Electricity price to rise in Armenia from August 1, 2015




The electricity tariff in Armenia will rise. The Public Services Regulatory Commission approved the 6.93 increase at today’s sitting. The decision comes into force from August 1, 2015.

On June 17 the Commission considered the application of the “Electric Networks of Armenia” CJSC filed on May 8, requesting a 17.08 AMD increase.

Thus, the daytime electricity price will rise to 48.78, while the nighttime price will reach 38.78 per 1 kWh.

No representatives of the “Electric Networks of Armenia” CJSC were present at the sitting that was accompanied by protests in front of the Commission headquarters.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
