Removing the electricity payment in the north of the country, very little impact on the customer's pocket

The abolition of the billing of energy spent in the northern part of the country by the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) does not pose a big burden on regular consumers who have been charged for years.

So if a consumer has paid 10 € per month of electricity, now the bill will be 9.65 euros, with a discount of only 35 cents, if the customer has paid 20 euros of electricity for a month, now the bill will be 19.30 euro, with a discount of only 70 cents.

In order to avoid charging customers should also remove charges from commercial and technical losses.

Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) spokeswoman Adelina Murtezaj-Bajrami has confirmed to Telegrafi that consumers will pay 3.5 percent cheaper electricity bills.

But it has not shown whether customers who have paid off the electricity spent by residents in the northern part will be compensated without completing the ERO Board.
“According to ERO estimates on average, the energy bills drop by 3.5%. ERO has informed all institutions of the Court’s decision and has asked them to either create conditions for the licensed operator to exercise its functions under license conditions or to find other forms to cover the costs incurred from this failure, so as not to endanger the operation of the operator and the supply of electricity, “said ERO spokeswoman Adelina Murtezaj-Bajrami.

KEDS Spokesperson Viktor Buzhala told Telegrafi that they will apply the decision to ERO for termination of the billing of energy spent in the north on regular customer bills.

“It is the duty and obligation of KEDS and KESCO as actors of the energy chain in Kosovo to implement the decisions and policies of ERO, as we have done so far, and we will continue in the future. ERO has already made a decision about consumers in the northern part of the country and we will implement it fully “, Buzhala said.
