Minister indicates exports ban possible way to curb power prices

By: J.S., STA

Economy Minister Zdravko Počivalšek said the government could intervene in the electricity market by banning exports and administering prices as a way to tackle the high price of energy.

“Slovenia produces 85% of the electricity it needs. But the fact is that we export half of what we produce. The state can intervene here – ban the export of our electricity and set the price. We will do that if needed,” he told the OZS chamber of small business.
