No major tariff changes seen for May, support maintained

Next month’s retail electricity tariffs, due to be announced tomorrow by the country’s suppliers, are expected to remain largely unchanged compared to the previous month as a result of low prices at the TTF index and relative stability at the energy exchange.

By law, introduced last summer, all suppliers are required to announce their nominal tariffs for each forthcoming month by the 20th of each preceding month.

If the forecasts for May price levels are confirmed, nominal tariffs – not including subsidies – offered by suppliers will range between 0.105 and 0.1995 euros per KWh.

If the energy ministry decides to subsidize electricity bills for yet another month, as it has done throughout the energy crisis, then households can expect finalized retail prices to range between 0.09 and 0.1845 euros per KWh.

Though energy prices have deescalated considerably since the start of the energy crisis, authorities are expected to keep offering support to consumers until the end of the year.

The energy ministry has just launched an online platform, e-katanalotis, on which electricity users may check tariffs offered by suppliers.
