The Ministry of Energy has launched a public debate on the draft Emergency Ordinance on new consumer support measures, which provides, among other things, for a reduction in the capped price for both gas and electricity, and allows for higher consumption to receive compensation from the state budget.

The project provides, for domestic customers, the granting of a compensation amounting to a maximum of 0.291 lei/kWh, in the case of electricity, and amounting to a maximum of 40% of the value of the natural gas price component of the contract of supply of the beneficiary customer.

“In order to regularize the amounts related to the support scheme, the electricity/natural gas distribution operators have the obligation, in April-June 2022, in addition to the readings established according to the regulations in force, to read the meter index of household customers and to send to the electricity/ natural gas suppliers their measurement data, in order to apply the support scheme to all household customers that fall within the stipulated consumption limits,” it is mentioned in the project, according to Agerpres.

In the event that, during the period of application of the provisions of the support scheme, the change of supplier takes place, the electricity and natural gas distribution operators will exchange information between the new electricity/ natural gas supplier, the distribution operator and the current supplier.

The document also stipulates that during the application of the provisions of this emergency ordinance, the prices for electricity and natural gas are capped, for final customers, household consumers, as follows: the final billed price of electricity is capped at a maximum of 0.8 lei/kWh, while the final invoiced price of natural gas is capped at a maximum of 0.31 lei/kWh.
