Green energy account with surplus of more than 3.5 billion euros in June

Netztransparenz / pv magazine

Germany’s ‘green energy account’ had a surplus of 3,688,937,633.01 euros in June 2016, according to new figures published by the four transmission grid operators (TSOs). This is about 500 million euros less than in June 2015. The TSOs provide a balance of income (mostly from the EEG surcharge and electricity sales at market prices) and expenses (feed-in tariffs for green energy) on a monthly basis. According to an article in pv magazine, the surplus traditionally falls during the summer months, when feed-in from solar PV and the resulting tariffs are high.
