About 1.5 million Ukrainian families that according to the
results of the heating season have saved resource granted as a housing subsidy
for gas and electricity, which is used only for heating of homes, will in the
near future receive gratuity from the Government. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr
Groysman announced at a session of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
According to him, in the fall of 2016 the Government
promised the Ukrainians monetary assistance for the smart energy consumption on
the outcomes of the heating period.
"The Government has fulfilled its promise. Those households
which demonstrated energy savings will shortly receive a reward for energy
efficiency - up to UAH 700 in cash. This project is being implemented in
Ukraine for the first time and will be the impetus for a more extended monetization,
which is included in the top priority list of the Government", said Volodymyr
It should be noted that the Government project for the
monetization of the economized subsidy stipulates for cash payments to
households showing off energy savings equivalent to the cost of saved 150
kilowatts of electricity when used for heating, or 100 cubic meters of gas.
