Representatives of the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) had a meeting today with representatives of the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce, the American Chamber of Commerce in Kosovo and the Council of European Investors to discuss the circumstances and challenges that will arise for commercial customers connected at the 35 kV voltage level upon the opening of the electricity supply market.

The representatives of the Chambers requested from ERO to undertake all required legal actions in order to extend this deadline up to an indefinite term, until the creation of circumstances that would enable the liberalization of the electricity market.

The representatives of the chambers recalled the requests filed a year ago as well as ERO's decision to extend the deadline for liberalization for one year and emphasized that during the past twelve months no circumstances have changed which would allow the proper implementation of the legal acts which foresee the liberalization of the electricity market, namely the supply of commercial customers with electricity at unregulated tariffs. They have therefore requested from ERO to consider the requirements of the business community.

Upon this, representatives of ERO Board have emphasized that despite the challenges that customers may face, market opening is a legal obligation and should be in the interest of everyone.

ERO has ensured that its role in customer care will continue to be the same in the unregulated pricing market as well, monitoring all suppliers and ensuring that market rules are adhered to and customers are provided with appropriate services without discrimination.
