Reduce tariffs in the Far East can be due to dividends RusHydro - Ministry of Energy and RF Ministry of Economic Development

The Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation supported the idea of ​​the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation not to burden large consumers to reduce tariffs in the Far East, the Kommersant daily writes.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, at the suggestion of Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev, instructed to calculate the premium for the wholesale energy market, but the ministries insist on compensation due to the growth of dividends of PJSC RusHydro, which owns the main energy company in the region, RAO ES of the East.

As follows from a letter from the Deputy Minister of Energy Vyacheslav Kravchenko to the Ministry of Economic Development from 27 in November, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation supported the position of the Ministry of Economic Development on preventing additional burden on consumers and using budget funds to support energy tariffs in the Far East.

The Ministry of Economic Development proposed to increase RusHydro's dividends to 60% of net profit, then the budget will receive about 12 billion rubles. Annually, which can be sent for compensation.

The Ministry of Energy in general supported the idea with dividends, but taking into account the financing of the investment program of RusHydro. Forecast net profit of RusHydro after deduction of investments will provide tariff compensation for the Far-Eastern Federal District in the amount of 7,6 billion rubles. In 2016 year, 8,8 billion rubles. In 2017 year and 14,3 billion rubles. In 2018 year. RusHydro notes that the most capital-intensive investment projects will end in 2018-2019, only then one can think of a gradual increase in dividends up to 60% of profit. While its significant part is eaten by the interest on the debt of RAO ES of the East, the company notes.

The Ministry of Energy reported that they sent a report to the president. The Ministry of Economic Development confirmed that "there are alternative sources of financing tariffs in the Far East, in addition to increasing the burden on consumers, which carries with it inflationary risks." If there are not enough dividends for compensation, then the premium for the wholesale market will have to be compensated for by refusing further liberalization of prices for hydropower capacity in the second price zone (Siberia), the Ministry of Energy points out in a letter (there they can sell under free contracts and not lower). to the tariff in 2015, 65% of capacity, by 2017, the share should increase to 100%). “This de facto means financing the tariffs of the Far East at the expense of RusHydro and Irkutskenergo,” they say in RusHydro. At Eurosibenergo (controlled by Irkutskenergo), they declined to comment.

The Ministry of Economic Development also proposed to reduce the construction of nuclear power plants for compensation, but the Ministry of Energy opposed: construction with inputs in 2016-2019 was half financed, and the effect of reducing projects at a low stage can only be expected from 2021.
