There was a 25% decrease in the number of applications submitted in 2011 compared to 2010 (down 5% in Moscow and 31% in the Moscow Region). The reduction is attributable to the Company’s stricter requirements for the quality of documents and information submitted in the grid connection applications by applicants of subsidized categories in accordance with the requirements of the Regulations for Grid Connection approved by Decree No. 861 of the RF Government dated December 27, 2004.

Applicants from subsidized categories submitted the maximum number of applications (up to 15 kW) in 2010 due to the entry into force of Decree No. 334 of the RF Government dated April 21, 2009, which significantly simplified the grid connection procedure for this category of applicants.

In 2011, the number of applications submitted by applicants from subsidized categories returned to the level of 2009. There was a 27% reduction in the overall capacity of the grid connection applications due to the Company’s stricter requirements for the quality of documents submitted and to the pre-crisis expectations of investment companies. This resulted in:

  • a reduction in the number of contracts concluded in Moscow from 5,672 in 2010 to 3,502 in 2011. At the same time, there was a significant increase in the amount of capacity connected under the grid connection contracts (from 333 MW in 2010 to 965 MW in 2011) due to the substantial reduction in tariffs for grid connection services in Moscow;
  • a 678-MW reduction in the amount of capacity connected under the grid connection contracts (from 1,911 MW in 2010 to 813 MW in 2011). The number of contracts concluded fell from 28,939 in 2010 to 19,388 in 2011.
