Since 2007, a common pot technique for calculating tariffs for power transmission for all consumers has been applied in the region: for all consumers of Kuban and Adygea of the power transmission service, a single pot tariff is applied, regardless of the grid operator and the grid they are connected to.
The main tariff-contractual model used for calculations is the “Pot at the top”:
the status of a system-forming network organization – “pot holder” is enshrined for Rosseti Kuban. According to this model, Rosseti Kuban collects funds paid by consumers for the electricity transmission services (regardless of the grid operator and the grid they are connected to), after which the Company settles accounts with lower-level grid operators, to the grids of which the electric energy consumers’ electric load is connected, for individual tariffs.
