From January 1 next year, the new service tariffs of the JSC “Gaso” natural gas distribution system will enter into force, which stipulates that the fixed portion will be dependent on 22% and the variable portion will be dependent on all users. Natural gas consumption, according to the “Gazo” tariffs provided by the Public, has been accepted today by the service regulation commission (SPRK) to be in accordance with the methodology.
In the new tariffs, which will come into effect on January 1, 2023, changes are foreseen for all user groups for the variable and fixed part and the periodic distribution tariff. The tariffs will be valid for the tariff period up to 31 December 2023.
Changes in distribution service tariffs are related to the significant increase in the price of natural gas as well as the significant decrease in the amount of natural gas delivered to users.
KYB President Alda Özola states that the rapid increase in natural gas prices affects “Gaso” both by increasing the cost and losses of technological consumption and by contributing to the decrease in consumption. He states that this set of factors satisfies the criteria that give “Gasso” the right to revise tariffs and approximate them to economically justified actual costs.
The fixed part of the tariffs or the connection fee will increase by 22% for all user groups, while the increase in the variable part of the tariffs is different for each consumption group as it is affected by the three-year average natural change. gas consumption of each tariff group. The changes will also affect seasonal tariff consumers, who consume 85 percent of the natural gas volume between 1 May and 30 November.
On the other hand, the impact of “Gaso” tariff changes on the final bill of users or households affiliated with “Latvijas gāze” JSC will be relatively small.
Taking into account the household tariffs for the first half of 2023 published by “Latvijas gāze” on December 9 in the official publication “Latvijas Vēstnesis”, which also includes the new “Gaso” tariffs, monthly payment for users of natural gas cooking is 1.53 euros or 14%, while for users using natural gas for heating – 4.50 euros or 2%.
KYB invites you to use the tariff calculator on the “Latvijas gaše” website to find out exactly what the monthly price of natural gas consumed by a particular household will be when the new tariffs come into effect.
Changes in the service tariffs of the “Gaso” distribution system will also affect other natural gas system users, including heat supply business merchants, who will be included in the new costs at the next tariff review.
Gaso’s differentiated natural gas system service tariff calculation and justification for the new tariffs were submitted to the PUK on 24 November and published in the official publication “Latvijas Vēstnesis” on 25 November.
