Draft law No. 10318 – whose aim is to amend the laws on the electricity market and on alternative energy sources – has been registered in the Verkhovna Rada. Among the authors of the initiative, there is MP Lev Pidlisetskyi from the Samopomich Union faction.
First of all, this draft law postpones the introduction of a new model of the electric energy market for 3 months, that is, until October 1, 2019. This will make impossible the collapse of the system from July 1 this year.
Secondly, this draft law restores “green” tariffs for small household SPS (up to 30 kW), in particular, for already built stations. Thus, this corrects the mistake with “zeroing” the tariff for small home stations.
Consequently, the adoption of the draft law will help ensure the rights and legitimate interests of consumers who have installed or planned to install home solar power stations by the end of 2019.
In addition, the adoption of the draft law will give the National Commission for State Regulation in Energy and Utilities the ability to set price limits on segments of the new electric power market, which will reduce the risks of a significant uncontrolled rise in electricity prices during the first year after its opening.
The draft law No. 10318 has been submitted for consideration of the Committee on the Fuel and Energy Complex, Nuclear Policy and Nuclear Safety.
