Public sector firms offered 6% discount for bill prepayments

A multi-bill comprised of bailout prior actions, submitted to Greek Parliament yesterday for approval, includes an article offering public sector firms and agencies the ability to prepay electricity bills for a year’s worth of consumption in exchange for a 6 percent discount. The objective of this measure is to reduce state expenditure.

State-controlled PPC has already been given permission to offer 6 percent discounts for annual prepayments of electricity bills as an additional offer to a 15 percent discount offered to customers for punctual payments.
