Green Electricity Act (Ökostromgesetz)

Tariff subsidisation is regulated by the national Green Electricity Act (Ökostromgesetz). The latest amendment to the Green Electricity Act came into force on  20th October 2009 (BGBl. I Nr. 104/2009).
The amendment stipulates that only PV systems with a peak output of more than 5 kW will continue to receive tariff subsidisation according to the Green Electricity Act. Photovoltaic systems with less peak output power will be subsidised under the Climate and Energy Fund instead of receiving tariff subsidisation. The previous co-financing scheme with the states was dropped. Valid feed-in tariffs are defined in the Green Electricity by-law.

Current feed-in tariffs according to Green Electricity by-law 2010

Feed-in tariffs for electrical energy produced by photovoltaic systems which are exclusively installed in buildings or noise barriers are set to:

1. more than 5 kWp to 20 kWp   38 Cent/kWh

2. more than 20 kWp                33 Cent/kWh.

Feed-in tariffs for electrical energy produced by photovoltaic systems which are not exclusively installed in buildings or noise barriers are set to:

1. more than 5 kWp to 20 kWp   35 Cent/kWh

2. more than 20 kWp                25 Cent/kWh.
