Sverdlovsk region in debt to power company
In 2012, the Sverdlovsk towns owed a collective $3.9 million to SverdlovEnergoSbyt for their combined 2011 usage. Increased regional energy consumption, especially in the town of Ivdel, has led to the higher electric bill, Ural Business Consulting reports.
At the start of 2013, Ivdel's debt reached $548,000 in unpaid energy costs, 114 times greater than its debt at the beginning of 2012. Ivdel's local authorities constitute the vast majority of the towns debt, owing $542,000 for unpaid energy usage from its educational facilities.
The town of Talitsa accumulated an additional $45,000 in unpaid electric bills this year, with debts to SverdlovEnergoSbyt currently exceeding $269,000. Bogdanovitch holds almost $236,000 of debt, while Tugulym more than tripled its 2012 debt and owes nearly $240,000 to the energy company, according to Ural Business Consulting.
Kamensk-Uralsky, Krasnoturinsk and Beloyarsky carry debts of $183,000, $140,000 and $96,000, respectively. Beloyarsky owes the energy provider nine times as much money this year than in 2012.
