"If the complex closes, we will leave electricity. If we happen to get it, it will be badly expensive. There is no alternative and no-one will offer us electricity at a lower price. one we produce, "said Podkrepa, president of CTK Dimitar Manolov, to Nova," Hello, Bulgaria ".
Miners and energetics protest in Sofia. The rally has been organized by the Podkrepa Trade Union. The Maritsa East Miners and TPP Maritsa East 2 came yesterday in Radnevo with insistence on how the energy complex will continue to work.
"Energy has formed on the subject a coalition from affected countries and we insist that Bulgaria is part of it. Among the countries concerned are Germany and Poland, "he added.
"Miners and energetics said clearly what they were fighting for. They want the future of Bulgaria's energy. Around 45% of electricity generated," said CITUB, president of Plamen Dimitrov, adding that there Meetings with Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and President Rumen Radev.
"The mantra is that the TPPs are dirty in a lie. We drink coal and timber in homes. The European Commission has a criminal procedure against Bulgaria because of its fine dust particles, which are higher than # 39; If there is a negative decision with coal power stations, this dump will become more. That is, the environmental argument does not work, "said Dimitrov.
It is of the opinion that if there is no sustainable solution to the coal power plants, Bulgaria will not suffer from any other electricity supply scenario. The president of the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions (CITUB) added that if there is no decision until February, the next protest will be in Brussels.
The mission will start at 13 now and will go through Sofia streets by giving the best ministry to the problem. On Friday, a meeting of representatives of KT Podkrepa and CITUB with the president and the prime minister are expected.
Almost 50% of Bulgaria's electricity is generated by coal power plants and is supported by the whole region by the sector. TPPs have to meet higher eco-requirements and have the risk of putting coal in history.
"It's incredible and unacceptable for the state to reveal its two largest energy companies, generating more than 45% of electricity in the country," CITUB said.
The statement sent to the responsible institutions says that the state of our country's state-of-the-art power companies are getting worse, which are still worrying. "Recent attempts to save East Maritza from the deep financial deficit are not credible – on the one hand, solutions are offered that will only result in the transfer of the problem to fixed companies and on the other will be discussed actions that are also far in time, "said statement.
Trade unions demand briefly on an adequate situation from the state to ensure the development of the future complex to the lack of coal reserves. A new energy strategy with the horizon 2030-2050 is needed, as well as the state to make a continued commitment to establish a mechanism to compensate for Maritsa East 2 TPP carbon emissions.
It also became clear that TPP East Maritsa had 2 BGN liabilities 1.199 billion.
