Merger Fee on Solar Net-metering
The Egyptian Electricity Utility and Consumer Protection Regulatory Agency (EgyptERA) announced that it will apply a ‘merger fee’ to net-metered solar systems. The fee will be EGP 0.10-0.40/kWh on net-metered solar arrays, to cover the cost of integrating them into the grid network
The decision to impose the fee comes as part of EgyptERA Decision No. 2/2020 on new net-metering rules. However, the level of the charge has not yet been determined and would be announced in due course on the regulator’s website.
