Bulgaria's energy watchdog DKEVR approved the new, higher prices of electricity, effective as of October 1.

The rise is within the forecast – an average of 9.79%, reports the BTA wire service.

The clients of CEZ Bulgaria in the western parts of the country would see the highest hike – by 9.9%. Clients of EVN in southern and south eastern Bulgaria would see their bills increase by 9.5%.

Meanwhile, earlier this week the EDCs said they have started extraordinary meter readings and the electricity bills will include the energy consumption with both prices.
