As previously reported, Ukraine from July 1 must make the electricity market, for which the tariffs should be higher. As you know, the tariffs, according to the document, will determine the balance of supply and demand, not the regulator. Because of this, first, the rates must rise, but then uronate under market pressure. All this told the Minister of energy Igor Nasalik.
“It may be a short-term period of growth, but at the expense of competition, as a result, rates will back off,” said Nasalik.
The electricity market enables providers feel more comfortable in the new system. “The main parties stated that no comments to the market they have,” added Nasalik.
Under the new rules the Ukrainians will have the right to choose from whom and at what rate to buy electricity. For example, the Minister explained how to buy energy from a Ukrainian who works nights. If he’s not home, and the consumption occurs during the day, he will be able to choose a special tariff, which is designed to use the “current” day. As a result, the cost of this electricity may be lower, as the peak load traditionally occurs the evening, when the Ukrainians return to work.
We will remind that the Cabinet of Ministers adopted a new decision on tariffs for gas.
As reported Politeka, the government has solved the problem with the charge slips for gas without counters that had been troubling millions of Ukrainians.
Also Politeka wrote that the national Commission published the formula for calculating the fee for gas.
