GEN-I has cut the electricity prices paid by its household and small business customers by 15% for a period of three months. This further reduces electricity costs, which the Slovenian Government and Energy Agency have already cut through an intervention measure that waives the payment of the contribution to support the production of electricity from high-efficiency cogeneration and renewable energy sources (CHP and RES contribution) and tariff items for the capacity charge.
This means that items on future invoices will be charged as follows:
- Electricity according to actual use/the flat rate set out in the single-rate, peak-rate and off-peak-rate tariffs with a 15% discount
- Capacity charge: EUR 0.00
- CHP and RES contribution: EUR 0.00
The contributions for the functioning of the market operator and energy efficiency, and excise tax remain unchanged.
With these changes, the electricity bill for GEN-I’s average user will be close to 30% lower. Customers’ electricity bills for March will be lower, while the reduced prices will apply until the end of May.
As a reliable and trustworthy partner to its customers, GEN-I is aware of it own social responsibility and the responsibility of the commercial sector as a whole. “We are the first electricity supplier in Slovenia to cut prices during a time when numerous households and small business find themselves facing hardship. In such moments, it is our desire to contribute to the easing of that hardship. We hope that our example will be followed by other companies with the ability to help today, not just those from the energy sector. Now is not the time to generate profits and pursue our own interests; it is a time for solidary,” emphasized the President of GEN-I’s Management Board, Robert Golob, Ph.D., who sends his personal wish to all residents of Slovenia that they remain healthy in these extraordinary times.
