Outline of the Scheme?

This Act obliges electric utilities to purchase electricity generated from renewable energy sources(solar PV, wind power, hydraulic power, geothermal and biomass) based on a fixed-period contract with fixed price, and started on July 1, 2012.
Costs incurred by the utility in purchasing renewable energy sourced electricity shall be transferred to the entire electricity customers, who pay the “Surcharge for renewable energy” in general proportional to electricity usage.
