Bulgaria's Energy Regulator Fines Electricity Providers CEZ, E.ON

Date: 09.12.2008

Bulgaria's State Commission for Energy and Water Regulation (DKEVR) decided Monday to impose a BGN 20 000 fine on each of the two electricity providers CEZ and E.ON.

The fines are imposed because the electricity companies have not obeyed DKEVR's regulation stating that they are not allowed to charge more than BGN 19 for re-connecting to the electricity distribution network.

Other additional services such as registration of new household as an electricity consumer were supposed to be free of charge in the whole country.

CEZ and E.ON, however, have been charging their clients considerably higher prices for such services. CEZ's re-connecting fee is presently BGN 40.

Both companies have replied to the DKEVR in written that they were not going to abide by the maximum fee requirement, and would therefore have to pay the BGN 20 000 fines.

The Czech-owned CEZ is the electricity provider in Western Bulgaria, and the German-owned E.ON is the electricity provider in the northeast part of the country.
