In the face of recent legal successes of consumers on Lost/Illegal costs on Electricity Bills with Electricity Payment Notices,
the costs of the loss/leakage section of the electricity bills began to be seen. But that doesn't mean consumers don't pay a record/runaway price.
When you examine your electricity bills, you will see that there is no value in the lost/runaway section, as well as when you compare the energy unit price section at the top of your invoices with your invoice last month, you will see that the unit price is increased by as much as the energy price in the loss/leakage section of the electricity tariff published by EPDK, even though the price of electricity has not increased.
In short, the loss/leakage price we pay each month continues to be taken again by adding electricity to the unit price.
Article 22 of the Electricity Market Customer Regulation;
Electricity Payment Notifications
Information contained in payment notifications
ARTICLE 22 — (1) Payment notices to customers include the following information, minimum, according to the pricing method prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Electricity Market Tariffs Regulation;
a) Customer's first and last name or title, address, customer or subscriber number, subscriber group,
b) Brand, type and serial number of counters or counters, multiplier, current and/or voltage transformer ratios, if any,
c) Reading dates with the first and last indices based on consumption,
d) The amount of electrical energy consumed,
e) Energy and capacity information based on the pricing of consumption,
g) Taxes, legal deductions and liabilies,
h) Due date and payment centers,
i) Consumption values for the same period if there is a changed counter,
j) Telephone and fax numbers and internet address of the customer service center,
k) Daily energy consumption average,
l) The next reading period,
m) Debt for past periods, if any.
It is emphasized that "tax, legal deductions" should be seen in payment notices if we pay attention to the (g) section of the above article.
When you review your payment notice or electricity bill,
– Retail Service Charge,
– Transmission System Use Fee,
– Distribution Fee,
– Counter Reading Fee,
– Energy Fund,
– TRT share,
– Municipal Excise Duty,
Even though such funds and taxes continue to be received, "Lost Price" has been removed from the invoice detail and the price has been added to "Unit Price". So the lost price that continues to be taken is simply hidden.
Then it is time to interpret this hidden price according to paragraph (g) of the above regulation.
If the lost price received is legal, why does the invoice or payment notice not appear in the detail.?
If it is legal then why does not appear in the details of the invoice or payment notice in accordance with the relevant article of the regulation
If the loss fee is not legal, then why is the unit charged by adding it to the price.
This loss is presented to consumers and the public who are still paying the price.
