Ljubljana – Petrol, Slovenia’s largest energy company, will significantly increase the prices of electricity and natural gas on 1 December. The price of electricity is expected to rise by around 30% and of natural gas by 12%, with Petrol citing higher energy prices on international markets as the reason.
"Bulgargaz" asked the Energy and Water Regulatory Commission to increase the price of gas for October by a shocking 36.2% compared to the previous month. This is extremely surprising, because the previous request was for a jump of "barely" 16%. The nominal expression of the requested increase means that a megawatt-hour will cost a little over BGN 94.
