The thermal power plant will be able to use the average price of gas for the previous heating season.
The tariffs for heating and other utility services will be calculated taking into account the operating conditions of the gas and electricity markets. The decision was taken on Wednesday, June 10, at the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.
As stated in the explanatory note to the draft decree, in the market the cost of gas for the enterprises of heat changes monthly.
This creates problems for planning of energy costs, which account for 80-85% of the cost of heating. Therefore, any change leads to a mismatch of actual expenditure planned.
Now the thermal power plant will be able in the calculation of rates use the middle price of gas for the previous heating season. This year it amounted to 4048 UAH/1000 m3.
According to calculations of the Cabinet, the new approach does not lead to higher tariffs because tariffs today in most enterprises enterprise taken into account the price of gas 6235 UAH/1000 m3.
