The new rates will encourage people to switch to consumption of electricity at night at a reduced price. The National Commission for State Energy and Public Utilities Regulation plans to reduce the electricity rate for the population at night for lowering of consumption during the peak hours in daytime. The changes include reduction of the tariff rate from 0.7 to 0.5 during the night hours of the minimum loads in the energy system (from 11 pm to 7 am). This rule applies in case of two-zone accounting of power by domestic consumers.
The regulator believes that the proposed changes will encourage people to switch to the consumption of electricity at night at reduced prices. “Such approach will help to align the schedule of loads in the national power system and reduce electricity consumption during peak periods,” reads the statement. Earlier, the Ministry of Energy has offered enterprises to operate at night in order to reduce power consumption during peak hours.Printable version
