Transition to long-term communal sector tariffs regulation took several years, noted the expert of the Analytical Center Dmitriy Homchenko while commenting raising of tariff rates on housing and communal services to the radiopresenter of Citi FM. "Eventually, a communal services calculation and establishment mechanism appears and it will let consumers understand change in payment during whole period of regulation", said Mr. Homchenko. Communal services producers will have an opportunity to plan revenues and accordingly make a long-term plan on manufacturing and investment activities.

Establishment of communal services tariffs is not a rule of thumb decision. It is the result of economic calculations, which are made by special regulatory agencies in accordance with statutory procedures and economic methods. These procedures and methods provide with a list of both manufactured and future communal enterprises' expenses which are reasonably required for consumers provision with adequate communal services. Consumers should understand that.
