The Macedonian government decided to launch a tender for the selection of a new universal electricity supplier. The government said in a statement that the universal supplier would provide electricity supply to households and small commercial consumers located in the area for which there is an obligation to ensure universal service and those who have chosen to be supplied by it.
The documentation for the upcoming public call is currently being prepared. However, the government has not disclosed when the call will be launched. According to the law, the universal supplier is obliged to ensure service for no more than five years.
Austrian company EVN is the current universal supplier, fulfilling its five-year contract.
