All the produced electric power is going to the mains of PPC and the producer is paid by PPC with 49,5 cents per Kwh (0,495 €/kwh).
The price is guaranteed for 25 years. The producers continues to buy electric power from PPC and pays it on today’s price (approx. 10-12 cents per kwh), while PPC installs a new meter that records the produced by the photovoltaic power.
For example, if during the two months the photovoltaic installation produces electrical power that values 300 € and consumes electrical power that values 100 €, a charge account of 200 € will be credit to the photovoltaic owner.
