The WACC is calculated by taking into consideration the weighted price of using the equity capital and the debt capital, without taking into account the effect of taxation (i.e. the WACC value is higher than that with the taxation effect taken into consideration and represents the pre-tax cost of the capital), by using the following formula:

To calculate the rate of return on investments, the data provided in Table 1 were used, which are applied in setting the ceilings of the natural gas prices to the natural gas and centralized supply of liquefied petroleum gas undertakings in 2024-2028.
