The Supreme Administrative Prosecuting Magistracy has contested the decision of the Energy and Water Regulatory Commission (EWRC) to raise the price of water in Sofia by 18% from the beginning of April, arguing that it is not in conformity with the law and demanding its annulment.

According to the regulator, EWRC regulates the prices by means of a rate of return, determining a target rate of return taking into account the specific conditions in each water and sewerage utility, the social  affordability of the price of water-supply and sewerage services, the requirements in respect of future capital outlays and the indicators for financial stability.

Instead of determining a rate of return by itself, EWRC directly adopts the figure of a 17% of return of the own capital of Sofiyska Voda AD, indicated in the concession agreement for water-supply and sewerage services between the Sofia Municipality and the Sofiyska Voda utility.
