ALGORITHM OF CALCULATIONS WITH ELECTRIC POWER PRODUCERS AT WEM
First of all, WEM makes settlements with those producers who use alternative energy sources, without restrictions both in terms of the power of power plants and in terms of the amount of electricity produced. The cost of such electricity is determined by the value of the "green" tariff, which is approved by NEURC.
Settlements for the supplied electricity in the WEM with all other producers are carried out according to the appropriate algorithm and at tariffs, which are also regulated by NEURC.
"Green" Tariff Law is in force in Ukraine. It sets premium rate of tariffs on electric power produced with use of alternative (renewable) energy sources, namely wind, solar, biomass, biogas, small hydro and geothermal.
"Green" tariff shall be valid till the year 2030.
"Green" tariff is determined by multiplication of the corresponding coefficient, set separately for every indicated energy source, and retail tariff on electric power for the second class of consumers as of 01.01.2009:
"Green" tariff is quarterly revised by the NEURC based on the average official NBU exchange rate of hryvnia to the euro in the 30 days before the date of the last NEURC session in the previous quarter.
