NEURC raised the tariff for electricity transmission

From August 1, 2020, the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission will increase the tariff of NPC Ukrenergo for electricity transmission by 54.6%. It is reported by UNIAN.

The tariff for electricity transmission will be increased by 54.6% - from UAH 155.4 per MWh to UAH 240.23 per MWh (excluding VAT).

NEURC made the corresponding decision in order to provide a source of company funds to pay off debt to producers of electricity from renewable sources.

According to the draft decision of NEURC before the meeting on July 11, it was proposed to increase the electricity transmission tariff of Ukrenergo more than doubled from August 1, to UAH 327.9 per MWh (excluding VAT), and earlier it was planned to increase the tariff 4 times to the level of UAH 596.48 per MWh.

Ukrenergo will hold negotiations with international financial organizations in order to attract additional credit funds.

“The tariffs are recalculated taking into account the approved level of tariff for electric power transmission services of Ukrenergo at the level of UAH 240.23 UAH per MWh, then, accordingly, the average for the country will decrease tariffs for electricity distribution services, in particular, in the first class voltage by 2%, and on the second – about 1%, thus, the increase in tariffs for electric power transmission services is compensated to a certain extent by a decrease in tariffs for electric power distribution services and, accordingly, the final impact on the price of electric power for the consumer will be to some extent leveled,” noted the Chairman of NEURC.
