Increase in electricity tariffs will take place in five stages, so as not to be a bolt from the blue for the budgets of taxpayers. This was stated by deputy of “Samopomich” Union faction Lev Pidlisetskyi following the meeting of the National Electricity Regulatory Commission.
“Increase in electricity tariffs will be taking place from April 2015 to 2017. Thus, the growth won’t be a shock to taxpayers,” –said the MP.
In addition, according to Lev Pidlisetskyi, a multilayered scale of charges for various categories of taxpayers will be introduced, and the system of targeted subsidies will be operating.
The deputy notes that the main tariff growth will affect the consumers who use more than 1,000 kW per month. And for the consumers who use less than 100 kW per month, the price won’t change at all.
“Therefore, the principles of social justice and sustainable resource use will be in action. If you consume more, you pay more. In addition, the system of targeted subsidies will be operating,” – he said.
