Prask plynrensk recently announced an increase in gas prices from the average price of about ten percent. How is the zoo operating in terms of energy efficiency? Do you know how much the costs will increase?
We have contracted electricity prices until the end of the year and gas until the end of March 2023. As for gas, we are at a five-fold increase compared to the 2020/2021 season, electricity will now be three-fold. And we will compare the new prices, we will see how much our investments will increase. They increased by 10 million last year, 20 of which was paid by the capital city of Prague, and we went to our reserves for 10 million. It is not possible to know exactly how much our costs will rise, we have the highest energy expenditure in December and spring, we will naturally heat much more compared to the summer. To illustrate, in the first half of this year we spent 15 million on electricity and 5 million on gas.
With the increase in energy prices, we applied to the city management for an extraordinary outdoor operating subsidy and they were granted.
