The launch of a new electricity market for Ukrainian industry on the first of July is a lot of hype, because now rates in the country are inflated by 20% — much higher than almost anywhere in Europe
As is known, in accordance with the decision in 2017 by the Verkhovna Rada Law of Ukraine “On electricity market”, the new wholesale electricity market needs to be introduced on 1 July 2019. The launch of the market is Ukraine’s obligations within the framework of the implementation of the EU Third energy package. As well as the condition of Ukraine’s cooperation with the IMF and receiving macro-financial assistance from EU in the amount of 500 million euros this year. Retail electricity market within the reform of the energy market was launched on 1 January 2019.
Now it became known that the launch of a new electricity market for Ukrainian industry caused the increase of tariffs for business — and they are now 20% higher than in Europe. On 13 August, it was announced at a press conference the head of the NPC Ukrenergo Vsevolod Kovalchuk, reports LIGA.net:
“After the launch of the new market rates for the industry in Ukraine has grown by 20-25% depending on the consumer. For the population the tariff for electricity has not changed.”
Many in Ukraine just in a rage because of such radical innovations, they say, if at the state level saying such conditions, and the supply of electricity almost solely concentrated in the hands of the oligarch Rinat Akhmetov — the one with the new authorities established a “relationship” and will continue to Rob the people.
In addition Vsevolod Kovalchuk said:
“The increase in electricity prices caused by three components: the increase in the price of electricity as a product, the growth of “green energy” and payment of “green tariff”, ” — said the head of “Ukrenergo “.
According to Vsevolod Kovalchuk’s decision problem is to “change the existing system of “PSO” — special obligations in the market, and a return to the market of NNEGC ” Energoatom “:
“According to estimates” Ukrenergo “, the cost of electricity for industry as a commodity, without taking into account the tariff for transmission and distribution, an average of 1700 UAH / MWh, and for the people — 200 UAH / MWh”.
Let us remind that earlier the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky signed a document on “green” tariff. On the website of the Verkhovna Rada published the law, which was signed by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. The document refers to the “green” tariff, which gives the ability to run large-scale projects on the construction of the ground panels to generate solar energy.
Now the French company can run in Ukraine large-scale projects that sell “excess” electricity at the “green” tariff.

The law also provides for the placement of solar power plants households (of SACD) up to 30 kW on the roof or on the ground. Plus the document settled the issue with the Euro “green” tariff of SESD for private household worked prior to the entry into force of the Law of Ukraine No. 2712.
In addition, it was ordered the question to the level of “green” tariff for renewable energy facilities with a capacity of 150 kW. Note, the preliminary decision of deputies angered Ukrainians. Then the owners of home SES forbidden to charge a higher tariff for sale of electricity to the grid. Dissatisfaction was due to the fact that the owners invested in the installation of solar panels is a lot of money, hoping that they will be repaid from the sale of electricity to the state.
We will remind, Law No. 8449-d “On alternative energy sources” April 25, promoted lobbyists oligarch Rinat Akhmetov, in his last days of presidency was signed by Petro Poroshenko. Thus, Akhmetov through the Parliament was forbidden to install home solar power on earth. The norm of the law it was possible to put panels on the facades of major buildings and on the roof. During the term of this document, Akhmetov became a complete monopoly, because in such hands, small solar power station was not threatened by his DTEK. Many people wishing to install their own solar power, gave up the idea, because it became unprofitable.
Earlier we wrote that Zelensky has submitted the bill “On restoring the” green “tariff for households” (No. 10375) on June 12. The law makes it possible to build constructions on the ground, gives a very different perspective. Now Akhmetov has just seven MPs, who will not be able to influence the situation.
Recall, NABOO pressed the brainchild of Poroshenko and Akhmetov: “four of the six already…”
As reported Politeka, Poroshenko stuck Zelensky for new appointments and received the answer: “I would take their chocolate …”.
Also Politeka wrote that Zelensky has made an emergency appeal, landing discarded: “We can …”.
