Parliament approves energy crisis relief package

By: P.T.,STA

The National Assembly overwhelmingly approved the government package to mitigate the impact of high energy prices, which stipulates that legal entities or individuals with a business registered in Slovenia by 1 December 2021 whose energy costs will increase by more than 40% in 2022 compared to 2021 will be eligible for government aid.

The primary focus is on aid for households and citizens – the package provides for a one-off payment for some 710,000 Slovenians, equalises the rights of all household consumers, and introduces a three-month exemption from payment of contributions and network charges.
