The reduction in the rate of payment for connection to power grids in Moscow and the Moscow Region in 2011 was the result of changes in regulatory legal acts governing grid connection activities. Starting from January 1, 2011, payment for grid connection only includes expenses for the construction of power grid facilities from existing power grid facilities to the connected power receivers and/or power facilities. The payment for grid connection previously included expenses on the reconstruction of the supply and distribution network.
