Communication from the Energy Regulatory Commission of February 11, 2009 relating to public service charges for electricity and the unit contribution for 2009
The meeting was attended by Philippe de LADOUCETTE, President, Michel LAPEYRE, Vice-President, Maurice MÉDA, Vice-President, Jean-Paul AGHETTI, Eric DYEVRE and Emmanuel RODRIGUEZ, Commissioners.
On October 9, 2008, CRE sent the Minister responsible for energy its proposal relating to the public service charges for electricity and the unit contribution for 2009. The unit contribution (CSPE) to cover the costs had been assessed. at € 4,8 / MWh (i.e. € 0,0048 / kWh)
In the absence of an order setting the CSPE for 2009, the CSPE for 2008 is automatically renewed for 2009, in application of the twelfth paragraph of article 5 of law n ° 2000-108 of February 10, 2000. The CSPE applicable in 2009 is therefore € 4,5 / MWh.
Since CRE's proposal to the Minister, certain economic data involved in the calculation of the 2009 forecast expenses have evolved (lower 2009 futures market prices, lower gas sales rates, integration of the TICGN into the remuneration of gas , etc.).
With this communication, CRE publishes the assessment of public service charges
2009 forecasts taking into account these new data, which lead to an increase in the amount of expenses of € 352,6 million, bringing it to € 2 million. It is on the basis of this communication that it will notify their charges to the operators concerned, in accordance with Article 237,6 of Decree No. 7-2004 of January 90, 28 relating to the compensation of public service charges for electricity.
The contribution necessary to cover these charges is 5,8 € / MWh. This amount exceeds the ceiling set by article 5 of the law of February 10, 2000, equal to 7% of the regulated 6 kVA basic sales tariff (excluding subscription), ie 5,6 € / MWh currently. The difference between this contribution and the
contribution in force will induce a recovery deficit estimated at € 482 million on the basis of a forecast contribution base.
This recovery deficit will induce a compensation default for EDF and Electricité de Mayotte, which will be taken into account in the calculation of the 2011 forecast public service charges for these operators and can therefore not be filled until this deadline.
This document provides a better understanding of the operation of the repurchase of renewable electricity by EDF and especially to put figures there.
