The above discount applies in the supply charge for the daily consumption of the electricity provider.

For the rest, the charges of the supplier’s applicable residential tariff and the regulated charges imposed by the applicable law on the residential customers apply, with the reservation of the more specific provisions related to the exemption of the Social Residential Tariff from part or all of certain categories of regulated charges.
 
Especially the Category A Social Residential Tariff beneficiaries are also fully exempted from use-of-system and use-of-network charges for electricity consumption within their quarterly consumption thresholds.

The Social Residential Tariff is applied for the part of the quarterly consumption up to the consumption threshold, provided:

a. the electricity consumption covers the needs of the beneficiary’s principle residence;

b. the consumption is higher than or equal to 200kWh per four months;

c. the total quarterly consumption (120-day daily consumption) based on actual readings does not exceed the consumption thresholds, as set for each beneficiary. If these quarterly consumption thresholds are exceeded:

aa) for over 10% excess, and provided the average quarterly consumption on an annual rolling basis, based on actual readings, exceeds the consumption thresholds set for each beneficiary, the Social Residential Tariff does not apply for the specific quarterly period;

bb) for over 10% excess, provided the average quarterly consumption on an annual rolling basis does not exceed the consumption thresholds set for each beneficiary or for up to 10% excess, the Social Residential Tariff applies for the consumption within the set thresholds and the Supplier's applicable residential tariff applies for the excess consumption according to the scales of total consumption.

In order to calculate the excess of the consumption limits of each category of beneficiaries, the electricity consumption of night tariff is not taken into account.

In the case of a Social Residential Tariff beneficiary with a night electricity consumption meter:

aaa) If the sum of the day and night consumption lies within the daily consumption thresholds of the beneficiary, the Social Residential Tariff discount applies for the night consumption as well as the exemptions from the regulated charges of the Social Residential Tariff and the night tariff.

bbb) If the sum of the day and night consumption exceeds the daily consumption thresholds of article 2, the Social Responsibility Tariff discount and the exemptions from the regulated charges of the Social Residential Tariff and the night tariff apply for the night consumption within the above limits and the excess night consumption is charged with the Supplier’s applicable residential night tariff using the scales of total consumption.

To apply the Social Residential Tariff discount on the night consumption, according to the above, the supply charge for the day consumption of the Supplier is taken as electricity supply charge.
 
If the consumption is less than 200 kWh on a quarterly basis, the Social Residential Tariff does not apply for the specific period.

Especially for the beneficiaries that are in need of life support or have a member/members of their household in need of life support, the Social Residential Tariff is used up to the thresholds of the beneficiary’s quarterly consumption irrespective of the consumption excess.
