Ministry of Energy to compensate energy consumption for the cold season 2021-2022
The Government approved an emergency ordinance on regulating fiscal-budgetary measures and establishing the compensation scheme for electricity and natural gas consumption for the cold season 2021-2022.
About 13 million citizens will benefit from the compensation of electricity bills, so that they do not feel the increase in prices.
Household customers, individuals whose total electricity consumption is between 150 kwh and 1,000 kwh, benefit from a fixed amount compensation of 0.21 lei / kwh related to this electricity consumption. The reference price taken into account for active energy is 0.68 lei / kwh and includes regulated tariffs and VAT.
Similar solutions are for natural gas consumers. For gas, the compensation granted by the state will be 25% of the value of the consumption bill, if the total consumption related to it is between 80 and 960 cubic meters.
The measures will be applied between November 1, 2021 – March 31, 2022.
