ÚRSO states that PM Radičová might have gotten poor information on energy prices

When advised and briefed on energy price-setting, Prime Minister Iveta Radičová might have been misled, the Regulatory Office for Network Industries (ÚRSO) stated, as reported by the TASR newswire. "She may have not been provided with relevant background materials on ... electricity prices in Slovakia. In reality, both network fees and supply prices which are subject to the office’s regulation have decreased recently," said ÚRSO spokesman Miroslav Lupták on February 9 in response to Radičová's statements from February 7 when she had criticised a recent ÚRSO decision on electricity prices.

Radičová had said electricity prices had been allowed to increase inappropriately compared to the real (production and distribution) costs.

"These days, electricity prices in Slovakia should be going down, not up," Radičová told TASR on February 7.

In explaining its earlier decision, ÚRSO stated that it had to factor in the additional costs needed to secure electricity from renewable energy resources. Lupták noted that URSO has no power to influence the energy policy of the state and cannot influence the launching of projects that use renewable energy resources.
