The cost of energy remained the same as in the previous months and amounted to 66 USD/MWh.
According to the schedule agreed upon by the parties, in November, Ciciurgan Power Station will supply about 257 thousand MWh to the right bank of the Dniester, which is more than 90% of the demand, excluding the CHPPs in Chisinau and Balti and renewable energy plants. During peak hours, if necessary, additional volumes of electricity will be delivered from producers in Ukraine and Romania, as well as on the Romanian exchange OPCOM.
During the winter, with the launch of CHPPs, which also produce electricity, the volume of electricity purchased from Ciciurgan Power Station will decrease to 230-250 thousand MWh, which will account for about 65% of the right bank’s energy system’s demand.
“The contract with Ciciurgan Power Station allows consumers on the right bank to have affordable tariffs compared to other countries in the region,” the Energy Ministry said.
