Bulgaria: DSO companies EVN, CEZ and Energo-Pro seek electricity price increase, SEE Energy News
The report of the Bulgarian Regulatory Commission for Energy DKEVR proposes increasing the electricity price for the end consumers at an average of 2 percent, from July 1st. The Regulatory body will discuss this proposal on June 4th, and decision should be adopted by the end of the month.
The document shows that CEZ, which services the electric distribution system of Western Bulgaria, and Energo-Pro, which operates in the northeast of the country, require a price rise of 25 percent in the night tariff.
At the same time, CEZ requires that the daily rate price increases by 10 percent, while Energo-Pro seeks an increase of 3 percent. Austrian EVN, which supplies southern Bulgaria, proposed an increase of 3.6 percent.
However, the report predicts regulatory agencies significantly lower percentage price increase – 1.53 percent for customers of CEZ, 3.64 for users of Energo-Pro and 1.22 percent for customers of EVN.
