Electricity bill to decrease by 5 pc as of August


The electricity bill will decrease on average by 5 per cent as of August, following the postponement of the awarding by the state of a number of green certificates for renewable energy producers, and also due to the 1.3 per cent decrease in the price for the electricity supplied to end-consumers, announced in June by the National Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE), Agerpres reports. The Director of the ANRE’s Communication, Cooperation and Relation with Parliament Department, Marius Vladu told on Monday Agerpres that the value of the bill may decrease on average by 4 per cent due to postponing the trade in green certificates, but the percentage may be higher depending on the fluctuation of energy prices on the OPCOM. The ANRE is under the obligation to regulate, through annual quotas, the quantity of electricity from renewable sources, which will be taken over in the National Power Grid. Minister Delegate for Energy Constantin Nita said in mid-July that the value of electricity bills could be slashed by 7-8 per cent by the end of this year, due to altering the law on green certificates.
