Ukrainians will pay for light in a different way: new payment orders and contracts

Ukraine is gathered to introduce new rules of payment for the electric power
Since the beginning of 2019 in Ukraine the first stage of reform of the electricity market starts. Since January 1 services to consumers will be provided by two separate companies - the operator of distributive systems and the supplier.

First will be engaged only in distribution of electric energy and operation of power supply networks. The second will deliver the electric power to consumers and also to be responsible for charge of payments and calculations.

For transition to a new system, to Ukrainians will have to renew contracts under which they since February-2019 will begin to receive new payment orders. And since November people will be transferred to a new system and there will be already two contracts: about provision of services on distribution and about deliveries of electric energy.

For resigning of contracts is optional to fill and send the application for accession personally. There is a simplified procedure, it is possible to continue to use services and to pay bills. In this case the consumer will automatically join services of the company supplier of electric energy, the format of the contract is established by the state and is standard for all.

"The state provided the simplified procedure of accession to public contracts. For natural persons they will come into force automatically. It is not necessary to submit applications or to physically sign contracts. It is necessary only to continue to pay the bill in the habitual way. It guarantees stable provision of services. Consumers will receive the first updated accounts for the electric power in February. It will be one general payment order in which two separate lines - with the account for services of distribution and for electrical supply services will appear. Payment of the account will be considered as payment for services to both companies. By the way, the same scheme of formation of accounts is applied also in Europe", - the expert Victor Melnikov told.

Also since February 1 will change appearance of the receipt. Ukrainians will begin to receive one payment document with new details. Therefore, if the consumer pays bills through bank or Internet banking, it is necessary not to forget to expose the updated details.

"In a system the Private office and electronic payment service providers data will change automatically. It will be possible to transmit meter readings, as before, through the Private office, by phone number of call center 18-55, in an online chat on the page of Facebook of DTEK the Kiev power supply networks or other habitual ways", - the press service of DTEK specified the Kiev power supply networks.

If at the consumer is registered an overpayment on the electric power, it is promised to be included in new accounts automatically. In the receipt there will be two separate lines: "for distribution services" and "for electrical supply services". Division of a tariff for two columns - the European practice, and it does not influence a tariff, experts calm.

C of 2019 of consumers wait for generally cosmetic changes which will concern contracts and a format of payment orders. It will not concern tariffs, only appearance is quits
