The branch “Energosbyt” recalls the introduction of amendments to the payment procedure for electricity supply services.

Decree of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus dated February 9, 2019 No. 81 amended and supplemented the decision of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus dated June 12, 2014 No. 571 “On approval of the Regulation on the procedure for settlements and payments for housing and communal services and fees for the use of premises State Housing Fund, making amendments and additions to the decisions of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus and their structural elements. ”

In accordance with the above changes, from January 1, 2019:
- the system of differentiated payment by the population of electric energy was canceled depending on the volume of consumption;
- the procedure for payment for electricity services was defined, including for the new tariff group “Electric energy used for heating and hot water supply in residential buildings (apartments) that are not equipped in the established manner with centralized heat and gas supply systems, if there is a separate (additional ) an individual meter for electric energy consumption for heating and hot water. "

Also, from March 1, 2019, charging for electricity supply services at state-subsidized tariffs (prices) is made in respect of residential premises in which citizens are registered at the place of residence, including those who are not owners (tenants) and (or) members of their family.

In order to resolve the issues of settlements for consumed electric energy from March 1, 2019, in case of incorrect application of the tariff, the energy supplying organization shall recalculate from the moment it is identified for the period:
- no more than three months, if the recalculation entails an additional charge for electricity supply services for previous periods;
- no more than three years, if the recalculation does not entail an additional charge for electricity supply services for previous periods.

In this case, the errors made by the subscriber of the energy supplying organization when making payments for electricity supply services and entailing the payment of an incomplete payment for the consumed electric energy are eliminated by the energy supplying organization without a subscriber’s statement from the moment of their identification for a period of not more than three years.
