The ministry is entitled to extend the validity period of the permit by not more than two years.

11. The ministry shall send the permits, in which the introduction of new electricity production equipment or increasing electricity production capacities by more than one megawatt is allowed, without delay to the regulator and the operator of the electricity transmission system.

12. The ministry shall aggregate the permits, in which the introduction of new electricity production equipment or increasing electricity production capacities by one megawatt or less is allowed, and shall once a year (by 31 March) send the aggregated information to the regulator and the operator of the electricity transmission system.

13. The ministry shall register and record all the issued decisions referred to in Paragraph 3 of these Regulations. The ministry shall publish a list of the referred to decisions on the Internet homepage thereof and update it on the first working day of each month, indicating the date of issuance thereof, the merchant company, the registration number, the legal address, the type of power plant and the capacities installed.

14. Cabinet Regulation No. 695 of 29 August 2006, Regulations Regarding Permits for Increasing Electricity Production Capacities or the Introduction of New Production Equipment (Latvijas Vēstnesis, 2006, No. 140), is repealed.

15. Applications for the receipt of a permit to increase electricity production capacities or to introduce new production equipment, which have been submitted by the date of the coming into force of these Regulations, shall be examined in accordance with the procedures specified in Cabinet Regulation No. 695 of 29 August 2006, Regulations Regarding Permits for Increasing Electricity Production Capacities or the Introduction of New Production Equipment.
