ÚRSO: Energy prices to be cut, especially for businesses

The Office for Regulation of Network Industries (ÚRSO) announced a noticeable drop in charges for energy distribution on Monday, July 1. ÚRSO head Jozef Holjenčík said that energy prices should be most significantly reduced in the foreseeable future mainly for companies. The reduction will be possible due to cuts in energy distribution charges.

The Office for Regulation of Network Industries (ÚRSO) announced a noticeable drop in charges for energy distribution on Monday, July 1. ÚRSO head Jozef Holjenčík said that energy prices should be most significantly reduced in the foreseeable future mainly for companies. The reduction will be possible due to cuts in energy distribution charges.

"Energy charges will fall considerably. This will have a significant impact chiefly on the industrial sector. We expect that the drop will be a two-digit figure. Of course, this will also influence households," disclosed Holjenčík as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The Sme daily wrote that ÚRSO is considering introducing a new additional charge for energy producers in Slovakia in exchange for access to the electricity network, which the companies use to distribute energy directly to their consumers. This will help the announced reductions, among other measures that constitute a whole package. The changes are expected as of the beginning of 2014.

Holjenčík also announced, as quoted by the SITA newswire, that prices of gas will not be changed for the time being.
