The power State Duma Committee opposed payment of installation of "smart" counters of gas by citizens — Rambler News Service


Responsibility for installation of digital counters of gas has to lie on the supplier or the network company, but not on the consumer, the Chairman of the Committee on power of the State Duma, the head of the Russian Gas Society (RGS) Pavel Zavalnyi said. "Under the law responsibility for installation of smart meters as on the electric power, so, subsequently, and on gas, has to lie on the supplier or the network company, but not on the consumer. This responsibility has to be relieved from citizens" — the press service of RGO cites Zavalnyi's words. The head of the power State Duma Committee noted that Russia actually is on the threshold of revolution in accounting of consumption of energy resources which will have to not only increase efficiency of consumption, but also lower expenses including for consumers of resources and also to increase discipline of payments for them. According to him, the foundation for it will be laid by adoption of law "About introduction of amendments to separate acts of the Russian Federation in connection with development of systems of accounting of electric energy (power) in the Russian Federation" which prepares for the second reading today. The bill assumes that since July 1, 2020 responsibility for creation of intellectual systems of accounting of the electric power, including installation of counters, will be assigned to Rosseti for industrial and individual consumers or the guaranteeing electricity providers – for apartment houses. Financing of this work in a case with the guaranteeing suppliers will be carried out through tariff decisions, and in a case with Rosseti – due to that economy which start of this system will give (according to the experts – 20-30%) which will not be withdrawn from the company for a long time. That is from the consumer on whom this responsibility will be relieved. Earlier today the Kommersant newspaper reported that the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Kozak charged to the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Economic Development and the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of Russia to develop offers on obligatory introduction of digital counters of gas till March 1, 2019.
