The energy ministry also said the minority’s claims that the PURC was contemplating a major increase in electricity tariffs and the fact that the ministry was meddling in the affairs of the PURC were all false.

In a statement, the energy ministry said it submitted a proposal to the PURC in November 2017 for a reduction in electricity tariffs.

“The PURC has not communicated its intention to increase tariff. A major review of tariffs does not necessarily mean an increase as misunderstood by the minority,” the statement said.

The energy ministry also noted that it considers the charge of meddling in the affairs of PURC as shocking and urged the minority to be diligent in their search for information.
