Sakhalin residents against social security standards of electricity consumption

Social norms of electricity consumption in the framework of the execution of the Government of the Russian Federation №614 tentatively calculated the Ministry of Energy and Housing Sakhalin region. The public of the region strongly opposed these norms.

Dmitry Kan, Deputy Minister of the Regional Ministry of Energy and Housing and Utilities, said at a round table meeting on this topic that the RF Government’s decree had not been canceled, and therefore the regional authorities are preparing for the start of the social rules from July 1 on July 2014.

Given the harsh weather conditions of the Sakhalin region and the isolation of the power system, the Sakhalin authorities conducted more 800 calculations and prepared preliminary social norms for energy consumption for various categories of citizens: from 250 kWh per month for a single person to 750 for a family of 5 people living in 4- room apartment.

D.Kan stressed that these socnorms are higher than those recommended by the government of the Russian Federation, but they are still preliminary, as the calculations continue. The participants of the round table - representatives of political parties and public organizations - unanimously opposed the introduction of social standards for energy consumption.

According to their data, the population of the region due to high tariffs for electricity and housing and utilities services and so it saves on energy consumption. The meeting participants recommended Sakhalin Obldume to follow the example of the 11 parliaments of the North-West Federal District and turn to the Russian government with a request to cancel the decree introducing social norms, which, in their opinion, in any case will lead to a social explosion.
