"Due to the fact that the share of gas in the cost of heat and hot water averages 53%, then, according to our calculations, the tariffs for heat and water supplies will rise by 20-25%," he said.
The minister said that at the heat and water supplying enterprises actively involved in the introduction of energy-saving technologies, the share of gas in the cost of heat and hot water ranges between 45% and 53%, while at the enterprises where this issue is not being worked out so thoroughly the share of gas is 60%.
As reported, the retail prices of natural gas for the public will grow by 50% from August 1, 2010. A respective decision was taken by the National Electricity Regulatory Commission of Ukraine on July 13, 2010. The commission also decided to increase from August 1, 2010 a price ceiling for natural gas for thermal power plants supplying heat and hot water to the public.
