PPC "freezes" the burden of consumers from the supplier fee imposed for the consolidation of the financing account of Renewable Energy Sources.

The measures include the imposition of an extraordinary amount levy 110 million. RES for electricity producers from RES and an equal burden on energy suppliers with the imposition of an extraordinary fee (PPC and competitors active in the market). PPC clarifies - through RES - that this charge will not be passed on to consumers.

The package of measures announced yesterday by RIS includes two parts:
-On the one hand, cash measures aimed at consolidating the account (ΕΛΑΠΕ) through which "green" energy producers are paid. According to official forecasts, if no action was taken the account would show a deficit at the end of the year 217 million. euros and multiplied in the coming years, resulting in delays or inability to pay RES producers. According to the competent Administrator (ΔΑΠΕΕΠ) The main reason for the deficit was the reduction in energy consumption due to the pandemic, which limited the revenues of RES units from the electricity market.
-Secondly, structural measures aimed at the participation of RES in the energy system on market terms. As noted by RIS, The central goal of the regulations is to increase the penetration of RES in the country in a controlled and controlled way, while at the same time to create the conditions for the widest possible use of the most successful and effective tool internationally., of the EU Target Model (Target Model).
PPC with recent statements of the president and managing director George Stassis was in favor of the integration of RES in the market, noting that now the renewable sources are completely competitive.
