Small plant tariff system proposed

A new tariff system for isolated renewables plant selling power to a single dwelling is being considered by the Danish Energy Agency. The government has otherwise planned for small plant to be built by the thousands in Denmark, but this has yet to happen, mainly because small tends to be too expensive. The agency is proposing either a guaranteed minimum price for power from small turbine owners, or a net metering rule, which allows a consumer's power meter to run backwards corresponding to the amount of electricity the turbine has produced. Small turbines are up against another hurdle, however. Many of Denmark's county and regional governments are not following the energy agency's rules in permitting the installation of small turbines at private homes and are refusing site permits, according to Denmark's wind turbine owners association.
