KEK is ready to intervene on each case of network failures on Northern Part of Kosovo. The only concern that KEK has is the issue of the security to operate.
KEK also has prepared the Action Plan to legalize costumers of Northern Part of Kosovo and to treat them at the same way of other costumers around the country. The Plan will be implemented when the circumstances will allow doing so.
Pursuant to the legal and regulatory framework established in 2004, KEK is the sole licensed distribution system operator and public supplier for the whole territory of Kosovo. No other entity has been licensed to perform either of these activities. In acordance, KEK has taken legal actions against ‘Elektrokosmet’ and ‘Elektroprivreda Serbije (EPS) for illegal activities on Northern part of Kosovo. The complaint was submitted at the beginning of this year to Energy Committee Secretary against Republic of Serbia for breaching legal obligations in accordance with Energy Committee Treaty.
Accordingly, no payments should be made by electricity consumers in Kosovo, to Elektrokosmet or EPS, and consumers should disregard the bills they have received from these entities, and any future bills they receive from Elektrokosmet/EPS.
While everyone supports the necessity for customers to pay for electricity supplied, all of the electricity supplied to the north of Iber/Ibër River since last November is KEK’s energy. . Therefore, the only legal entity that customers should pay is KEK - or its authorized agent, once the customers are registered.
If any customer north of Iber/Ibër River has been disconnected by the abovementioned unlicensed operators for non-payment for electricity, they should immediately contact law enforcement authorities to report this illegal act and arrange for reconnection.
