“NCSREU is obliged to ensure financing for the companies while the companies are obliged to install metering devises for the citizens. People should pay for what they receive. While what they receive should correspond to the quality and quantity fixed by relevant metering devices,” PM Arseniy Yatsenyuk emphasized at the Government session on Wednesday, April 8.

He reminded that by law metering devices shall be installed by the companies specializing in relevant service and the cost of this shall be included in relevant tariff.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed the importance of communal services quality. He called on the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of Ukraine, the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine and the National Commission for State Regulation in Energy and Utilities (NCSREU): "The quality of service is task number one. Instead of just changes in tariffs, to improve quality, change approaches and provide compensation from the government for subsidies, insulating buildings and reducing energy consumption".

The Prime Minister accentuated the Parliament should adopt a new law on the National Commission for State Regulation in Energy and Utilities: "NCSREU should be an independent body that establishes transparent tariffs, is accountable to the citizens of Ukraine, how this tariff was calculated, and controls each power supply company for compliance with the fixed tariff and the funds received from the citizens of Ukraine", stressed Arseniy Yatsenyuk

The Prime Minister informed that the Cabinet of Ministers in synergy with the energy community had already elaborated a relevant bill.
