There is no fixed tariff but the prosumers are allowed to exchange the surplus of energy produced by favourable conditions for gaps in energy production in the future in relation 1 to 0.8 in the case of micro-installations with capacity up to 10 kW and 1 to 0.7 in the case of micro-installations with capacity above 10 kW (but below 50 kW).
