Electricity rates set to rise for second time in 2022

The value of coal, which provides 23% of Israel’s electrical energy, has practically doubled from $210 per ton to $380 per ton this yr.

Israel’s General public Utilities Authority (Energy) will meet up coming week to go over a hike in electrical power tariffs thanks to the huge price tag boost in coal. The Community Utilities Authority needs a price tag hike in July, in spite of the political pressures not to elevate selling prices.

Electrical energy price ranges are typically lifted as soon as a year and in January the electrical energy tariff for family consumption was greater 5.7%. But considering that then the rate of coal, which is even now utilised to develop 23% of Israel’s electrical power, has virtually doubled from $210 for each ton to $380 for each ton. The condition has been partly eased by the Ministry of Finance canceling excise tax on coal of NIS 105 for each ton, which will continue to be in effect right up until March 2023. Irrespective of this a rate hike is still desired to offset the increase in coal prices and resources in the electricity industry think that the hike could be as high as 15%.
