Reversal of the § 19 levy 2012 and 2013

Reversal of the § 19 levy 2012 and 2013 in 2014 and 2015

With the adjustment of StromNEV under the amendment of 14th August 2013 the regulations of § 19 para 2 StromNEV were modified. Among others the limits for end consumption named in § 9 para 7 sentences 2 and 3 KWK-G were increased with retroactive effect as from 01st January 2012 to 1,000,000 kWh. This necessitates the reversal of § 19 StromNEV levy for the years 2012 and 2013 and their reassessment in the light of changes in the legal framework.

The system to implement these modified legal regulations of § 19 para 2 StromNEV was agreed with the Federal Network Agency and the Federal Association of Energy and Water (bdew)
