Moldova approves a reduction of regulated electricity prices for households

Moldova’s National Agency for Energy Regulation (ANRE) has approved a reduction of regulated electricity prices for the supply of power to Moldovan final consumers. Tariffs will be reduced by 7% for residents of the central and southern parts of the Republic of Moldova and by 10% for residents of the north of the country.

Thus, household consumers served by Premier Energy (central and south Moldova) will pay MDL2.39/kWh (US$13c/kWh), which is 7% less than the current price, while households served by Furnizarea Energiei Electrice Nord will pay MDL2.88/kWh (US$16c/kWh), 10% less than the current price.

This reduction in electricity prices is the fourth implemented by the ANRE in 2023. They were brought by a sharp increase in electricity prices in Moldova, notably due to the conflict in Ukraine. In 2022, electricity prices for households soared by 71% to reach US$18.6c/kWh (they increased by 82% for industry at the same time).
