The Serbian government has decided not to increase the surcharge paid by electricity consumers through electricity bills to fund the feed-in tariff scheme for privileged power producers. As a result, the surcharge will remain unchanged at RSD 0.093 per kWh in 2019.

The feed-in tariff surcharge is calculated by multiplying the surcharge amount with the measured amount of active electricity consumed by the end-customer each month, expressed in kWh. The surcharge is paid by all electricity consumers through electricity bills.

The privileged producers of electricity are those producing energy from renewable energy sources, including small hydropower plants (SHPPs), solar power plants, wind farms, and biogas power plants.

Funds raised from the surcharge are also used to cover the costs of balancing the production of electricity delivered by the privileged electricity producers,a service carried out by public power utility Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS).

The surcharge was introduced in 2013 and is regulated by the decree on the amount of the special fee for the promotion of privileged electricity producers in 2019.
