Unpopular thoughts on the price of electricity
Alexey GavrilovHead of the Information Policy Department of JSC Kamchatskenergo
Alexey Gavrilov, head of the information policy department of OJSC Kamchatskenergo:
All Kamchatka insists that the most expensive electricity here. And precisely because of this, the region is an outsider in the development of its own economy. It is understood that the rapid increase in the cost of electricity occurred in the post-perestroika times, and the responsibility for this lies with A. Chubais.
Let's talk about the cost of electricity through the prism of the interests of ordinary inhabitants of the peninsula. In Soviet times, electricity in Kamchatka cost 4 pennies. It was a good lucrative tariff, ensuring the progressive development of the Kamchatka energy complex. Individual consumption (because of weak electric equipment of apartments with individual household appliances) was then low, somewhere within 150 kilowatts per two-room apartment for a family of three (I interviewed veterans of the power company and took data in the tariff department). It turns out that people paid 6 rubles per month. At the end of the institute (my scholarship was 64 rub.) I came to work as a teacher in school. My salary at the initial stage was 120 rubles (surcharges still had to be earned). That is, the payment for electricity was 1 / 20 from my salary.
Today, a teacher in Kamchatka, who came to work at school after graduation, receives a salary of 20-22000 rubles at first. Let's take for the purity of the experiment to calculate the average - 21000 rubles. As a result, we get again, as in Soviet times, 1/20 of his salary.
We carried out similar calculations, taking for comparison the salary of my wife, a doctor who also started working in Kamchatka, and the salary of a young doctor who recently came to work in her clinic. The ratio also turned out to be equal.
I think that if you try to make comparisons for people of other professions in such a scheme, they will get exactly the same equal or almost equal proportions in the parallel "Soviet Russia-Capitalist Russia".
