Also, the Verkhovna Rada registered a draft law “On Amendments to Article 9-1 of the Law of Ukraine “On Alternative Energy Sources” dated May 27, 2019 No. 1033 by deputies Oleksii Ryabchyn and Victoria Voytsitska concerning generating installations of private households.

The draft law is trying to solve the problem that arose due to the abolition of the permission for the location of generating units of households on the land and the uncertainty of the newly introduced term “capital construction”, which makes it impossible to obtain a “green” tariff previously established for private households already operating solar stations located on the ground.

The draft law introduces new categories of generating solar installations of private households for which the “green” tariff applies: those with an installed capacity of up to 10 kW and established the “green” tariff rate for this category at the current level and from 10 to 50 kW without specifying their location and setting for them the “green” tariff rate below for 20% from January 1, 2020.
