More increases in November
However, the increases will not end there. From November, customers must take into account the new price list, for which they will pay 1.70 PLN per kWh consumed and a trading fee of approximately PLN 35. This includes the fall hike and VAT, which will return after the end of the anti-inflationary shield.
Taking into account all components of the electricity bill issued to customers (including distribution charges, capacity charges, etc.), this fall may reach About 385 PLN total per month. At the beginning of 2021, the figure was 121 PLN.
Tens of thousands of consumers use the electricity provided by PGNiG. Similar increases apply to other companies of this type, because this is what the current market reality looks like Energy prices have reached record levels.
The situation is different for ex officio sellers (PGE, Tauron, Enea or Energa), since there are no commercial fees, and electricity prices today are PLN 0.42 / kWh total. However, as Wysokienapiecie.pl points out, in January 2023 at the latest, unless the government comes up with a “freeze” of prices again, these rates will also rise significantly.
