The Cabinet of Ministers made changes to PSO

The government approved the resolution “On Amendments to the Regulation on PSO for Electricity Market Participants to Ensure Public Interest in the Process of the Electricity Market Functioning”. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Energy.

The share of electricity that NNEGC Energoatom will sell through PSO has been reduced from 80% to 50-55%. For Ukrhydroenergo, this share has been reduced from 35% to 30%. Accordingly, the share of electricity that companies will be able to sell under bilateral agreements and in other market segments on competitive terms is increasing.

The sale will be carried out in the volumes required to meet the needs of household consumers in the IPS of Ukraine trade zone (about 50-55% of the projected volume of electricity supply by SE NNEGC Energoatom). The rest of the electrical energy of SE NNEGC Energoatom, it will be able to sell in different market segments on competitive terms.

 - the obligatory share of sales of Ukrhydroenergo within the framework of PSO has been reduced from 35% to 30%. The enterprise will also be able to sell the rest of the electrical energy in different market segments on competitive terms.
