According to Energy Minister Kanat Bozumbayev, there are several mechanisms. It’s planned to release the energy transmission companies from the corporate income tax and property tax when making the balance of ownerless power grids. The ban on power transmission provided by the legislation in the sphere of natural monopolies will be withdrawn. The revision of limits of tariffs for electricity transfer is possible. Again constructed substations which are on balance of public industries and the power supply network can be transferred to fixed assets of the power transferring organizations.
It should be noted that the bill is designed to achieve the objectives outlined in the 51th step of the National Plan "100 concrete steps".
In addition, according to K. Bozumbayev, by 2020 the cost of electricity will decrease. The draft law "On amendments and additions to some legislative acts of Kazakhstan on the issues of electric power" provides the requirements for energy transmission organizations (ETO), with the phased introduction, with effect from 2018 until 2022.
According to the Ministry of Energy, in the end the number of ETOs in 2020 will amount to no more than 120-130, the reliability of power supply will increase, the consumer costs in terms of payment services for the transmission of electricity will reduce.
