To anticipate the possible strategy of the Government was the Economy Minister: “He is a very complicated mechanism which could debut next spring”. So Giorgetti lifted the veil on the executive’s probable next moves – which, after receiving the go-ahead for the manoeuvre, is thinking of identifying a new calculation of bills which – at least in intentions – should move on a double track: on the one hand, protect the protected areas by encouraging, in parallel, the energy saving.
Bills, Government studies new calculation system
“The prerequisite for this reorganization of the price determination mechanism is to have a picture of the data that is as homogeneous and complete as possible”, explains Giorgetti who also underlines how the reduction in energy consumption “is in line with the regulation elaborated by Europe which includes a voluntary global reduction target of 10% of gross electricity consumption and a mandatory reduction of 5% of electricity consumption during peak hours”. he underlined during the interview at the party for the tenth anniversary of Fdi, which took place in the middle of the month.
How would it work
In practice, according to the very first indications that came from the interview that the owner of Via XX Settembre gave at the party for the tenth anniversary of Fdi, which took place in the middle of the month, the intention is to “give a protected consumption range of 70- 80%” comparing it with consumption “of previous years protected at the same price, then if someone consumes more, they pay a higher price” for that part of the 20-30 percent subjected to the market.
At present, it is a ambitious plan but only sketchy which should take shape in the coming months. As Giorgetti himself anticipates, in fact, the information must be made available to the government, to the competent ministry, Mite, and to that of the Economy: “If I make a policy to sterilize the impacts on families and businesses, I must have all the information on how the price is formed and how it evolves day by day”.
Light, expected drop
Meanwhile, according to data released a few days ago by ARERAthe electricity bill for users on the protected market will suffer a decrease by -19.5%. A “positive but still insufficient signal” for consumer associations
“The electricity bill for users on the protected market will suffer a decrease of -19.5%. This means that, for electricity, the expenditure for the typical family in the rolling year (between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023), will be approximately 1374 euros, +67% compared to the equivalent 12 months of the previous year. An expenditure which, although decreasing compared to the previous quarter, will in any case be unsustainable for many families, who are already facing past increases and which in 2023, excluding the expenditure for electricity and gas, will already have to face increases of +1503 for other expenses ,62 euros – he says Federconsumatori.
“Good, but that’s not enough”
The National Consumer Union is on the same line. “Good but not enoughto. The decline is certainly positive but insufficient to offset the record increases in previous quarters. The bills remain for hospitalization – he says Marco Vignola, manager of the energy sector of the National Consumer Union.
The reduction in electricity tariffs is good news, but the drop ordered by Arera is not sufficient to recover the effects of the increases recorded in the last year – also affirms the Codacons.
