Losses of Ukrenergo in the first half of the year amounted to UAH 18 billion

NPC Ukrenergo reported that in the first half of the year, the company's negative financial result amounted to UAH 18.03 billion, stressing that the key reason is the costs that the company has to cover due to PSO in the electricity market.

The actual tariff income for the payment of PSO in January-June this year amounted to UAH 4.6 billion. However, the actual costs for the implementation of PSO project during this period amounted to UAH 21.43 billion,” the message says.
