AMMAN — Ziyad Saaida, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Energy and Minerals Regulatory Commission (EMRC), announced that starting April 1, users of renewable energy systems in all sectors, except for small and medium-sized industrial and agricultural sectors, will be required to pay JD2 fees for the continued service of electric current in the absence of sunlight.اضافة اعلان

JD2 to replace electricity grid feesAccording to Al-Mamalaka TV, Saaida said that the JD2 fees will be collected instead of the fees for using the electricity grid, which is currently provided by the National Electric Power Company and the Electricity Distribution Company.

The fee is because renewable energy users are connected to the electricity grid to ensure a continuous and stable supply of electricity, as solar energy systems may not always produce enough energy during periods of low sunlight, he said.

While the cost of installing solar cells is not the responsibility of the Energy and Minerals Regulatory Commission, Saaida clarified that it is a technology used in all sectors.
