According to the data provided by the newspaper, the “authority” procured in 2020 from the Republic of Cyprus 11,926 MWh, in 2021 33,233 MWh and in 2022 50,200
The production of electricity from the facilities of the “electricity authority” and the private company AKSA are not sufficient to cover the needs and therefore they procure electricity from the Republic of Cyprus which is increasing and this is causing financial damage to the “authority”, Halkin Sesi writes today headlines.
According to the GTP, the publication adds that for the period July-August 2022, when the fuel in the acquired properties had run out, the “authority” procured (from AKSA) 15,000 MWh and paid 7 million euros (€0.40 per kwh), while if they produced them with the same means it would cost 4 million. The difference of 3 million euros corresponds to approximately 60 million TL.
Also, according to the data, the supply of electricity from the Republic of Cyprus increases year by year, as the production capacity of the “authority” decreases and demand increases, while under the terms of the existing contract the energy produced by AKSA is not enough.
According to the data provided by the newspaper, the “authority” procured in 2020 from the Republic of Cyprus 11,926 MWh, in 2021 33,233 MWh and in 2022 50,200.
In meanwhile, today with its announcement the union of the employees of the “electricity authority” announced a warning strike tomorrow in all the occupied areas, protesting the attempted amendment of the “law on public tenders” which “will give new concessions to AKSA”, the private power producer station.
He also warns that if the necessary tender is not made for the new investments in the power plant of the “electricity authority”, they will proceed with legal action and an indefinite strike.
