PRESS: Rosseti asks government to quadruple FGC UESТs tariff
MOSCOW, Jun 17 (PRIME) -- Russian state power grid holding Rosseti has suggested the government quadruple the tariff for direct consumers of Federal Grid Company of Unified Energy Systems (FGC UES), business daily Kommersant reported on Monday, citing a letter of the CEO to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak.
The measure is aimed at differentiating a flat tariff for distributive and main grids, except households, and at an even distribution of cross-subsidies to smaller consumers between the main and distributive grid users.
The measures offered in the letter is almost a copy of an earlier practice called Уlast mile,Ф in which territorial grid companies lease some of power equipment from Federal Grid Company of Unified Energy Systems (FGC UES), the manager of main transmission systems, to connect industrial customers, so they have to pay for power transmission services both to FGC UES and distribution grids. The practice was abolished in the majority of Russian regions in 2014, but is active until 2029 in four RussiaТs regions.
