The statement about utilities forced transition to an hourly flow of water — it is blackmail and an attempt to discredit the new electricity market

As reported by the Commander in chief, wrote to the President of the Association of energy of Ukraine Alexander Trohimets on his page in Facebook, commenting on the statement by the Association of water utilities about the possibility of switching to an hourly flow of water because of the alleged higher prices for their electricity.

“Absolutely illogical threat to water utilities on an hourly water flow. What this will change? The water supply is the work of pumps that shake it. From the fact that they will work a few hours instead of 24, electricity is cheaper for them not to be. Will consume less electricity? So water will be less to sell. Respectively, and receive less money. So how does the transition to an hourly flow solve the problem is unknown,” — said the expert.
The expert also considers unfounded the allegations by the representative of the President in the government of Andrei Gerus, who said that problems arose because of the imperfection of the energy reform.

“Mr Gerus, as the President’s representative in the Cabinet, it would be better to write the algorithm to solve the problem and has submitted it to the Government, as his proposal. But he is able only to write stupid posts, using various pretexts to discredit the electricity market and the discharge of social tension … the Problem is the cost of electricity for utilities could be solved by putting special obligations on it security SE “NNEGC “Energoatom”. Incidentally, this question of the Cabinet, solved by the adoption of appropriate regulations,” wrote Trohimets.

He noticed that the water utilities are the most unfair payers. It was in the old market. And as soon as you have entered the first stage of reform from January 1, 2019, the water utilities were the first customers of the supplier of last resort, whose rate was much higher today’s electricity prices.

“Utilities have always been involved in blackmail, hiding behind its social value. But the blatant mismanagement and negligence thus cannot hide — sooner or later they will have to develop a set of measures aimed at solving the syndrome of non-payment from the utilities. Utilities very energoeffektivnye company. And this problem also must be solved. Moreover, the money in the local budgets is, just look at the website of the state Treasury information about execution of local budgets in the first half income was nearly 129 billion UAH (by the way, is 20% higher than last year). Therefore, the source of funds for the modernization of municipal utilities have,” says Trohimets.
