The number of block tariffs and the threshold for consumption of each of the block tariffs in high electricity consumption has not been defined yet, while the Energy and Water Services Regulatory Commission (KRRE) is open for all remarks that will reach the system. new tariff for universal supplier.

All dilemmas regarding escalating charging will be considered in the analysis.

This was ordered in the second public forum for the new tariff system for the universal supplier that was held today at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies (FETI) organized by the Association of Engineers and Technicians MAKO SIGRE, an association which operates for more than 20 years in the field of electricity.

"The four-block tariff model gives better mathematical results, ie as much as possible households have lower costs for electricity compared to this decision and shows that 87 percent in winter and 92 percent in summer will to have smaller bills.

"The four-block concept has been chosen because it gives better results for now, but if it is proven that there will be better results with one block more or less, it is not disputable, even from the implementation point of view, there will be no problem." , said the president of KRRE, Marko Bislimovski.

He warned that public debates would continue, if necessary, for everyone to have their say.

"Any remarks from both citizens and professionals will be reviewed.

"All the dilemmas that consumers have and have submitted regarding the escalated charging will be taken into account in the analysis," Bislimovski said.

Professor Rubin Talevski from FETI reiterated that most households consume 300 to 700 kilowatt hours of electricity per month in winter and slightly less in summer and only one percent consume more than 3000 kilowatt hours.

With the new type of tariff, as he added, 93 percent of consumers will be in the tariff of the first and second block, so they consume up to 210 or 211 up to 420 kilowatt hours of electricity and for them electricity will be cheaper or within the current price.

In the third block with consumption from 521 to 630 kilowatt hours are 4 percent of households, and in the fourth with consumption over 630 kilowatt hours of electricity are 3 percent of consumers.

For them the price will be higher.

"If we take the price of electricity in low tariff to be one in the first block in high tariff would be 1.11, in the second block in high tariff would be 1.7, in the third block 2, 3, while in the fourth block the price in the high tariff would be 2.89 ", specified Talevski.

The pre-billing period would be 30 days which, as he said, shows that in the first block the average daily consumption at high tariff - expensive electricity, would be 7 kilowatt hours, in the second block 14, in the third 21 and the fourth 21 kilowatts per hour.

As Talevski pointed out, from Monday on the ERC website will be available a web calculator where citizens will be able to calculate how much their bill will be if they enter how many kilowatts of electricity they consumed in the low and high tariff, ie expensive and cheap electricity.

As Talevski pointed out, from Monday on the KRRE website, a web calculator will be available in which citizens will be able to calculate how much their bill will be if they show how many kilowatts of electricity they have spent at the cheap fee and the expensive fee.

The main purpose of setting the escalated tariff is to form block tariffs which will stimulate reduction of electricity consumption during the high daily tariff, while stimulating greater consumption at the low overnight tariff, and thus household protection is provided electricity consumption is within the average consumption in the state.

This way of charging, as they say from KRRE, will ensure correct access, ie those who spend significantly larger amounts of electricity than average consumption, will pay a higher price.

Block tariffs will apply only in periods of high daily loads (from 07:00 to 22:00), while in periods of low daily loads (from 22:00 to 07:00) and the same price will apply on Sunday.
