Provision Conditions

The Social Residential Tariff is applied to the total 4-month period consumption, if:

 

1.     The consumption refers to the coverage of needs for the permanent residence of the beneficiary.

2.     The power supply is under the name of the beneficiary or under the name of the husband/wife.

3.     The consumption is over or equal to  200 kWh per 4-month period

4.     The total consumption for the 4-month period does not exceed the consumption limits defined for each beneficiary category. The night tariff consumption is not taken into consideration for the consumption limits.

 

If the consumption exceeds these 4-month consumption limits then the Social Residential Tariff will not be applied for the specific 4-month period, provided that the mean 4-month consumption on annual rolling basis exceeds the consumption limits defined for each beneficiary category based on the actual readings.

If the mean 4-month consumption on annual rolling basis does not exceed the consumption limits defined for each beneficiary category in terms of actual readings, then the exceeding  4-month consumption period will be charged with the prices of the currently applied Power Supplier residential tariff that correspond to the total consumption.

 

Specifically, for the beneficiaries who belong to the category “People on life support”, if the the limit of 2,000 kWh is exceeded, the Social Residential Tariff is applied only to the 4-month consumption period up to 2,000 kWh while for the part of the 4-month consumption period above the 2,001 kWh will be charged with the prices of the currently applied Power Supplier residential tariff that correspond to the total consumption.
