The remuneration tariffs for green power have been specified on the basis of reference power plants for each technology and output category. Depending on the technology, remuneration is applicable for 20 to 25 years. In view of the anticipated technological progress and the increasing degree of market maturity of new technologies, the remuneration rates are subject to a gradual downward curve. The reductions only apply to new production facilities that are put into operation.
New facilities can be registered with the national network operator, Swissgrid. At present there is a waiting list for the registration of new production facilities. Information about the registration procedure can be found on the Swissgrid website.
