According to the journalist, may 22, in the Verkhovna Rada was registered the draft law No. 10318, which proposed to amend the Law of Ukraine “On electricity market”
The head of Committee on fuel and energy complex Verhovnoi Rada Oleksandr Dombrovsky and a member of the Committee-the representative “Self-help” Leo Pidlisetsky in the interests of Igor Kolomoisky has registered a bill to postpone the timely launch of the electricity market scheduled for 1 July 2019.
The main proposed change is the postponement of the introduction of the new market, implying the transition from a manual adjustment of electricity tariffs to market pricing. “So, if earlier it was planned that the new energy terms will be available from 1 July 2019, in the bill, which is sponsored by the people’s Deputy from BPP Alexander Dombrowski and the representative of the “Samopomichi” the lion Pidlisetsky, a postponement of the date of start-up innovations in the three months to 1 October.”
As the media says, the deputies attributed the move alleged unwillingness of the market to launch, as well as possible increase in electricity tariffs for the population. “Declared MP care about ordinary Ukrainians in the main reason for the bill is questioned. The transition to market pricing of energy relates exclusively to the business (energy producers and industrial consumers). Direct impact on the population (households), the introduction of the new market will not have, as the law “On electricity market” means work for them in the so-called special obligations (PSO). Mode of PSO involves the sale of electricity to domestic consumers at reduced rate”, – writes the edition.
As stated by Igor Kolomoisky in an interview to Ukrainian truth, the introduction of the electricity market should be abolished.
We will remind, recently in the broadcast channel espresso investanalitik Sergey Fursa said that interested in the postponement or cancellation of the reform of the electricity market is the businessman Igor Kolomoysky because he is in control of Ferroalloy plants, which are the largest consumers of electricity.
