Electricity in Ukraine in 2021 will grow by 15%.

“Until 31 December 2020 electricity tariffs for the population will not grow. There is a corresponding decision of the Cabinet, which decided to freeze their increase. But already from 1 January 2021 must earn the open market to create competitive electricity prices for domestic consumers. That is for the people. Now the market price is formed by market instruments,” – said A. Nikonchuk.

According to him, the rise of electricity prices is expected in 2021.

“The first surge in borrowing by 10-15% is expected in the beginning of 2021. Then prices for electricity will depend on how many suppliers we have. That is, from their number and how they will compete with each other. That there will take the initial data for the formation of this price. Also the tariff will be formed depending on gas prices and coal”, – summed A. Nikonchuk.

We will remind, increase of tariffs for electricity for the population is inevitable, assumed the new head of the National Commission, carrying out state regulation in the spheres of energy and communal services Valery Tarasyuk.
