The National Electricity Regulatory Commission begins a review of electricity tariffs for the population. As reported by the NERC website, the corresponding item was put on the agenda of the committee meeting scheduled for Thursday, January 13, UKRINFORM reported.

The wording of the paragraph is the following: "Regarding the implementation of measures to bring electricity tariffs for all categories of consumers to the economic levels."

As reported, according to the forecast balance of electricity, fuel and costs of power generating companies in 2011, the Ukrainian government is considering a twofold increase in the price of electricity supplied for the needs of the population since April, and further 39% increase from August 2011.

Thus, as a result of a two-step increase, electricity tariffs in August 2011 may be: for the urban population (without electric cookers) - up to 67.72 kopeks per kWh (including VAT), for households using electric cookers - 52.04 kopeks per kWh, for the rural population - 62.55 kopeks per kWh (1 USD - 7.96 UAH).

Meanwhile, the government generally considers three scenarios of tariffing for the population in 2011. In addition to the above, there is another two-stage variant of increasing prices for the population (by 50% from April and 50% from September), as well as the variant of maintaining the rates unchanged.

As reported, electricity tariffs for the population have not been revised since 2006.
