Last month Ilieva, Vucheva & Co. Law Firm represented successfully a producer of electricity from renewable energy source in relation to his claim for reimbursement of the grid access fee paid in compliance with the now revoked Resolution No C 33, dated 14.09.2012 (“Resolution”) of the State Energy and Water Regulatory Commission (now the Commission for Energy and Water Regulation). Although the above decision was revoked by the Supreme Administrative Court in 2013, most electricity distribution companies did not repay or set off the amounts undue that they had collected from the producers of electricity. This led to a wave of lawsuits, which were resolved unfortunately controversially by the courts around the country. However, at the end of 2015 the Supreme Court delivered a Resolution No 212/23.12.2015 on commercial court case No 2956/2014 binding on all courts. It resolved on some of the issues in the cases, which claimed the return of the price for access to the grid. This was one of our arguments in motivating the claim of our client, which led to the voluntary payment of the full amount due by the electricity distribution company.
