Electricity bill battle… “Moon government bomb” vs “Exchange rate and oil price fault”

Today (10th), at the National Assembly’s Industrial, Self-Government메이저사이트 Committee’s audit of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, a battle between the ruling and opposition parties took place over the cause of the electricity rate increase.

People Power Party lawmakers pointed out that the energy purchase price rose sharply due to the nuclear phase-out policy during the former Moon Jae-in administration, but the main cause of the recent electricity rate increase was not reflecting this in time and passing the bomb on to the next government.

On the other hand, Democratic Party of Korea lawmakers criticized that the government’s plan to normalize KEPCO was necessary, saying that the KEPCO deficit increased last year and in the first half of this year as the proportion of nuclear power generation increased, and that the exchange rate and oil prices, not nuclear power, were the key to KEPCO’s deficit.
