This production can be carried out in two ways:
Also called in situ or contiguous, this solution occurs when the generating center is located in the same place where the energy is consumed. Furthermore, there is no need to transport the electrical power.
When energy is produced in a different location than consumption. In this case, it is common to build wind or solar farms. Likewise, it is necessary to use the service of the local distributor to transport the energy to the consumer unit.
