You can request the rate the foundation uses from one of our employees. The rate consists of the following components:

  • A yearly general administrative contribution
  • A POM contribution

In this case, 'POM' stands for 'Put on the Market': this is the quantity of solar energy products that you brought to the market in the previous year, expressed in tons. The POM contribution is used to cover the costs incurred by the ZRN for removing waste. This contribution distributes the costs in proportion to the market share of the participants. Both the administrative contribution and the POM surcharge are used to cover the general costs of the ZRN. Moreover, the POM contribution decreases when the total POM handled by ZRN increases. This means that every participant benefits from the growing number of participants and the market share of the ZRN.
