Electricity subsidies for residential consumers in April are increased to 72 euros, covering monthly consumption up to 300 kWh, from 40 euros in March. Combined with a 30 % discount offered by electricity suppliers, this measure will reduce the price of electricity to 15 eurocents/kWh, compared to 39 eurocents in March.

Non-residential consumers will receive monthly subsidies of 130 euros/MWh, double the 65 euros/ MWh offered in March.

Small and medium-sized enterprises will also receive an additional 100 euros/MWh, which brings the total subsidy amount to 230 euros/MWh.
