Bulgaria Energy Commission Repeals Three-Month Electricity Billing

Date: 15.10.2008

Bulgaria's State Water and Energy Regulatory Commission abolished Tuesday the controversial three-month billing cycle, which was instituted in May by the electricity provider CEZ.

The Commission's decision to restore the one-month electricity billing in the areas supplied by CEZ in the western part of the country is also affecting the two other electricity providers EON and EVN, which intended to switch to three-month billing as well.

The three-month billing system instituted by the Czech-owned CEZ was met by public uproar as its clients suspected they were in fact subsidizing the company by paying projected interim bills for each first and second month of the three-month billing cycle.

"The main reason to abolish the three-month billing is the lack of confidence on part of the consumers towards this way to calculate their bills", the Deputy Chair of the Regulatory Commission Valentin Kirchev explained.

He added in his view a longer electricity billing period would be instituted eventually but that the public was still not ready to accept it.
