On September 6, at the Government meeting, the procedure for calculating average weighted tariffs for heat energy from gas was approved by the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine.
This decision is necessary for the proper implementation of the Law of Ukraine of 21.03.2017 №1959-VIII, which introduces a stimulating tariff for heat from alternative sources (http://zakon2.rada.gov.ua/laws/show/1959-19).
According to the Law, heat producers from alternative sources of energy will receive:
- the legislative level is clearly set at a rate of 90% of the tariff for gas heat,
- in the absence of it - at the level of 90% of the average weighted tariff for heat from gas.
Government approval of the specified order allows the State Agency for Energy Efficiency to calculate weighted average tariffs. In turn, local governments will be able to set incentive tariffs for heat from alternative sources at guaranteed legal level.
Thanks to the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation of Ukraine and the Government of Ukraine for the adoption of this ultra-powerful subordinate act! Without it, the law would work only on the half.
