Slovenian households were paying 0.17 euros per kWh of electricity and 0.06 euros per kWh of natural gas in the third quarter of the year, according to the data from the Statistical Office of Republic of Slovenia.

Compared to the second quarter of the year, electricity prices rose by 29 %, while gas prices dropped by 4 %. The average electricity price for industrial consumers in the third quarter of 2019 amounted to 0.09 euros/kWh without VAT, which is a 4 % increase compared to the previous quarter. Natural gas prices for industrial consumers in Slovenia decreased by 2 % compared to the second quarter of the year and amounted to 0.03 euros/kWh without VAT.

Higher electricity prices in the third quarter of 2020 (when compared to the second quarter of 2020) are mostly the consequence of the expiration of measures adopted by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia and the Energy Agency to mitigate the social and economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic from March to May 2020.
