Lower electricity prices to industries will contribute to
the development of enterprises and their competitiveness improvement, said
Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in his communication with media
people during a visit to a separate subdivision Khmelnytska
NPP of NNEGC "Energoatom".
"Measures introduced by the National Commission
[National Regulatory Commission for Energy and Utilities - NRCEU] on the
reduction of electricity prices for industries in different territories –
depending on the region, somewhere by 3%, in some territories by 15%, are
absolutely correct. This provides the opportunity to make Ukrainian products
more competitive. It means jobs, it means Ukrainian product," stressed
The Prime Minister
noted that there would be two waves of reduction in price starting 1 January
and 1 April affecting industrial production facilities. The downturn will make
up 5-15% basing on the volumes of production and electricity consumption
performance in each particular region.
said the Head of Government would be more tangible for industrial regions as
they are electricity intensive consumers.
"We must put more focus on the development and competitiveness of
our domestic industry, and a component of electric energy pricing is extremely
important," highlighted Volodymyr Groysman.
