Will Poles pay a lot for electricity? The government has an idea

Currently, the increase in electricity prices is frozen and many people may be afraid of increases that will affect everyone when this situation changes. The government has an idea on how to prevent a disaster.

Everything is getting more expensive, but electricity prices have remained unchanged for a long time. Still the previous government decided to freeze electricity prices, which was supposed to ensure that the increases would not hit Poles hard. The current government has extended this policy, but only until mid-year. In connection with after June 30, prices may increase dramatically. However, an idea emerged on how to do it in a way that would be as painless as possible for citizens’ wallets.

It was already cheap. Electricity prices could be catastrophic

According to the rp.pl website, if no changes are made, then current price PLN 412 per MWh will increase dramatically. According to calculations based on URE data, after June 30 citizens will pay approximately PLN 739 per MWh, which will translate into an average increase in monthly fees by PLN 327-490, depending on consumption. It is easy to guess that such a drastic increase would hit the pockets of citizens and entrepreneurs hard.

It is in the interest of the current government to prevent such a situation. Paulina Henning-Kloska, the current Minister of Climate, says that they are working on the appropriate ones blocking the increase in energy prices, in such a way that it does not exceed PLN 30 per month. This means that at the end of the year, Poles would pay on average PLN 180 more for electricity than now.

It was also announced that the ministry would present specific ones in the near future proposals to solve the problem of rising energy prices. According to unofficial information from Rzeczpospolita, a meeting of ministers with the President of the Energy Regulatory Office, Rafał Gawin, was to be held on February 29. He was to call on companies to appropriately adjust electricity tariffs so that the price per MWh would be PLN 500-600.
