How is the right to the Social Tariff attributed?

Final customers entitled to the social tariff will be sent a communication, informing that they have been granted the right to the social tariff. If the customer does not agree with this assignment, he can object within 30 days. If you say nothing, you are entitled to the social tariff.Alternatively, the beneficiary can also request from the competent social security institutions and the Tax and Customs Authority a proof of his status as a beneficiary and present it to the electricity supplier.

The Directorate-General for Energy and Geology is responsible for setting the number of end customers who benefit from the social tariff, under the terms of the protocol to be defined by the members of the Government responsible for the areas of finance, social security and energy.

For this purpose, the electricity traders forward to the Directorate-General for Energy and Geology the information necessary to identify the holders of electricity supply contracts.

What is the duration of the condition of beneficiary of the Social Tariff?

The maintenance of the social tariff depends on the confirmation, by the General Directorate of Energy and Geology, in September of each year, of the condition of economically vulnerable end customer.

The beneficiary who fails to meet the social tariff allocation requirements must communicate it to the competent social security institutions within 30 days.

Who applies the discount associated with the Social Tariff?

The application of the discount associated with the social tariff to economically vulnerable customers is the responsibility of the respective traders.
The discount, which is levied on the network access tariff, is calculated by ERSE, under the terms set out in the Tariff Regulation.
