Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilita warned at the beginning of a government meeting that Moldova is affected by the energy crisis, and each additional MW of electricity “robs our pockets”.
“Right now we have a 20-30% power deficit after Cuciurgan suspended supplies. Thus, every additional MW robs our pockets. I want everyone to understand: we are buying under emergency contracts, and at the end of the month we will know the price and whether we can afford to pay the cost,” Gavrilita said, quoted by bani.md
Gavrilita said she understands that energy prices are hitting citizens’ pockets.
‘We may not be able to afford those prices. That’s why we urge to reduce our energy consumption. We can’t afford European prices when we don’t have long-term contracts. The more we save today, the cheaper it will be next month,” the Prime Minister said.
