The National Authority for Energy Regulation (ANRE) informs on Tuesday that the energy and gas prices for household consumers on the regulated market will not increase until 2022, following the enforcement of the provisions of GEO 114/2018 on fiscal measures.
The release informs that the periods will be for electricity March 1, 2019-July 28, 2022 and for natural gas January 1, 2019-February 28, 2022.
With regard to the household consumers of electricity and natural gas who have used the eligibility right, ANRE states that it has made available to them several facilities designed to protect them from possible incorrect commercial practices. Thus, the customers benefit from a standard pricing or bidding tool for all interested in choosing or changing their electricity and/or gas supplier on the competitive market, whose purpose is to allow for comparison the supply prices and conditions offered by suppliers before choosing a particular supplier or a specific offer. These customers also have the opportunity to return from the competitive market to the regulated market, if they find it more advantageous.
In the case of electricity, the household electricity customer wishing to return from the competitive market to the universal service will address the last-resort suppliers in its network area, having ensured the price announced by ANRE.
