Tariffs in the Far East will be equalized to the average Russian level in two or three years - Alexander Galushka

Following the results of the meeting of the president with members of the government, the head of the Ministry of National Economy of the Russian Federation Alexander Galushka told reporters that Tariffs for electricity in the Far East are planned to be brought to the average Russian level within two to three years

Tariffs in the Far East will be equalized to the average Russian level in two or three years - Alexander Galushka
“Tariffs in the Far East will be equalized to the average Russian level in two to three years,” said A.Galushka.

He specified that currently the average tariff in the macroregion is 3,19 rubles per kWh, Interfax notes.

The calculations made jointly by FAS Russia and Minskostokzvitiya show that in this period in different regions of the Far East the tariffs will be reduced by the amount from 5 to 65%. "To date, the average Russian tariff for electricity is 3,19 ruble per 1 kWh. The leveling of the tariff by the average Russian level will occur annually, the corresponding calculations will also occur annually, "said Alexander Galushka.

To reduce tariffs in the Far Eastern regions to the average Russian level, a complex of sources and mechanisms will be involved, all of which are not related to the use of budgetary funds. The main sources are a surcharge for consumers of the wholesale electricity and capacity market, as well as funds from the liberalization of the price of hydroelectric power in Siberia.

Other areas that may contribute to the reduction of tariffs in the Far East and which will necessarily be involved are the optimization of prices for the purchase of fuel for the production of electrical energy; optimization of investment programs for power engineers in the Far East; strengthening of control over the order of consideration and adoption of tariff decisions; development and stimulation of generating facilities operating on the basis of the use of renewable energy sources in the Far East.

According to calculations prepared jointly by FAS Russia and Minskostokzvitiya, the growth of tariffs for final consumers of the rest of Russia in connection with the leveling of tariffs in all regions of the Far East will not exceed 1,3%. It is important that this growth will be made not simultaneously, but during 2-3 years. At the same time, tariffs for the population will not change, according to the Ministry of Regional Development.

In turn, the head of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, Alexander Novak, also confirmed that the tariff will be brought to the average Russian level in stages.

“In general, tariff decisions will be made that will allow gradually bringing tariffs in the Far East in line with the average Russian level,” A. Novak said.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin called unacceptable the situation when in one of the country's regions electricity tariffs are several times higher than the price of electricity in other regions.
