Renewables and energy efficiency department of the Ministry of Mining and Energy stopped the selection process for a share in the quota for temporarily preferential suppliers of power from small solar facilities. The statement on the ministry’s website adds that the slot of 50.5 kW had been open since mid-March for photovoltaic plants of up to 30 kW installed on roofs. This is when two legal entities lost the temporary status of a preferential supplier.

The document says that it was not possible to allocate the available share in the capacity to applicants from the March round, as many are registered to have filed for the slot at the same time, since there were several desks open in the office. The rule is that the status is given according to the timeline of applications, so the ministry announced another round for September 9, on one desk only.

The department said all applications filed before that day would be rejected.
