The team of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, together with the Government and the National Commission for State Regulation of Energy and Public Utilities, is developing a draft resolution to reduce electricity prices for water utilities by 10%, Presidential representative in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Andriy Herus said.
“The introduction of the electricity market caused an increase in electricity prices for water utilities by 25%. It’s wrong to pass the buck to the end-user. We are developing a mechanism. We are negotiating with the regulator, the Energy Ministry, in order to reduce electricity prices by at least 10% of the level that existed at the beginning of the month. I think that a draft decision on this issue will be adopted in a week or two,” he said. (Ukrinform/Business World Magazine)
