The national development and reform commission (NDRC) has issued a notice on the use of price leverage to promote the healthy development of the photovoltaic industry


The development and reform commission and price bureau of the provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the central government:

To give full play to the positive role of price lever to guide resources optimization, promote the healthy development of photovoltaic industry, according to the state council on promoting the healthy development of photovoltaic industry several opinions (guo fa [2013] no. 24) the relevant requirements, decided to further perfect the photovoltaic power generation project price policy. The relevant matters are hereby notified as follows:

1. Price of photovoltaic power station

(1) according to the conditions and construction costs of solar energy resources, the country is divided into three types of solar energy resources, and the electricity price of the benchmark of photovoltaic power station shall be formulated accordingly. The electricity price standard of pv power station in each resource area is shown in the attachment.

(2) the electricity price of the photovoltaic power station is higher than that of the local coal-fired unit, which is subsidized by the renewable energy development fund.

2. The price of distributed photovoltaic power generation

(1) for distributed photovoltaic power generation according to the whole electricity subsidy policy, feed-in tariff standard is 0.42 yuan per KWH (including taxes, similarly hereinafter), through renewable energy development fund shall be paid, by the power grid enterprise turn pay; Among them, the distributed photovoltaic power generation system USES the power of the Internet, and the power grid enterprise shall purchase the electricity price according to the local coal-fired unit.

(2) the free electricity consumption of distributed photovoltaic power generation system shall be exempted from the various funds and additional charges levied on the electricity price, as well as the system reserve capacity fee and other related parallel connection service fees.

3. Execution time

Partition feed-in tariff policy applies benchmarking in September, 2013, 1 record (approved) in the future, and put on record before September 1, 2013 (approved) in 2014, but after January 1, and operation of photovoltaic power station project; The price subsidy standard applies to distributed photovoltaic projects other than the central financial investment subsidy.

4. other provisions

(1) The photovoltaic power generation projects that enjoy the subsidies of the state shall conform to the development plan of renewable energy and meet the investment approval procedures of fixed assets and relevant regulations.

(2) The photovoltaic power generation project will carry out the standard of the standard of electricity price or electricity price, which is 20 years in principle. Countries according to the development of photovoltaic power generation, the change of the scale, cost factors, such as gradually lowered photovoltaic power station a feed-in tariff benchmarking and distributed photovoltaic electricity price subsidies standards, to promote scientific and technological progress, reduce costs, enhance the competitiveness of photovoltaic power generation market.

(3) Encourage the adoption of bidding and other competitive means to determine the subsidy standard for PV power grid or distributed photovoltaic power generation price, but the price of electricity and price subsidy formed through competition shall not be higher than the standard of GB and GB tariff.

(4) The power grid enterprises should actively provide the necessary grid access and metering and other grid services for the photovoltaic power generation projects, and timely set the electricity price with the photovoltaic power generation enterprises according to the regulations. At the same time, to timely measurement and audit of photovoltaic power generation projects and electricity generation, and accordingly apply for electricity subsidies.

(5) Photovoltaic power generation enterprises and power grid enterprises must accurately and completely record and save the photovoltaic power generation project electricity consumption, spontaneous power consumption, electricity price settlement and the amount of subsidies and other information, to accept the relevant departments of supervision and inspection. Fraud fake as the price of illegal acts to be investigated.

(6) price authorities at all levels to strengthen the implementation of photovoltaic power generation tariffs and electricity subsidies to subsidize the settlement, to ensure that the implementation of photovoltaic power generation policy in place.
