The list of issued permits (as of 30.06.2020.)
After receiving the permit from the Ministry of Economics, the electricity producer must apply to the distribution or transmission system operator in accordance with the procedure specified in the Public Utilities Commission Council Decision No. 1/6 of 22 February 2012 “System Connection Rules for Electricity Producers”. The system operator will issue technical regulations for the installation of the system connection.
After the commissioning of the power plant and connection to the electricity network, the electricity producer must register in the Register of Producers of the Public Utilities Commission if the power plant’s generation capacity is greater than 1 megawatt.
