Director of power programs of the Razumkova Center: To provide the Luhansk thermal power plant with gas, it is necessary either to raise price of electricity, or to lower a tariff of Ukrgidroenergo

Situation in the Luhansk thermal power plant critical as her tariff was counted proceeding from the cost not of gas, and coal which transportation was blocked by Rossiiya, the director of power programs of the Center Razumkova Vladimir Omelchenko has said.

the National commission which is carrying out state regulation in spheres of power and utilities (NKREKP) can save a part of the Luhansk region controlled by Ukraine from blackout, the director of power programs of the Center of Razumkov Vladimir Omelchenko in the comment has said the UNIAN.

"I think what is valid, there are two options. The first option is just to reconsider the wholesale and retail price towards increase. It is one of options. Other option is to look at possibilities of decrease in a tariff of Ukrgidroenergo as they carry out investment programs. These are two options which, in my opinion, NKREKP has to consider to solve a critical situation with work of the Luhansk thermal power plant. I think that it would be absolutely logical step, that for the autumn and winter period when the situation with purchase of energy carriers is especially sensitive, for this period, probably, it is expedient to reconsider a tariff for Ukrgidroenergo and investment programs to delay more remote period. I consider that it can be one of the main options of a solution too. I don't say that it is the best option, but one of options, it has to be considered by NKREKP too", - Omelchenko considers.

It has emphasized that the tariff of thermal power plant was counted, proceeding from coal cost, but she will be forced to pass to more expensive gas.

"Though are said by some experts that coal cost very high, on a so-called formula of Rotterdam, but if to buy gas for thermal power plants, then it will turn out much more expensively. If we take that the Luhansk thermal power plant requires monthly 60 million cubic meters of gas, it turns out more than 700 million hryvnias", - the director of power programs of the Razumkova Center has counted.

the Luhansk thermal power plant is located near the occupied Luhansk, in the city Happiness which in 2014 was exempted from the pro-Russian formations. Fighters periodically fire at the city. the Enterprise lacks

coal because of blockade of the only branch line by Russia therefore it will be forced to pass to gas that will increase electric power cost more than three times, the vice-chairman of the Luhansk military civil authorities Yury Klimenko has told on October 31. Supply of coal from Russia has stopped, the last shipment of 6,8 thousand tons of anthracite was on October 11. Klimenko has noted that because of this situation there can be problems with power supply of the region.

coal Reserves by thermal power plant were reduced to critical 7 thousand tons that will last for four days of work, the UNIAN writes. The agency has reported that on October 31 the Cabinet recommended to NKREKP to establish additional payment for Vostokenergo to cover the increased expenses of the Luhansk t
