Feed-in tariffs for households decreased by 6.3% take effect on Oct 12
Resolution of the National Commission for the State Regulation of Energy, Housing and Utilities Services (NCER) No. 556 dated June 26, 2018 on the reduction of feed-in tariffs for households by 6.3% took effect on October 12.
The document after over three months of delay was finally published in the Uriadovy Kurier newspaper on October 11, although the regulator planned to introduce the new tariffs from July 1.
According to the justification of the changes, the adjustment of tariffs is associated with a change in the euro exchange rate.
As reported, the previous resolution of the commission, which sets the size of feed-in tariffs for households (No. 359 of March 23, 2018) and entered into force on June 24, provided for an increase in tariffs by 0.8% due to the growth of the euro exchange rate.
The NCER carries out state regulation of the activities of natural monopolies in the electric power industry, heat supply, the oil and gas complex, centralized water supply and drainage, processing and disposal of domestic waste, and provides price and tariff policy in these areas.
