“According to the NEURC Resolution 572 of 07.04.2021, a supplier cannot raise the price of the base annual offer. In this instance, the regulator can investigate the situation and penalize the company, based on complaints from the supplier’s customers or on the results of its own market monitoring,” DiXi Group expert Viktoria Tkachuk explains.
Gas Company LLC received a gas supplier’s license on 26 November 2019. The company is registered in the Rivne Oblast.
It is worth reminding that Gasotheque is an instrument of comparing gas prices for household consumers. The idea of this service was conceived by DiXi Group, which also helps implement this project.
Today, this service offers up-to-date information in a convenient form about price offers from natural gas suppliers, available in a particular region. It also allows to compare prices and evaluate potential benefits from changing a supplier during one year.
The Gasotheque website contains consumer testimonials about performance of gas supply companies.
As reported earlier, in order to mitigate fluctuations in the gas market the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission (NEURC) adopted a resolution introducing annual gas tariffs effective 1 May 2021.
For the duration of annual contract, the price can be changed only by lowering it. The price cannot be raised versus the one set as of 25 April. At the same time, suppliers can offer any other products for consumers. In addition, consumers have the option of changing a supplier.
