Electricity prices

Slovenské elektrárne is an electricity generating company. The price of electricity as a commodity is defined by the market without any form of regulation. The electricity price for end-consumers is comprised of several components. Some of them, such as the transmission, distribution, and system fees, are subject to regulation and are set by the decision of the Regulatory Office for Network Industries (RONI).

Composition of the average electricity price for households

The final consumer electricity price for households is influenced not only by the price of the commodity, which represents approximately a third of the final household price, but also and mainly by other fees related to the transmission, distribution, and system fees, which are regulated by RONI. The price of electricity for end-consumers includes the system fees necessary for covering of ancillary services, subventions for the use of renewable energy sources and production of electricity using domestic brown coal. Transmission and distribution fees cover the costs incurred by the grid operators. On top of these fees, the end-consumer – with the exception of households – pays excise taxes, and all end-consumers pay the VAT as defined by the relevant legislation.
