Our Tariffs

According to the Russian legislation (FST Decree #20-e/2 dd. 06.08.2004) energy transmission tariffs are set forth as united for all consumers of one voltage class, located on the constituent territory of the federation and belonging to the same group (category), irrespective to which grids they are connected to. We are the holder of united (boiler) grid tariffs in the Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk and Perm regions. “Boiler” tariffs:

  • Are calculated from payments for energy transmission, according to the contracts, forwarded to the only grid company – IDGC of Urals, ОАО;
  • Enter expenses for energy transmission by FSK and all grids located in the region;
  • Are applied for the settlement of payments between IDGC of Urals and providers of last resort, utility companies, retail suppliers and other customers, being wholesale market participants or those who concluded purchase-and-sale contracts with generators or other energy suppliers.

If we view average transmission tariffs in dynamics, we shall see a positive trend. During the reported period average tariff increase was rather high and totaled 39.6% on 2009. This significant growth was due to recession that resulted in the decrease of productive supply (-15.7% on 2009). At the same time required gross revenues (RGR) grew by 17.8%. In 2011 transmission tariff grew by 15.6% while RGR grew by 20% on 2010.

Our average maintenance rate in 2010 grew by 42.7%, in 2011 – by 15.2% on the previous year. Our total RGR for maintenance in 2011 is calculated and approved by RAB method, the increase on 2010 totaling 19.6%.

The key factor that determined the increase of RGR for maintenance is investment component growth. If investment expenses (depreciation, profit capex) in 2011 increase up to RUR 7 328 mln. (+31.2% on 2010), there is an increase of the share in maintenance by 9.7%. Generally, in 2011 the growth of expenses for maintenance, approved by the regulators, totaled 19.6% on 2010 (in 2010 – 20.3% on 2009). At the same time 2010 average inflation rate totaled 8.8%, 2011 target forecast provided by the Ministry of Economic Development is 7.9%.
