Electricity rates to rise again in January

&#13

The Israel Public Utilities Authority (Electric power) announced previous evening that electric power charges in Israel will increase by 8.2% in January.

&#13

Energy costs are supposed to be revised each year but this calendar year the price have been amplified twice, by 5.7% in January and by 8.6% in August, simply because coal rates have doubled this calendar year on world marketplaces and the shekel has weakened. 25% of Israel’s electric power is developed from coal.

The price of electrical energy has a knock-on impact all over the economy. H2o premiums are owing to rise by 3.5% in January and as electric power is the largest expense in developing h2o, h2o prices can be expected to rise even extra sharply throughout 2023.

&#13

Primary Minister designate Benjamin Netanyahu promised throughout his election campaign to freeze the charges of electric power, h2o, gasoline and municipal taxes and subsidize them from Israel’s fiscal surplus. But he has very little home for maneuver other than to push on the numerous authorities to reasonable rises, as the past government did.
