The Parliament registered a draft resolution to bring the preferential tariff for electricity back for the population for the first 100 kWh.

The Verkhovna Rada registered a draft resolution on adopting urgent measures to return the preferential tariff for electricity for the population for the first 100 kWh (of 90 kopecks), Ekonomichna Pravda reports.

People's deputies from Servant of the People, Batkivshchyna and For the Future parties are the authors of the draft resolution.

The explanatory note says that due to the establishment of fixed electricity prices for household consumers from January 1 to March 31, 2021, at the level of UAH 1.68 per 1 kWh, “the majority of pensioners, who in every possible way saved electricity due to the reduced tariff, from January 1 pay almost twice as much for a payment”.

“Taking this into account, there is an urgent need to take urgent measures aimed at returning the preferential tariff for electricity for the population for the first 100 kWh,” the MPs said.

Recall that the Cabinet of Ministers canceled the preferential electricity tariff of 90 kopecks/kWh for the population for the first 100 kWh and set a fixed price for household consumers at 1.68 UAH/kWh from January 1, 2021.
