Subsidy of eleven cents per kilowatt hour

Eleven cents per kilowatt hour of electricity are subsidized for 80 percent of the average consumption of a household. This average was calculated by E-Control. The decisive factor is the number of people registered at the place of residence. A one-person household receives EUR 169.58 per year, and EUR 272.36 for two people. The subsidy will be credited to the electricity bill in monthly installments from October 2022. The blue and yellow electricity price discount is limited to September 30, 2023.
