Flexible Mechanism Needs To Be Introduced through Which Regulatory Body To Set "Obligation to Society" Fee

 “Proposals concerning amendments to the Energy Act were made at the meeting yesterday,” said Delyan Dobrev, MP with mandate-holder Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) and Chairperson of the committee on energy with Bulgaria’s National Assembly, speaking at a meeting with employers, representatives of trade unions, and representatives of parliamentary groups over electricity price hikes, FOCUS News Agency reported.
“There are no proposals made yet as there should be coordination among the parties [involved]. The first proposal concerns the renewable energy sources (RES) sector for the preferential price to be restricted to produced electricity. Legislation at present says additional electricity is paid for by the National Electricity Company (NEK) at the price of the [energy] mix. On the strength of the new decision of the regulatory body the price will be 115 leva, not  125 leva. The second proposal concerns projects financed with gratuitous aid – under the rural areas programme,” Dobrev explained.
In his words, the preferential price should be calculated excluding gratuitous aid to avoid double financing and they will table amendments not allowing it.
According to the lawmaker, as regards payment of the "obligation to society" fee for exported electricity, it was distributed among end consumers in the country through legislative amendments under the government of Plamen Oresharski, while business was relieved of it.
Delyan Dobrev said there was a proposal for a flexible mechanism to be introduced through which the regulatory body to set "obligation to society" fee.
