The price of electricity will remain unchanged until the end of the heating season, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said at a government meeting on 24 March.
According to him, the special period with preferential electricity prices was supposed to end on 1 April.
"That is why today the government has decided to extend it. The mechanism of the special obligation will continue to operate until 30 April this year. That is, the price of electricity, as we promised, will remain unchanged until the end of the heating season," Shmyhal said.
According to the Ministry of Energy, electricity tariffs for household consumers will remain at UAH 1.44/kWh (for households consuming up to 250 kWh per month) and UAH 1.68/kWh (if the monthly consumption exceeds 250 kWh).
