In the current heating season for hot water and heat Ukrainians will pay 15% more than last year.
About this on air of the program “Right to vote” on ГолосTV co-Chairman of the energy strategies Foundation Dmytro Marunych.
The expert recalled that during the meeting with the IMF Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman failed negotiations on prices for natural gas. From this we can make an assumption about the growth of prices for housing utility services.
“We expect increase of tariffs for gas approximately on 23%, respectively, this will lead to growth of tariffs for hot water and heating by about 15% since the beginning of the heating season. Although not the fact that NKREKU so quickly will make the decision, and the losses will fall on the suppliers of heat and hot water. Then in April, roughly after the end of the heating season, 80% of import parity, and then from 2020 will be 100% import parity”, – said Dmitry Marunych.
For electricity the forecast is also bad, the expert said.
“If the electricity market and will earn next year, according to some estimates, the tariff for the population in relation to the current rate could rise somewhere three times”, – concluded Dmitry Marunich.
Recall the 2018-2019 heating season in Kyiv started on Monday, 15 October, said the Deputy Chairman of the Kyiv city state administration Petr Panteleyev.
According to officials, the connection of houses to heat supply will occur within two weeks. First heat will be run in the public sector buildings, i.e. kindergartens, hospitals and educational institutions.
