In order to support citizens in connection with the long-term increase in the prices of energy resources, the Ministry of Economy will request that the mandatory purchase component (OMK) not be included in electricity bills not only this year, but also next year. Economy writer Ilze Indriksone explained in an interview with TVNET’s online magazine KLIK.
After the previous heating season, it was concluded that not including the HAE component in bills was an effective way to help both residents and entrepreneurs.
“OKI intends not to be included in the bill, not compensation. We have informed our cooperation partners about such a proposal and there will be decisions in the near future. We see that it is a very effective and good way.
Therefore, HAE may no longer appear on invoices this year and next.”
He informed the Minister of Economy.
On the other hand, “Distribution grid” components that were compensated in the previous heating season or not included in household bills will continue to be paid for by the households themselves. Indriksone explained that it aims to directly support companies by not including this component in bills this heating season.
“We are planning to support entrepreneurs directly in this way. This is the easiest way for entrepreneurs to do this. There are other support measures for the heating season of households, among which we hope that the increased rate will be implemented quickly and well. Then the target of this support will be a much larger share of housing costs. they can afford it,” he said.
