Renewable Energy Description:

Regional Deployment Program is financed by KEMCO and is managed by local governments to facilitate the use of new and renewable energy.

The Regional Deployment Program consists of an Infrastructure Build-Up Program and a Demonstration Program.

The Program provides loans for the production and purchase of facilities using new and renewable energy at 4.75% interest with a three-year grace and five-year repayment period.

Production incentives are available where renewables based electricity is purchased by a government-owned utility at the rate equivalent to the average retail price set by the Electricity Law. Electricity generated by hydro and wind power projects is paid at the same rate. PV is not yet commercially viable and not subject to the scheme.

Tax incentives are offered in the form of income tax credits and compensate 10% of the total investment.

This record is superseded by:Basic Plan for the Promotion of the Development, Use and Diffusion of New and Renewable Energy
