Daugavpils heating bills going down as of July

Take note – story published 2 years ago

The thermal energy tariff in Daugavpils will be EUR 4.32 or 3.9% lower as of July 1 compared to the one currently applied, at EUR 90.64 per megawatt-hour (MWh), according to the Public Service Regulator Commission (SPRK) information on June 20.

The thermal energy tariff has decreased due to a reduction in the costs of purchased heat and fuel. Both natural gas and renewable resources – chips, granules, and wood – are used in the production of thermal energy, as well as some of the thermal energy is being purchased, said SPRK.

Meanwhile, in most other municipalities, the heating tariff is expected to rise substantially. For example, in Valmiera municipality a 45% increase is expected, 19% in Cēsis, 6.7% in Jelgava, whereas in Rīga the tariffs are expected to double.
