28.Oct 2021.

The Romanian Government adopted an emergency ordinance on regulating the budgetary measures and establishing the compensation scheme for electricity and natural gas consumption for the 2021-2022 winter season.

About 13 million Romanian citizens will benefit from the compensation of electricity bills, so that they do not feel the increase in prices. Residential customers whose total electricity consumption is between 150 kWh and 1,000 kWh will benefit from a fixed amount compensation of 0.042 euros/kWh related to this electricity consumption. The reference price taken into account for active energy is 0.14 euros/kWh and includes regulated tariffs and VAT.

Similar solutions are in place for natural gas consumers. The compensation granted by the state will be 25 % of the value of the gas consumption bill, if the total consumption related to it is between 80 and 960 cubic meters.

The measures will be applied between 1 November 2021 and 31 March 2022.
