At the same time, according to him, it is possible to enter social rationing of energy consumption only after careful calculations. "Now the majority of the countries refuse from intersections in favor of more address social help. I understand that it sharply can't be done, but it is necessary to avoid cross subsidizing, at the same time to people who can't really pay, it is necessary to help according to the scheme of the social address help. And for a transition period, - yes, can be, we and should enter social rationing, but here, I will repeat once again, very precisely everything needs to be counted" — Zavalnyi whose words are cited by the press service of RGO has told. The head of the power State Duma Committee has emphasized that cross subsidizing in power industry is a price discrimination of consumers. Her essence consists in redistribution of loading on payment between groups of consumers at which one actually pay a part of cost of the electric power for others. Zavalnyi has added that the State Duma Energy Committee repeatedly considered a subject of social norm on electricity as one of instruments of decrease in level of cross subsidizing in power industry for a transition period. "We discussed experience of those several regions where the corresponding experiment was made. By recognition of representatives of the regional authorities, only in two areas – and Oryol, some positive effect from the point of view of decrease in volumes intersections was Rostov though. In all other regions the effect hasn't been gained, and here some social "deposit" from the imposed restrictions and the rangings apprehended as injustice remained with citizens", – he has told.
