The electrical energy can grow more expensive again as the two power distributors asked the National Agency for Energy Regulation to review the electricity charges, IPN reports.
Premier Energy, which powers central and southern Moldova, asked a charge of 6.38 lei/kWh, up from 4.77 lei/kWh at present.
Furnizarea Energiei Electrice Nord, which serves consumers in the northern districts, sought a charge of 5.68 lei/kWh, up from the current charge of 4.81 lei/kWh.
The distributors argued that the power distribution tariffs increased recently and also that they incurred costs for the June imbalances and following lower energy sales.
The electricity charges have been raised four times so far this year. The last time the charges were increased at the beginning of November.
