Klitschko seeks to revive city-owned Kyivteploenergo, promises to install heat meters
Kyiv authorities seeks to start the demonopolization of the heat power market in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said on a radio station on Tuesday, his press service has reported.
"We intend to begin demonopolizing the heat power market in Kyiv. We seek to revive city-owned Kyivteploenergo created 10 years ago. We have carried out all the required preparatory work to launch the project," Klitschko said.
He said that the top priority task for Kyivteploenergo will be servicing of the heating network and heating equipment. Kyiv's City Council will decide on the volumes and zones for servicing.
Klitschko said that the concession agreement signed by Kyiv City Council and Kyivenergo will expire in 2017.
He said that by the start of the heating season all houses in Kyiv will be equipped with heat meters.
Klitschko said that the meters will help cut payments by 30%.
He said the Kyiv City Council is also focusing on energy saving.
