The Department of energy has developed a new formula to set tariffs for heat supply. According to her, now when pricing will take into account parameters such as type of fuel, number of floors in apartment buildings, as well as the temperature zone to which it or any other settlement. According to experts, such an approach may lead to a sharp increase in heat tariffs in some Russian regions.

The essence of the new formula of the Ministry of energy is to ensure that in a certain locality to calculate the construction costs of the boiler and to determine its break-even level of production. Then it is planned to offer CHP plants to sell heat energy at a price not exceeding the estimated rate of the boiler.
In this case the calculation will take into account such parameters as fuel type, average number of floors heated homes and apartment houses, the temperature in the region, as well as the distance that thermal energy is transferred.
So, for this purpose, as planned by the Ministry of energy, Russia will be divided into eight temperature zones. Belonging to a zone will affect the determination of the construction costs of boiler and heating systems. Cheap the most recognized construction in such regions as Dagestan, Chechnya and the Krasnodar territory (-4% on average). The most expensive cost of construction of boiler houses in Yakutia (+37%). Apparently in the Ministry are guided by the principle — the warmer, the less.
However, according to experts, in the office forgot to take into account this important point, as real disposable incomes. And as you know, the wallets of our compatriots “lose weight” every day. So, in January 2016 they fell by 6.3% in annual terms.
In addition, according to the ranking of the top 10 regions with the highest level of life, the same Krasnodar region is one of them. After the Sochi Olympic games there was a influx of investment in the infrastructure of the black sea coast of Krasnodar region. In the sectoral structure of regional GDP allocated to transport (16.2 per cent against 8.2 per cent for Russia as a whole) and agriculture (16,0% compared to 7.8%).
