Cross-subsidization in Yakutia requires additional funds

The head of Yakutia, Yegor Borisov, suggested that the Russian government consider the issue of allocating 5,5 billion rubles to the republic to eliminate cross-subsidization in the local electric power industry. As reported on the official website of E. Borisov, for this he proposes to prepare a draft decision of the Government of the Russian Federation on amending the federal law "On the federal budget for 2014 and for the planning period of 2015 and 2016" and in the state program of the Russian Federation "Energy efficiency and energy development" ...

It is noted that the “boiler” principle is applied in the region when forming electricity tariffs. “Industrial consumers offset the costs of diesel power, in the tariff for electricity for industrial consumers the amount of cross-subsidization is 36%. At the same time, the volume of cross-subsidization is growing annually, in 2014, it will amount to 5,6 billion rubles, which is 1,7 times the level of 2010 of the year (3,3 billion rubles), ”the statement reads.

In addition to large-scale projects in the field of energy supply, the head of Yakutia suggested paying special attention to the development of local energy, which today also has many problems.

Finance Minister Anton Siluanov instructed to create a working group to solve this problem.

Cross-subsidization is the practice of price fixing at a level that exceeds the total average cost of producing goods and services in a particular industry due to the redistribution of price load among different groups of consumers.
