The National Energy and Utility Regulation Commission (NEURC) raised the electricity price for Ukrainian households today (Sept 1) by 25-30%, as provided for in a plan to increase tariffs previously adopted by the NEURC.
Thus, as of today, electricity tariffs for households have risen to UAH 0.71 per kWh, with a consumption volume up to 100 kWh per month, and to UAH 1.29 per kWh, with a consumption volume from 100 to 600 kWh, while the price for electricity with a consumption level higher than 600 kWh has been set at UAH 1.63 per kWh.
The NEURC has established the electricity tariff for large families, families with adopted children, orphanages and hostels, regardless of the amount of electricity consumed, at UAH 0.71 per kWh. For religious organizations, childcare centers ”Artek” and ”Molodaya Gvardiya” (literally, Young Guard) and urban electric transport, the electricity price has been set at UAH 1.29 per kWh.
As UNIAN reported earlier, in February 2015, the NEURC approved a two-year schedule for the increase in electricity tariffs for Ukrainian households. Under the schedule, the growth in tariffs was registered on April 1, 2015, and September 1, 2015, by an average of 45.2% and 23%, respectively.
On March 1, 2016, the NEURC raised the electricity tariff for households to UAH 0.57 per kWh, with a consumption volume up to 100 kWh.
The next increase in tariffs for Ukrainian households is scheduled for March 1, 2017.
