The price of electricity for households in Serbia went up yesterday by 3.9%, which will increase monthly electricity bills by an average of 100 to 150 dinars.
The price of electricity has been the same for more than two years and this increase was approved by the Energy Agency which says that, even after the increase, the electricity price in Serbia is still among the lowest in the region.
The price of electricity in Serbia is 7.2% lower than in Macedonia, up to 18.9% lower than in Bosnia and Herzegovina, 24% lower than in Albania, 35.8% lower than in Bulgaria, 79.97% lower than in Croatia, 85% lower than in Romania, and 125% lower than in Slovenia.
Minister Aleksandar Antic announced an increase in electricity last month, noting the electricity price for businesses and industrial facilities would remain the same.
“The last time the price of electricity increased significantly was in 2015; in 2016 and 2017, there was a minimal correction, while in 2018 and 2019, there were no price hikes,” said Antic.
“We have accepted the requests from energy companies in terms of the price increase. The increased share of renewable energy sources in the grid and a significant increase in electricity prices in the global market have prompted us to increase the electricity price in Serbia,” explained the Minister earlier.
