Possibility for One-Month Postponement of Electricity and Heat Pricing Period Approved Provisionally

The parliamentary committee monitoring the Energy and Water Regulatory Commission (EWRC) approved on first reading amendments to the transitional and final provisions of the Energy Act aiming to make it possible for the electricity and heat pricing period to be postponed by a month. Apart from three abstentions, the committee vote was all in favour of the amendments.
Valentin Nikolov (GERB), whose party has moved the bill, said the intended postponement is aimed to allow EWRC to consider new aspects of pricing. Nikolov expects that an ordinance relaxing the conditions for industrial plants liable to pay a green electricity charge will be conclusively approved in July after its scope is enlarged.
Iskren Vesselinov (Patriotic Front), who chairs the parliamentary committee monitoring EWRC, explained that the proposed amendments are intended as a one-time change applying only to the pricing period from July 1, 2015.
