The Government of Uzbekistan plans to provide tax benefits to individuals, who are using alternative sources of electric power.

The draft law “On amendments to Articles 275 and 290 of the Tax Code of the Republic of Uzbekistan” was published for discussion on the portal of interactive public services.

According to the document, individuals can be exempted from land tax and property tax for a period of three years for using alternative sources of electricity and completely disconnecting from existing energy networks.

The basis for granting this privilege is a certificate of energy supply organizations on the use of alternative sources of electrical energy with a complete cut-off from existing energy networks, the draft law said.

Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed a resolution “On the program of measures for further development of renewable energy, improving energy efficiency in economic and social spheres for 2017-2021” on 27 May 2017.

The resolution was adopted to reduce the energy intensity in the gross domestic product and cost of production and to expand the use of energy from renewable sources in economic and social sectors for 2017-2021.

Uzbekistan plans to diversify the fuel balance through renewable energy sources, replacing them with traditional fuels and reducing their share in production of electricity and heat.

Long-term programs will be implemented to reduce the energy intensity of production in the sectors of the economy, and improve the environmental situation in industrial activity areas.

Uzbek leader approved targeted parameters on further development of renewable energy, which envisages to increase share of renewable energy in structure of generating capacities from 12.7% to 19.7% by 2025, including hydro power from 12.7% to 15.8%, solar energy – to 2.3% and wind energy to 1.6%.

President of Uzbekistan approved implementation of 810 projects for development of renewable energy for a total sum of US$5.3 billion in 2017-2025.
