Mandatory procurement and capacity components

Based on the government decision, a new procedure of calculation of the payment of the mandatory procurement components (MPC) enters into force from 1st of January 2018. 

Further on for all electricity consumers, total payment for the MPC will consist of two parts, where one will be fixed and the other will vary in proportion to electricity consumption.

The variable part (the mandatory procurement component) will be formed in proportion to consumed electricity - 0.01463 EUR/kWh (excluding VAT). 

The fixed part (the capacity component) depends on the voltage level of the electricity connection and the consumption group.

Voltage level Consumers' consumption group Capacity component unit Capacity component
0.4 kV lines A single phase connection with current value of inlet protection device up to 40A EUR/year 12,05
0.4 kV lines A three phase connection of all allowed loads EUR/A/ year 8,71
0.4 kV busbars A three phase connection with current value of inlet protection device up to 200A, inclusive EUR/A/ year 6,08
0.4 kV busbars A three phase connection with current value of inlet protection device from 201A up to 800A, inclusive EUR/A/ year 8,47
0.4 kV busbars A three phase connection with current value of inlet protection device from 801A EUR/A/ year 9,97
6-20 kV lines All allowed loads EUR/kW/ year 17,08
6-20 kV busbars All allowed loads EUR/kW/ year 22,31
110 kV lines Users whose borderline of ownership of electrical devices is on 110 kV lines EUR/kW/ year 5,46
110 kV busbars Users whose borderline of ownership of electrical devices is on 110 kV busbars EUR/kW/ year 6,51

Tariffs are given without VAT.
