It's Final: Electricity in Bulgaria 5% Cheaper Aug 1

Bulgaria's State Commission for Energy and Water Regulation, DKEVR, announced late Monday evening its final decision on electricity prices, which shall enter into force on August 1.

Customers of the three power utilities will pay an average of 5% less per kWh.

The cost of daytime electricity fell by between 4.12% and 4.9% for the three power utilities, while nighttime energy will be by 3.43% to 6.82% cheaper effective August 1.

Final electricity prices for household customers of CEZ Bulgaria, serving the western parts of the country, including network services are BGN 0.15 per kWh during the day and BGN 0.09 for the night tariff, as will be the price of electricity for customers of EVN Bulgaria, serving the southern parts.

Electricity prices for customers of Energo-Pro in eastern Bulgaria, including network services, will be BGN 0.16 per kWh for daytime energy and BGN 0.9 per kWh during the night.

These prices reflect minor adjustments to the ones previously proposed by DKEVR's work group and are slightly higher.
