The electricity tariff announced by the providers on December 20th will be effective from January 1st.
A large number of households will face surprises when they open their electricity bill because the final fee for the current month is lower. The subsidy announced by the Ministry of Environment doubles compared to December, which led to a decrease in the tariff that households will pay for January consumption by 7% to 64%.
The cheapest electricity rates are set by almost all private service providers, who are estimated to have about 1 million customers.
The Energy Minister, Kostas Skrykas, announced a subsidy for January electricity bills a few days ago, in the wake of tariff increases announced by service providers.
He stressed that the total support for households and companies amounts to 840 million euros, double what it was in December.
In particular, Mr Skrekas pointed out that for all primary and non-primary benefits regardless of service provider, tiered support is structured as follows:
Up to 500 kWh: 330 € per MWh
From 501 to 1000 kWh, 280 euros per megawatt hour, then the subsidy increases to 50 euros per megawatt hour
More than 1001 kilowatt-hours 190 euros per megawatt-hour
In households included in the Social Household Tariff (COT), we absorb almost 100% of the excess and the subsidy is 378 €/MWh.
DEPA Emporias, in collaboration with other service providers, will provide a horizontal subsidy of up to €20 per MWh.
Tariffs announced by service providers
The provider fee for the month of January is as follows:
PPC: 489 euros/MWh for the first 500 kWh of consumption (from 380 for December) and 501 above this limit (from 392 for the last month)
Protergia: 448 euros/MWh (from 368 in December)
HERON: 360 €/MWh with consistency discount – 450 €/MWh without consistency discount (from 304 and 380 €/MWh in December respectively)
Elpedison: €450/MWh (from €350 in December). The “Elpedison Consistency Day” program is also offered with a fixed price of €5 and a cost of €422/MWh with consistency discount (from €2 32/MWh for December)
NRG: €440/MWh for Prime (from €319/MWh in December). The company has an on-time nrg program with a fee of €409/MWh (with a 15% consistency discount)
Natural gas: €358/MWh with consistency discount (from €298/MWh in December) and €477/MWh without consistency discount (from €318/MWh in December)
ELIN: €375/MWh (from €285/MWh in December)
Zenith: 465 euros/MWh (from 329 in December).
Watts and volts: 459 euros / MWh (from 389 in December).
Volterra: 518 euros/MWh (from 398 in December).
After the official announcement of support, Dnews calculates how much consumers will have to pay out of their pockets depending on the provider they are dealing with.
In PPC specifically, the consumer will be required to pay after the subsidy 0.159 cents per kilowatt
In Elpedison it is 0.12 minutes per kilowatt
In Protergia it is 0.118 minutes per kilowatt
In Heron the consumer will be required to pay 0.03 cents per kilowatt
NRG will pay 0.11 cents per kilowatt-hour
For natural gas, you will pay 0.028 cents
And you pay Elin 0.045 cents
At Zenith the consumer will pay net with the subsidy 0.135 cents
Watts and volts 0.129 minutes
Finally in a Volterra 0.188
Bearing in mind the above, do you understand how the provider that has the cheapest electricity for the month is natural gas, consumers will be required to pay only 0.028 cents per kilowatt hour, while in second place it is with a small difference of Heron is 0.03 minutes per kilowatt hour.
Volterra seems to have the most expensive electricity for the month according to the data
The ministry issued examples of calculating the new electricity prices after the officially announced subsidy.
Thus, he says, a family with an average consumption of 400 kWh / month will pay the electricity bill without subsidies of 199 euros, an amount that is adjusted after the announcement to 67 euros, that is, you will earn a total of 132 euros.
In another example, a household with a monthly consumption of 1,200 kWh/month would pay without the subsidy the amount of 598€, which equals 255€ after the subsidy, while if it consumes less energy compared to the energy saving bonus of 15% activated, then it will decrease This amount is more and amounts to 220 euros.
