The program for the installation of meters for heat has been failed by the local authorities and heat suppliers, Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister Pavlo Rozenko said on 112 Ukraine TV channel.
”I can say that the plans, which have been provided to local authorities and heat supplier enterprises to install meters in every household, failed. Local authorities and heat supplier enterprises have failed with this program. Today, about 60% Ukrainian houses are equipped with heat meters,” Rozenko said.
The Minister also said that there is still a month and a half to correct the situation, and the government will not just observe how heat suppliers sabotage the process of installation of heat meters.
”There is still time, some month and a half. If the situation does not change radically for a month and a half, I promise that the government and the National Commission for State Regulation in Energy and utilities will properly respond to this situation,” Rozenko said.
