Electricity tariffs for Ukrainians will rise in two times

Тарифы на электроэнергию для украинцев поднимут в два раза

In Ukraine the rate for the population today covers only 50% of the cost of electricity.

This was stated by a member of the National Commission, carrying out state regulation in spheres of power and utilities (NKREKU), Dmitry Kovalenko, reports “UKRINFORM”.

“Painful issue of the new market there are cross-subsidies. Today 50% of the cost of electrical energy is compensated by the consumers. This is a very low level. In my opinion, this question can be solved only one way: the simultaneous adoption of a decision on increase of the tariff for population and the introduction of an effective system of subsidies for vulnerable segments of the population,” — said Kovalenko.

In his opinion, this is a complex issue for the entire country, however, necessary for the implementation of the new market.

In pursuance of Ukraine’s obligations under the Third EU energy package in April 2017 parliamentarians adopted the law “On electricity market”. This law “provides for the introduction of new market model that includes a number of segments: bilateral contracts market, the market “day ahead”, vnutricletocny market, balancing market and ancillary services market. In the implementation of the act provides for a two-year transition period.
