The Committee of the Council of the Federation for Budget and Financial Markets took the initiative to equalize electricity tariffs in the regions to the national average. Moreover, in areas where the cost of kilowatt hours was less, they promise not to increase the cost.

As they say "News", at the suggestion of the senators, a single policy in the field of electricity tariffs should work in the first half of 2021. The main task is to level them to the national average - 3,4 rubles per kWh.

From the new initiative, senators expect a reduction in prices to 50% and attract investment in the regions. In their opinion, this approach will most likely affect the subjects of the Far East, where the most expensive electricity is in Russia. For example, in the Magadan Region, Chukotka and Kamchatka, the average cost per kilowatt reaches eight rubles. In the Irkutsk region, electricity is many times cheaper - only 0,4 rubles per kilowatt.

It is planned to equalize such tariffs at the expense of state subsidies, but only partially. State regulation of the industry as a whole will also be increased.
