No electricity price rise due to nuclear energy this year
The fee for decommissioning nuclear facilities and nuclear waste remains unchanged at 3.21 euros per MWh from 1 July 2016.
The Slovaks also contribute to the nuclear disposal, a so-called back-end fuel cycle, via their electricity bills. The fee for decommissioning nuclear facilities and nuclear waste changes every year starting from July based on last year’s inflation. This year, electricity price will not increase due to higher fee for the nuclear waste disposal. „Based on core inflation coefficient published by the Statistics Office for the previous year at 0.0%, the levy for supplied electricity remains unchanged at 3.21 euros per MWh from 1 July 2016,“ informed the chairman of Council of Administrators of the National Nuclear Fund, Ladislav Ehn.
