The Plan includes the following categories of investments:
Photovoltaic systems (PV), RES systems, Autonomous RES systems and Photovoltaic systems (PV).
The implementation period is until 20/12/2021 or until the available budget is used up, whichever comes first.
Category A : Photovoltaic systems (PV) connected to the grid by the method of net – metering
Beneficiaries of Category A are all electricity consumers.
The maximum power of each PV system that can be installed is 10.4 kW per electricity bill.
The PV systems can be installed on the roof of legally erected premises or on the ground within the same plot where the legal premises are located and / or adjacent plots with the premises they will serve.
Category B : RES systems connected to the network by the method of net -billing .
Beneficiaries of Category B are all electricity consumers.
The maximum power of each RES system that can be installed under Category B is 8MW per electricity bill.
RES systems can be installed on the roof of legally erected premises or on the ground within the same plot and / or adjacent plots with the premises they will serve.
Category C : Autonomous RES systems not connected to the network .
Beneficiaries of Category C are all electricity consumers
Autonomous RES systems can be installed according to the needs of the consumer, without limitation to the maximum power of each system.
Category D : Photovoltaic systems (PV ) connected to the grid by the method of virtual net -metering
Beneficiaries of Category D are domestic consumers and professional farmers.
PV systems are installed in a location different from the property being serviced.
The electricity produced by a PV system is offset by the electricity imported from the grid (consumption / account) of a single residential unit or agricultural establishment, located in a different area from the PV system.
The maximum power of each PV system that can be installed is:
*for household consumers 10.4 kW per electricity bill
*for professional farmers 20 kW per electricity bill.
In Categories A, B and D, the annual electricity produced by the RES system that will be installed, can not exceed 90% of the annual electricity consumption of the facility that will serve.
The provisions regarding the surplus electricity in the category of net-metering / virtual net-metering and the cash surpluses in the category of net-billing have been amended so that they are not deleted . to the last account of a twelve-month period, but transferred for use in the next invoicing period (next month or two months).
Submission of Applications
The applications are submitted to the local Regional Offices of the Distribution System Operator (DSD – EAC).
Those interested can obtain applications in printed form from the Distribution System Operator (DSD-EAC) and in electronic form from the website https://www.eac.com.cy .
The receipt of applications for Categories A, B and D will end on 20.12.22 or earlier if the maximum available capacity of each category is completed per year or if otherwise decided by the Minister of Energy, Trade and Industry.
