The Unlicensed Electricity Generation Regulation was amended by
the Regulation on Amending the Unlicensed Electricity Generation
Regulation, which was published in the Official Gazette on 23 March
2016 ("Amendment Regulation"). The
Amendment Regulation has introduced a variety of significant
changes, ranging from the allocation of capacity to restrictions on
share transfers. To list a few of the modifications, with the
Amendment Regulation, when wind and solar plants (which may
generate electricity without a license) are concerned, a maximum of
1 MW capacity may be allocated to real and legal entities from the
same group of companies at each transformer center, irrespective of
the number of consumption facilities, which brings a significant
restriction. The Amendment Regulation also provides limitations on
the air and project distance between an unlicensed electricity
generation plant and the transformer, based on the installed
capacity of the said plant. The two preceding limitations on MW
capacity and distance will not pertain to applications, which have
been announced on the web page of the network operator (and which
have the right to obtain a call letter) as of 23 March 2016. It is
also important to note that with the changes in the Amendment
Regulation, shares of wind and solar generation companies (which
may generate electricity without a license) may not be transferred
until the relevant generation plant's temporary acceptance.
Otherwise, the relevant call letter would be cancelled.
Accordingly, the Regulation on Amending the Unlicensed Electricity
Generation Regulation now restricts the transfer of shares of the
relevant companies before the temporary acceptance.
