Capping bills will cost the state budget at least 4 bln. lei

7 December 2021

Romanian Government wants to allocate 4 billion lei next year to offset and cap energy bills for domestic and industrial consumers, and the amount will be provided in the draft budget, government sources said on Tuesday.

“The amount needed to offset the gas and electricity bills of Romanian consumers next year is 4 billion lei and it will be provided in the draft budget we are currently working on,” said sources quoted by Agerpres.

According to Law 259/2021 on capping and offsetting energy bills, the price of energy is capped at a maximum of one leu between November 1 and March 31, 2022, to which is added a compensation of 29 bani for those who consume up to 300 kWh, plus a 10% margin for household consumers.

For gas, the compensation will be of 33% of the price of gas-goods in the bill, and the price was capped at 0.25 lei per kWh.

Regarding non-household customers such as SMEs, micro-enterprises, PFA, individual offices, liberal professions, electricity, from the final price are deducted, between November 1 and March 31, the regulated tariffs for transport, system service, distribution , the value of green certificates and the cogeneration contribution. For gas, non-household customers do not pay the transport and distribution tariff and excise.

In the case of clients of public institutions, such as hospitals, schools, nurseries, NGOs, social service providers and churches, capped prices apply at the same level as for households, but no compensation is granted.

The reduction will be applied directly to the bill, and the energy suppliers will later recover their money from the state.
