The Latvian State Radio and Television Centre ensures continuous operation of customer hardware located in its facilities, as well as uninterrupted power supply. Customers receive electricity as LVRTC sub-users.
LVRTC purchases electricity from various suppliers on the market. Thanks to stable power consumption at LVRTC facilities, its suppliers are able to offer LVRTC a lower tariff than to other customers. As we want our customers to be able benefit from the above prices, the LVRTC electricity tariff for customers does not include any surcharges: it is exactly the same as the tariff that the LVRTC pays to buy electricity in the market.
What is included in the cost of customer's electricity
LVRTC purchases electricity in the open market from various suppliers in accordance with the requirements of the Public Procurement Law. LVRTC's electricity tariff is without additional mark-up or exactly equal to the tariff at which LVRTC buys electricity on the free market.
Customers whose equipment is located in the LVRTC infrastructure are also provided with equipment cooling and maintenance of an appropriate microclimate, which, in turn, results in additional electricity consumption. This cost item is included in the electricity bill as a fixed PUE index. It is an indicator of the efficiency of energy use, which actually means how much electricity is used for cooling these devices, maintaining the microclimate necessary for optimal operation, as well as providing the service.
Electricity is supplied to the LVRTC facilities by the distribution system operator. For this system service, LVRTC pays the operator a certain fee, which is also included in LVRTC's electricity bill without additional markup.
From the connection point of the distribution system operator in the LVRTC facility to the sub-user, i.e. for the customer's equipment in the same facility, electricity comes through the electricity supply infrastructure maintained by LVRTC. LVRTC constantly invests in the maintenance, modernization and, where necessary, backup of its electricity supply infrastructure to ensure a stable and uninterrupted supply of electricity to the customer's equipment throughout the electricity supply chain, including the LVRTC facility itself. The fee for the maintenance of the LVRTC power grid is applied by the LVRTC in addition to the electricity purchase tariff. This charge is based on the customer's total monthly electricity consumption across all LVRTC facilities combined.
The LVRTC will calculate the following total power tariff for customers (sub-users) depending on the metered monthly power consumption of the customer at all LVRTC facilities (prices are shown without VAT):
