We are talking about tariffs for heating housing with electricity - both private houses and apartments in apartment buildings.
This is a planned increase, which was announced at the end of last year, tut.by writes.
Belarusians who want to heat their homes with electricity can choose one of three tariffs. All of them will grow from June 1st.
The first option is a one-part tariff, which applies to both heating and all other needs. From June 1, this tariff will increase to 0.0909 rubles per 1 kWh (now it is 0.0894 rubles). In this case, you do not need to install a special separate heating meter. This tariff can be used by both owners of private houses and residents of apartment buildings. For example, if you spend 350 kWh per month, now the payment will be 31.29 rubles, and from June 1 - 31.82 rubles.
Another differentiated tariff is for two time periods. Like the one-part tariff, this one applies to both heating and all other needs. There is no need to install a special separate heating meter. During the period of minimum loads (from 23.00 to 6.00), the tariff from June 1 will be 0.0636 rubles per 1 kWh (now it is 0.0626 rubles). For the rest of the day from June 1, electricity will be calculated at a rate of 0.1182 rubles per 1 kWh (now 0.1162 rubles). If you spend 350 kWh per month (from 23.00 to 6.00), then now the payment will be 21.91 rubles, and from June 1 - 22.26 rubles.
Both the one-rate tariff and the differentiated tariff for two time periods were increased this year - from January 1.
The third option for those who want to heat their homes with electricity is to install an additional special meter, which now counts the electricity consumed for heating at a rate of 0.0374 rubles per 1 kWh (it has not been increased since January 1). From June 1, it will rise to 0.0398 rubles. This tariff is popularly called "three kopecks." In fact, it will turn into “four kopecks.” At the same time, the rest of the consumed electricity, including for cooking, washing, lighting at home, is calculated according to the second main meter and was paid according to one of the existing tariffs - in terms of volume or time of consumption.
