21. April 2020. / SEE Energy News

According to the statement from the regulator, in view of the increased interest on the part of the individuals and legal persons who wish to obtain the status of prosumer in the conditions of the legislation in force, the Regulatory Committee approved the procedure regarding the connection to the electricity networks of public interest for the prosumers, which have electricity generation installations from renewable sources with the installed power of at most 27 kW per consumption point. Clear rules are implemented and simplified in order to streamline the process of connection to electricity networks of public interest for this category of users.The Regulatory Committee of the National Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE) has approved the order on the connection of prosumers to the electricity networks of public interest.

The procedure comes in support of individuals or companies who request the connection of a new point of consumption and production, the connection of these plants for the production of electricity at an existing point of consumption, as well as the certification of the quality of a prosumer.

At the same time, shorter durations have been set for the connection stages so that the process runs as quickly as possible, given that the access to the network for distribution of electricity produced from renewable energy sources must be carried out, as a matter of priority, to the extent that the safety of the national electricity system is not affected.

It was also considered the legal obligation of the network operators to make available to any new energy producer from renewable sources that wishes to connect to the system, reasonable and precise terms for receiving and analyzing the connection request to the electricity grid, as well as a reasonable guidance timetable for any proposed connection to the network.
