Questions / Answers
Will my electricity supplier be informed of my deletions?
No, he will not be informed. Rte will send your supplier your load curves corrected for erasures. Your electricity bill will be adapted according to these load curves. Your premiums related to your cancellation will be paid by your aggregator.
Why do you need an aggregator?
The aggregator will make the best use of power generation from the plant on the market to maximize revenue for the generator. For this purpose, the aggregator will be responsible for market access, network risks (forecasts and production gaps) and network responsibilities (certifications, REMIT reporting, negative price periods).
Is there a difference between the purchase obligation mechanism and the supplementary compensation mechanism?
Yes, the purchase obligation mechanism allows the producer to benefit from a purchase obligation tariff guaranteed by the State for the duration of the contract while the additional remuneration allows to benefit from a supplement paid by the State between the tariff proposed by the producer during calls for tenders and the tariff of sale of electricity on the market. The obligation to purchase mechanism has now been replaced by the additional remuneration.
