Connection of the customer’s power energy facilities to the external power grids should start from submission of the application to the power distribution company (oblenergo).
Connection services are provided by the power distribution company on the basis of the Connection Agreement where Technical Specifications are its integral part being a subject to certain requirements foreseen for each type of connection: standard , non-standard and for electricity generation.
Technical Specifications for connection of the power energy facilities to the power grids is a set of conditions and requirements for the engineering supply of the customer’s facility with electricity which should meet its design parameters on power distribution.


FOR STANDARD CONNECTION OF THE FACILITY:


Within 5 working days from the date of application the power distribution company should provide the customer on a free of charge basis with the Connection Agreement defining the connection fee and technical specifications for standard connection, which are its integral part.


FOR CONNECTION OF THE NON-STANDARD FACILITY:


Not later than in 15 working days from the date of application and within 30 working days in the case when it is necessary to agree documents with the owner  of main / interstate power networks the power distribution company should prepare and submit a draft Connection Agreement and signed technical specifications for non-standard connection on a free of charge basis.


FOR CONNECTION OF THE ELECTRICITY GENERATION FACILITY:


When connecting power energy facilities intended for electricity generation with capacity of 70 MW and above the customer should submit application for connection to the licensee of power distribution through main and interstate power networks.
When connecting power energy facilities intended for electricity generation with capacity up to 10 MW, the customer should submit application for connection to that power distribution company within the licensed territory of which the facility site is located.
When connecting power energy facilities intended for electricity generation with capacity from 10 to 70 MW the customer may apply for connection either to the power distribution company within the licensed territory of which the facility site is located or to the licensee of power distribution through main and interstate power networks. The final decision on connection of the customer’s power energy facility should be defined through development of the feasibility study considering impact on the quality of electric power in the zone of possible connection.
Technical Specifications for connection of the power generating facilities to the power grids should be issued to the customer not later than in 15 working days from the date of application and within 30 working days in the case when it is necessary to agree documents with the owner of main / interstate power networks on a free of charge basis. Technical Specifications do not contain requirements for the external power supply.
In each case the cost of non-standard connection should be determined on the basis of construction documents and estimates in accordance with "The method of fee calculation for connection to the power grids" (NERC Resolution dated 12.02.2013 No. 115) and should be drafted in the form of an additional agreement to the Connection Agreement.
Fee for the customers for standard connection is based on the respective rates approved by NKREKP (Resolution No. 3019 as of 22.12.2015) and the capacity value claimed by the customer.
The rates of standard connection giving the example of the Kyiv region:

cost of the connection to the power grids III category of reliability up to 16 kW

 

For connection of the power energy facilities (I level , up to 16 kW inclusive, 2016) to the existing grids of the power distribution company for a distance not exceeding 300 meters in a straight line (total) from two places providing power to the connection point (without VAT) thousand UAH/1 kW.

cost of the connection to the power grids II category of reliability up to 16 kW

 

For connection of the power energy facilities (II level , from 16 kW  up to 50 kW inclusive, 2016) to the existing grids of the power distribution company for a distance not exceeding 300 meters in a straight line  from the place providing power to the connection point (without VAT) thousand UAH/1 kW.

cost of connection to the power grids III category of reliability from 16 kW up to 50 kW

 

For connection of the power energy facilities (II level , from 16 kW  up to 50 kW inclusive, 2016) to the existing grids of the power distribution company for a distance not exceeding 300 meters in a straight line  from the two places providing power to the connection point (without VAT) thousand UAH/1 kW.

cost of the connection to the power grids I and II category of reliability from 16 kW up to 50 kW
