Next Previous Uprising in the EAC against RAEK for photovoltaics HOME • INSIDER • CYPRUS • Uprising in the EAC against RAEK for photovoltaics
& nbsp & nbspChrysanthos Manolis & nbsp; & nbsp;
With their announcement yesterday, three of the four trade unions of workers in the EAC (SIDIKEK, SEPAIK, SYVAIK) are making for the first time since the establishment of CERA, in 2003, a fierce and frontal attack on the Energy Regulatory Authority, attributing to it expediencies against the EAC and in favor of private interests.
The reason for the strongly critical announcement is the two recent preliminary regulatory decisions of CERA (one of which provides for the non-granting of other licenses for the construction of photovoltaic parks to the EAC) and the letter of the Auditor General to CERA, published on Tuesday by “Phileleftros” , requesting explanations for the reluctance-refusal of the Regulatory Authority to allow the EAC to include cheap photovoltaics in its productive mixture, for the benefit of consumers.

“Electroshock” to CERA from a letter from the Auditor General & nbsp; RAEK strict decision on EAC photovoltaics
The fourth union in EAC, EPOPAI, we are informed that yesterday sent an equally critical letter to the president of RAEK (see column below), which characterizes the decision no other RES should be approved in the EAC “hostile, dangerous and destructive for the EAC”!
& nbsp; – CERA did not take a public position on what is being criticized, but we are informed that it attributes its controversial preliminary decision (which has already been put to public consultation) to the need to ensure the operation of private, competing RES power plants, in the context of competitive operation. electricity market in the last quarter of 2022. CERA generally argues that the EAC has a dominant position in electricity generation and would undermine competition if its dominant position were extended to renewable energy sources.
< b> “The goal is the collapse of the EAC”!
Indicative of the harsh language used by the three unions in their announcement is their report that the two draft decisions put in consultation by CERA “clearly demonstrate the strategy of CERA not to allow the EAC to compete on equal terms but to load it with unstoppable weights, with the ultimate goal of its collapse “. They add: “In this mess they have created with wrong decisions, without taking into account the specifics of our small and electrically isolated country, they lead to damage to all consumers, on the altar of creating an Electricity Market that, instead of reducing, will increase the cost of electricity, further burdening the Cypriot consumer. “
According to the three unions, “it is now clear that the goal of CERA is to create a” competitive “Electricity Market for the benefit of some, to the detriment of the EAC and consequently the Cypriot consumer. (…) CERA excludes the EAC from any attempt to adapt to the market in order to reduce its costs, either by developing its own RES, or by purchasing cheap energy from third party RES Producers. In other words, a situation is created where some suppliers will be able to buy cheap energy, while this possibility is excluded for the EAC, since it deprives the independent producers of the right to contract with the EAC. Is this the competition cited by CERA? That is, the benefit of cheaper production does not end up in the consumer but in the pockets of specific market participants? ».
Elsewhere, the three unions stress that “any intervention in the EAC Strategic Planning to achieve its objectives and mission is not acceptable” and that “any intervention in the EAC and its efforts to create a production mix is not acceptable. for the benefit of the consumer “. And they warn: “Taking seriously the above, which create risks for the viability of the EAC and consequently for the interests of consumers and society at large, we are ready to defend the role of the EAC and to stand firm in these plans.” .
Of particular interest are the appeals of the unions to the board of directors and the management for taking action to defend the public organization: role of the EAC and the interest of consumers, implementing the necessary strategic decisions for the proper and healthy development of the EAC, the implementation of RES projects and the necessary staffing of the Organization, thus dealing with the hostile environment created by third parties, who bear full responsibility. In their effort, they will have our supporters and companions “.
The employees finally call on “the & nbsp; State and the competent ministries to immediately remove any obstacles and obstacles presented in the organization's effort for proper staffing, development and competitiveness”.
The EPOAI letter ( SEC) to the president of CERA
As mentioned above, EPOPAI, which did not co-sign the announcement of the other three unions, yesterday sent a letter to the president of CERA, which is signed by its president, Kyriakos Tafounas . Addressing the president of CERA, Mr. Tafounas states that “we do not find any logical explanation for your decision without a valid reason and serious cause, which traps the EAC in production with only expensive and polluting conventional fuels and does not contribute to its goal. price of electricity “. Immediately afterwards, he states that “our organization considers your specific decision hostile, dangerous and destructive for the EAC and we call on you, based on the well-understood interest of consumers, to correct your mistake by withdrawing it immediately.”
