The National Commission for State Regulation of Energy and Housing approved the tariff of Ukrenergo for electricity transmission in 2022 at UAH 345.64/MWh or $12,67/MWh (excluding VAT), which is 17.6% higher for the tariff for 2021 (UAH 293.93/MWh or $10,78/MWh). The relevant decision was made by the regulator at the meeting, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
Initially, the National Commission for State Regulation of Energy and Housing approved a draft decision on the transmission tariff for 2022 at the level of UAH 352.38/MWh or $12,92/MWh (excluding VAT). But at the meeting on December 1, it proposed an adjusted amount of UAH 356.9/MWh or $13,09/MWh, and during the meeting it was changed, in particular, taking into account the clarification of the cost of electricity losses.
The regulator did not take into account the payment of 20% of the amount of "green" electricity in the transmission tariff, despite the fact that MFIs, MPs, business, business associations and chambers of commerce strongly insisted on this.
"About 20% operate within the law. It will be changed, and we will change the size of the tariff," National Commission for State Regulation of Energy and Housing chairman Valery Tarasyuk notes.
As it was reported, since December 1 increase of tariffs for gas for half a million households which didn't choose the market supplier and receive gas from the supplier of "last hope" is canceled in Ukraine.
