PRESS RELEASE – SERC ADOPTED DECISIONS ON DISTRIBUTION AND SUPPLY TARIFFS FOR BRČKO DISTRICT OF BIH Print


At the session of the State Electricity Regulatory Commission held on 22  December 2016 in Tuzla, following public hearings, decisions on tariffs for distribution services and electricity supply within universal service in the Brčko District of BiH were adopted, which will be applied as of 1 January 2017.

Neither the prices paid by customers for the distribution network utilisation nor average prices paid by all customers supplied within the universal service were changed by the adopted decisions. Cross-subsidies between commercial customers and households were reduced from 20% to 10%. With this, an average price for supply of commercial customers was reduced by 5.8 %, while the price for households increased by 2.8 %. This adjustment occurred due to the regulator’s obligation to gradually allocate actual respective costs to each customer category.

In the first half of 2016, households in the Brčko District of BiH had the lowest average electricity price in Bosnia and Herzegovina (12.62 fening/kWh). The new prices for households are 10.4% lower than those paid by customers of Elektroprivreda BiH, that is, 13.3% lower than those paid to Elektroprivreda HZHB, and 2.6% higher compared to households supplied by Elektroprivreda RS. Thus, the new prices for households are 5.6% lower than average prices for households in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
