Slovenians who suffered in the floods will still have lower electricity bills
After N1 Slovenia announced that flooded households had to pay the full price of electricity for August despite various promises from the Ministry of Environment, Climate and Energy and traders, the System Operator of the Distribution Network now announces that the discount on bills will still be valid until October .
Merchants will also charge users the amount for August. After the floods, the Minister of Environment, Climate and Energy, Bojan Kumer, and electricity traders promised that the most affected will pay a minimum price for electricity from August to December. But the customer lists weren't ready at the beginning of the month, so merchants sent out regular price lists this month. This caused a backlash, as customers expected a discount based on political promises, and merchants did not write on the invoices why the prices were not reduced, nor that a settlement would follow.
The intervention law stated that buildings that are completely destroyed and where it is not possible to get electricity due to damage to electrical installations are exempt from paying electricity bills in full (both energy consumed and network charges and contributions).
