  • end-use of electricity consumers connected via a direct line,
  • other own electricity consumption of electricity producer,
  • own consumption of electricity during electricity generation that was consumed from the system.

The payment for system services and system operation is not charged to electricity producer upon consumption of electricity for the purpose of pumping in pumped-storage power stations and upon own consumption during electricity generation that is not consumed from the grid the electricity generation equipment is connected to.
