"Green" tariff - the cost of electricity for private households producing electricity from solar energy by electric energy objects installed on roofs and / or facades of private households (houses, buildings, structures). It enables not only to use its own solar power plant, but also to earn extra money.
In Ukraine, the "green" tariff is regulated by the Law "On Electricity", as well as by the relevant decree of the National Commission, which carries out state regulation in the field of energy and utilities (hereinafter - NCCREC).
The procedure for selling, accounting and calculating electricity produced from energy from solar energy by objects of electric power (generating installations) of private households is approved by the decision of NKREKP № 170 dated 27.02.14, with subsequent changes, approved by the resolution of the NCCREC No. 229 dated 02.25.16 .
The size of the current "green" tariff can be monitored on the NKREKP website.
