LET’S STOP THE RISES OF LIGHT AND GAS!
The initiative against indiscriminate increases in electricity and gas bills is starting: you too can participate!
the Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks and Environments, has announced further increases in electricity and gas bills. In terms of final effects, for the electricity bill, the expenditure for the typical family in the rolling year (between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022) will be approximately 823 euros, with a change of +68% compared to the 12 equivalent months of the previous year (April 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021), corresponding to an increase of around 334 euros/year. In the same period, the expenditure of the typical household for the gas bill will be around 1560 euros, with a variation of +64% compared to the equivalent 12 months of the previous year, corresponding to an increase of around 610 euros/year.
It is also necessary to add the indirect effects of increases in electricity and gas bills, such as production activities, shops and businesses which will have to adjust their price lists to the public in order to support the higher energy costs charged to them and not go bankrupt, downloading the increases in electricity and gas prices and tariffs. A particularly dangerous situation because, faced with the wave of rising prices, households will react by reducing consumption, with immense damage to the national economy.
Confeuropa Consumers, to protect users, has decided to undertake a serious and strong initiative together with Codacons, designed to protect once and for all the interests and rights of users, who continue to suffer the indiscriminate increases of an essential service.
