Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksandr Dombrovsky and Lev Pidlisetsky registered the draft law No.10318 on postponing the new wholesale electricity market launch for three months.
“In the current conditions, the government’s resignation, the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada and the extraordinary parliamentary elections, no one has the right to risk the interests of Ukrainian citizens and the economy of Ukraine. We believe that three months will be enough to conduct a full-fledged test of the participants’ readiness to work in the new electricity market and analyze the financial implications of its introduction”, the acting head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on fuel and energy issues, nuclear policy and nuclear safety, Dombrovsky, wrote on his Facebook page.
He also proposes to provide the relevant authority to the Energy and Utilities the National Regulatory Commission to set price limits in the day-ahead market and the intra-day market, which balances the market and under bilateral agreements for a period of 12 months. This will help to reduce electricity prices for consumers and create effective competition in accordance with the standards of the Third Energy Package.
In addition, the draft law also states the provision of a “green” tariff to ground-based home solar power plants with a capacity of up to 30 kW.
