For the first time in Armenia a fee will be set for the energy produced by solar power plant. So far solar energy hasn’t been sold. On July 16, 2015 the executive body made a decision suggesting The Public Services Regulatory Commission of the RA to give a license to “Hanni-Armine” LTD for the production of electricity of up to 2 MW capacity in a solar thermal turbine power plant designed by the company. According to the Government’s decision the fee for the electricity produced in the solar thermal turbine power plant mustn’t be more than that produced in wind power plants and a guarantee of 20 years must be given for the electricity purchase.
According to The Public Services Regulatory Commission of the RA by No 598 N decision made on November 30, 2007 the fee for the electricity supplied by the wind power plants is 31,343 dram/kWh without value added tax.
The material was developed in the frames of “Supporting reforms in the sector of small hydro power plants through enabling a dialogue between civil society and the Ministry of Nature Protection for sustainable use of river ecosystems” supported by UNDP/GEF Small Grants Programme".
