Energy companies want to fine-tune the changes in the Ordinance regulating electricity prices.

Electricity distribution companies, NEC and the photovoltaic association are generally in agreement with the changes in the Ordinance regulating the prices of electricity. The remarks relate to the refinement of texts which, however, concern different price components. They, in turn, affect the costs of companies. This was made clear during the discussion in the Energy and Water Regulatory Commission of the changes to the document. The report of the working group published earlier on the page of the Energy Regulator commented on the necessity of a change in the Ordinance regulating the electricity prices due to the recent changes in the Energy Act and the Renewable Energy Act.

In particular, changes are being made with the exit to the free market to producers from 1 to 4 MW of electricity from RES and high efficiency cogeneration of electricity and heat. In this connection and for this group of producers, the existing model of compulsory purchase of electricity produced from renewable sources and high efficiency production is eliminated.

The representative of the Photovoltaic Association Nikola Nikolov, for its part, made only one remark concerning the treatment of RES producers - once as producers with a dynamically changing generation, which only applies to solar and wind power, sometimes as regular producers, specifying that part of the costs are triggered in the system and asked for a refinement of the texts. He put the issue of real cost coverage, not mechanical for all, as this increases their access costs (by about 90%).
