The energy crisis has not cost 170 million euros so far. Minister of Economy KreshnikBekteshi informed that 120 million Euros have been transferred from the state budget to ESM to deal with the electricity and heating crises, and with the latest decision of the Government they will receive an additional 47 million Euros. With this money the state power plants should buy electricity, coal and to cover the losses of MEPSO.

The latest decision of the Government, which enabled EVN to settle the invoices for purchased electricity from ESM with deferred payment, raised the question of whether the citizens will be allowed to pay their electricity bills with a grace period of 6 months. Bekteshi explains that the state cannot intervene for such an opportunity.

“Such decisions in accordance with the announcement of the decision to declare a state of crisis are not overlooked in the Decree and the Energy Law. They are bilateral agreements that consumers make with EVN or other electricity traders if they are on the free market. The most important thing is that we have made great efforts for the bills, especially for households and small consumers, not to exceed 9.5%, if we compare them with the previous 6 months,” said Bekteshi.

If the electricity crisis is prolonged, Bekteshi informed that it is possible that the VAT for household electricity will remain at 5%.
