Financing of additional costs

Energy supply companies are required by law to accept electricity from independent producers. This results in additional costs for these supply companies that arise from the difference between the guaranteed feed-in price of around 15 cents per kilowatt hour and the market-based purchase price. In order to relieve Energy supply companies and end consumers in regions with disproportionately high electricity feed-ins from independent producers, the financing of additional cost was introduced in 2005. Since 2009, no new plants are included in the subsidy.
