The Ministry of Energy: Electricity tariffs for the population will not increase

The Ministry of Energy of Ukraine reported that the price of electricity for the population will remain unchanged until the end of this year even in a difficult socio-economic situation.

The Ministry responded to the dissemination in the media that electricity tariffs for the population will increase from October 1, 2020,.

Tariffs for electricity supply to the population are set by the resolution of the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission No.220 dated February 26, 2015.

 According to the resolution, the price for electricity is (including VAT):

• up to 100 kWh – 90 kopecks per kWh,

• more than 100 kWh – 168 kopecks per kWh.

The preservation of a fixed preferential electricity tariff for the population in the new model of the electricity market is carried out within the PSO, launched by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated 05.06.2019 No.483 “On public interests in the functioning of the electricity market” (as amended).
