Local renewable energy companies announce Japanese strike

A group of renewable energy companies of the Republic of Moldova announced Japanese strike. This way, they want to warn about their difficult situation now that they have to sell the electricity the produce to only two distributors that have a monopoly. They accuse the state of not providing solutions. One of the solutions is to ensure Energocom purchases electricity from local producers in a centralized way.

“We are forced by the situation to announce Japanese strike nationwide. All the producers are solidary and we announce a Japanese strike for being heard. The last solution is to turn off these installations as they generate only losses. The authorities created a mechanism for wind power and photovoltaic sources as a trap. So, they state they are interested, but when you start to produce and feed power back into the national grid, you see that it is a trap,” lawyer Vitalie Malai said in a news conference staged by IPN. He represents a group of over 30 renewable energy companies that produce electricity from renewable, wind power and photovoltaic sources.

Sergiu Moraru, the representative of a renewable energy company, said things can be improved if Energocom buys power from them in a centralized way. This is legal, normal and logical. The two distributors that have a monopoly in Moldova mimic the negotiations and offer a too low price, of about 1 leu. This happens at a time when the local producers are banned from exporting the electricity they produce.

“Given that a large part of our citizens cannot pay the bills according to these European prices, I refer to the socially deprived categories, we, the producers of renewable energy, as a gesture of solidarity offer our power – over 20 million kW – to the state-run company Energocom” at the price of 1.5 lei/kWh plus 1.05 leu for its transmission and this can sell it then for 2.5 lei/kWh to families in need. Over 300,000 citizens can benefit from such a concession,” stated Vasile Apostol, who produces energy from wind power.

Zinaida Plămădeală, of a renewable energy company, said they knocked at so many doors and had so many discussions, but no decisions aimed at solving the problems have been taken. “We are now in the situation in which we need to directly address Missis Gavrilița (Premier Natalia Gavrilița) as she, as the head of the Commission for Exceptional Stations, should address and solve this problem. We ask you to become involved directly. Let’s have a meeting and we will present to you our solutions,” stated Zinaida Plămădeală.

Japanese strike is when each employee wears a white armband without stopping work.
