In order to overcome environmental problems in coastal provinces and mega cities, the base electricity tariff from biomass technology will be increased two times.
Pursuant to Note (2) of paragraph 2-1 of the decree of the Minister of Energy, the step related to solar generators with a capacity of 100 kW and less is changed to 200 kW and less.
In addition, according to this paragraph, the maximum cash payment of invoices in each period is proportionate with SATBA's allocated budget. Apparently, the checkout of the remaining demand of the seller of renewable electricity in cash will be conditional on receiving the difference between the obligatory and cost price from the government or obtaining other allocated sources such as saved fuel credits, financial bonds, treasury documents, etc. At the same time, the debts will be registered in the government debt and information management system (SAMAD) and will be among the claims of the private sector from the government and this debt can be collected by common methods such as debt clearing with the government, saved fuel remittances, treasury documents, etc.
Another important point of this decree is clause 2-3, according to this clause, the amount of tariff for all power plants subject to this decree, except wind power plants, is subject to the application of a three-step reduction rate (after applying all coefficients) at the beginning of the eighth, twelfth and sixteenth years. This coefficient is equal to 60%. In the case of wind farms, the previous approvals will be followed.
It is worth mentioning that in order to encourage the applicants for the construction of a power plant with a capacity of more than 10 MW, SATBA, as before, periodically conducts tenders based on the new ceiling announced in the above-mentioned decree.
