Yanukovych: Electricity Tariffs Should Be Lowered!
Before the coming Day of Power Engineering, the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych demanded from the government to reduce the tariffs on electricity. The requirement was made at the ceremony of launching “Hydrounit # 2” on the Dniester PSP. «Despite the global energy crisis, new power generation capacity works well in Ukraine. Due to the launch of «Hydrounit №2», the country will annually save about UAH 250 million. This could allow the cost of electricity and heat be reduced», said the Head of state.
Today average electrical energy is under the tariff 36 kopecks for 1 kWh.
According to the President, the further modernization of the Ukrainian economy is possible in the conditions of electricity rates decrease.
