Already after the heating season, which should end in April, the price of water and electricity may increase for Ukrainians.

Meanwhile, on March 16, 2023, the National Commission for State Regulation of Energy and Utilities (NKREKP), in response to a request from the "RBK-Ukraine" publication, reported on March 16, 2023, which utility services will definitely not increase in price while the war continues.

"According to the law, NERCP does not have the authority to set prices for natural gas," the message said.

In addition, the supply of natural gas is carried out at prices that are freely set between the supplier and the consumer.

At the same time, there may be exceptions in the legislation.

NCRECP is allowed, for example, to set or change tariffs for natural gas distribution services.

According to the Electricity Regulatory Commission, the price of natural gas for household consumers, condominiums, heat energy producers, if they use gas for the production of heat energy for the population and have entered into an agreement with DK Naftogaz of Ukraine, is not subject to increase and remains at the level of February 24, 2022 year

We will remind you that the National Commission has already published preliminary tariffs for centralized water supply and drainage.

It is expected that the tariffs will be increased in two stages: first on April 1 and again on July 1.

The cost of services increases by approximately 30% after the upgrade.

In Ukraine , electricity tariffs

may be doubled  .

This will make it possible to restore the infrastructure damaged by the occupiers.

However, the government has not yet announced options for price revisions.
