VSD: New distribution tariffs rules eliminate cross-subsidy
According to the company Vychodoslovenska Distribucna, those who do not fully use the capacity of the circuit breaker will no longer be subsidized by those who use it.
According to the company Vychodoslovenska Distribucna, the new rules laid down in the price decree of the Regulatory Office for Network Industries for the calculation of the distribution tariffs remove unsustainable and overcome cross-subsidy. A spokeswoman for the company, Andrea Danihelova, said that those who do not use the capacity of the circuit breaker will no longer be subsidized by those who use it. Every electricity consumer will be charged equally for the circuit breaker to access the low-voltage system, whether it is a house, garage, garden, cottage, used or unused connection capacity or a different point. Vychodoslovenska Distribucna admitted that structural changes in pricing led to an increased fee for a circuit breaker. The company says it is necessary to know whether this fee is only one of ten items of the final electricity price. The distribution company claims that although the fee for the circuit breaker increased, some price parts such as a variable price for electricity distribution and losses, as well as price of the power electricity, fell significantly.
