“Deloitte and Touche” international consulting company prepared the report of the consulting service 1st round on the regulation of Armenian energetic sector. “We analyzed the situation in Armenia, when the only energy supplier of the country appeared on the verge of default, which was basically conditioned by the discrepancy of the predictions of the system Operator and the loading of powers. Electricity generating companies already noticed the deficit of funds in the company, which will lead to the threat for the entire energy system in short period. The decision of the regulatory body to increase electricity tariff is considered as proved in such conditions”, reads the report. It is mentioned, that the tariff of the electricity increased a total of four times for the final consumers of Armenia during the last 15 years. In 2009 it increased by 24 percent and a total of three times from 2013­2015. Moreover, during the last three years total growth of the tariff (70%) exceeded the inflation by 4 times. According to the decision of PSRC, the population must pay 48.8 drams for every electricity kwh, and the consumers of the trade sector must pay from 33,3 to 45,8 drams depending on the used voltage.”
