Construction of facilities for power plants

Before starting to construct a facility for the production of electricity with an effective rated output of more than 1 MW and which is connected to the public grid, the investor must possess a final energy permit.

If a facility is being constructed for which a building permit must be obtained, the investor may request a building permit after it has obtained a final energy permit.
