Due to the temporary termination in court of the resolutions’ validity of the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission from 07.06.2019 No.954 and No.955 on setting tariffs for SOE NPC Ukrenrego for the second half of 2019, in July Ukrenergo will issue bills for its services at the tariff which operated until July 1, 2019. The press service of Ukrenergo reports it.
In accordance with the resolution of the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission of 12.12.2018 No.1905, which established a single tariff for the company for the third quarter of 2019 – 57.40 UAH/MWh. The company reports that such a tariff is not designed for the operation of NPC Ukrenergo in the conditions of the new electricity market.
At the same time, a new column “Recommended to pay” will appear in bills, in which charge will be issued using new tariffs for the second half of 2019, approved by the Resolution of the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission No.954 and No.955 dated 06.06.2019 for their services precisely at the tariffs indicated in the column “Recommended to pay”.
“This will ensure the fulfillment of the functions assigned to Ukrenergo in the new electricity market, and accordingly – to maintain the operational security of the power system. Also, Ukrenergo will be able to fully fulfill its special obligations, which include, in particular, theto pay Guaranteed buyer the difference between the market price of electricity from renewables and the “green” tariff and the purchase of electricity to compensate technological losses in the networks”, the company reports.
Now Ukrenergo disputes the suspension of the Regulator’s resolution in the Court of Appeal.
Now the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission is considering a draft resolution providing for the establishment of new tariffs for Ukrenergo on electricity transmission from August 1, 2019.
It proposes to establish the tariff at the level of 312.12 UAH/MWh. So, the transfer tariff will be reduced by 10% from the rate established by the Resolution of the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission No.954 (347.43 UAH/MWh).
This is due to a decrease in the cost of purchasing electricity to compensate for technological losses, the cost of which is determined by taking into account the price of electricity from Energoatom at electronic auctions (80%) and the average price of electricity in the “day ahead market” (20%).
Recall that the court suspended the Resolutions of the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission No.954 and No.955 dated June 7, 2019, which set the tariffs for NPC Ukrenergo on electricity transmission and dispatch management services for the second half of the year.
