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. Through the application of a new financing mechanism, the financial burden on electricity supply companies and end consumers in regions where the quantity of electricity fed into the grid by independent producers is disproportionately high is to be eased and the additional costs are to be shared equally among all end consumers.
