Starting from May 9, 2023, the National Regulatory Commission allowed both household and non-household electricity consumers to sell surplus electricity.
Electricity produced by a generating facility or an energy storage facility can be sold. The seller can sell energy to anyone under a free contract and at a negotiated price.
“This decision will help to expand competition in the retail electricity market and is aimed at developing distributed generation and ensuring the green transformation of the energy sector,” the regulator said.
The innovation, which was adopted against the backdrop of a possible increase in electricity tariffs for households and projected summer blackouts, should create competition in the energy market and may become an additional source of income for Ukrainians. It may also encourage Ukrainians to develop green energy, such as solar and wind power plants, more actively.
