WHY ARE THE GREEN GENERATION CURTAILED FOR OPERATIONAL SAFETY?
Solar Energy Association of Ukraine is concerned about the curtailments of PV generation at night. This happened on May 2, when the PV unloading command arrived from the DSO dispatcher at 3:20 a.m. and lasted until 4:55 p.m. An emergency occurred in the Kherson region.
In addition, according to ASEU participants, dispatchers often provide the PV command for unloading for operational security reasons.
“TSO systematically uses the command to limit the production of “green “energy for operational security reasons “, instead of using the paid service for unloading RES, regulated by the acts of the NEURC.
In our opinion, this will not allow market participants to receive compensation for such curtailments. According to the norms of the Commercial Code of Ukraine, intentionally incurred losses must be compensated in full by the guilty party. Therefore, renewable energy producers are already preparing to recover damages from the TSO in court, said Artem Semenyshyn, director of the Solar Energy Association of Ukraine (ASEU), in a comment to Energoreforma.
