Joint-Stock Company Azersu positively assessed changing the tariffs for water, Trend reports with reference to the JSC.
We do not expect that the increase of the prices for water and sewerage services will cause the dissatisfaction of the consumers because there are no big differences between old and new tariffs, the same source said.
Last week, the Tariff Council of Azerbaijan made a decision of applying new tariffs for the communal services.
According to the decision of the Tariff Council, the cost of 1 cu.m of water is AZN 0.18 for population of Baku, Sumgait, Ganja, Khirdalan, Mingachevir, Ali Bayramli and Apsheron Peninsula, and AZN 0.70 for remaining consumers. In other regions of Azerbaijan, the residential consumer will pay AZN 0.14 and other consumers AZN 0.70. However, if the water is used as a raw material, the water will be AZN 12 per cu.m.
The increase also dealt with the sewerage services for the population of Baku, Sumgait, Ganja, Khirdalan, Mingachevir, Ali Bayramli and Apsheron peninsula. The population will pay AZN 0.04 for the 1 cu.m of the waste water and other users AZN 0.20. In other regions, population will pay AZN 0.03 and other users AZN 0.20.
