What is the price of 1 kWh?

The Decree on Electricity Feed-In Tariffs was adopted by the Government of the Republic of Macedonia on 13.12.2011, and which entered into force on 22.12.2011 ("Official Gazette of the Republic of Macedonia" no. 176/11). Photovoltaic power plants can obtain the status of preferential generator provided their installed capacity is lower of equal to 1 MW. The feed-in tariffs for electricity generated and delivered by photovoltaic power plants, depending on the plant’s installed capacity, are set as following: Installed capacity of the power plant ≤0.050 MW Feed in tariff (€¢KWh) 30. Installed capacity of the power plant ≥0.050 MW Feed in tariff (€¢KWh) 26. The preferential producer has right to use the feed-in tariff for a period of 15 years.
If the capacity is full, do you known when the new quotas will be release and for what price?

The Government should decide if there is a need to change the Decision for total installed capacity of preferential generators for photovoltaic power plants and the Decree on Electricity Feed-In Tariffs, or not.
