01/01/16. Currently, investment return or pay back time is calculated as low as 6 years, encouraging significantly development of the called “green economy” in the state. This article aims to analyze the billing of a consumer unit located in the city of Cuiabá - MT, Brazil, before and after the installation of a micro photovoltaic generation plant with On-Grid system, as well as the efficiency and quality of the electricity generated by it.
