Social Residential Tariff

Social Residential Tariff


The Social Residential Tariff (SRT) was introduced to protect vulnerable groups of consumers, and is available in accordance with the terms of Ministry of the Environment, Energy and Climate change Decision No. Δ5-ΗΛ/Β/Φ29/16027/6.8.10 (Government Gazette 1403/B/06.09.2010), as amended and is in force. 

A recent Ministerial Decision (Government Gazette 242/B/01.02.2018) amended the categories of beneficiaries entitled to this tariff, the membership criteria, and the discount offered to beneficiaries and repealed Price and Income Committee Decision No. 2153/3.4.1996 which introduced the special large family tariff. 

Anyone already obtaining the SRT will have to submit a new application via IDIKA, to check whether they meet the criteria and requirements for the new SRT. The beneficiaries of the special large family tariff have to follow the same procedure.  If no application is submitted, they will automatically be removed from the tariff on April  30th, 2018. 

Applications to join the new SRT must be submitted online via the special section of the IDIKA website (www.idika.gr) from February 15th 2018 onwards.

The beneficiaries entitled to the SRT will have to submit an application for the tariff every year. 

The information below provides a brief overview of key aspects of the Ministerial Decision and has been offered for the convenience of interested parties. Click here to view the Ministerial Decision

For each additional adult, the income thresholds are increased by € 4,500 and for each additional minor member by € 2,250, up to a total threshold of € 31,500, irrespective of how many people make up the household.  The specific max. threshold (€ 31,500) is increased by € 8,000 for a household which has one or more persons with 67% or more disability and by € 15,000 for households with one or more persons who require mechanical assistance from medical equipment, provided at home, which is vital to keep them alive.

iii. Members of the household are not covered by the provisions on luxury tax and do not declare living expenses for the crews of pleasure craft, private school tuition fees and household staff, chauffeurs, tutors and other staff. 


2) How and when to submit an application 

Applications to join the new SRT must be submitted online via the special section of the IDIKA website (www.idika.gr) from February 15th 2018 onwards.

The application must be submitted by the person responsible for submitting the household’s income tax return or his/her spouse, provided that the electricity supply is already in his/her name or that of his/her spouse. 

Households can only receive this tariff for electricity supply of their principal residence. 

Persons obtaining the SRT must resubmit an application for the tariff every year, within 1 month from the end of the deadline for individuals submitting income tax returns or any extension to it, so that their eligibility for the tariff can be re-examined. 

3) What consumption thresholds apply to the SRT?

The SRT applies to the total 4-month consumption, up to the consumption limits specified for each category of beneficiary:

120-Day/4-month consumption limits for SRT categories A and B:


Household line-up

4-month consumption limits

One person household

1.400 kWh

Household with two adults or a single parent family with one child

1.600 kWh

Household with three adults and one child or a single parent family with two children

1.700 kWh

Household with three adults or two adults and two children or a single parent family with three children

1.800 kWh

Household with three adults and one child or two adults and three children or a single parent family with four children

1.900 kWh

Household with four adults or two adults and four children or a single parent family with five children

2.000 kWh
































No SRT discount is applied to consumption levels below 200 kWh in any 4-month period.
 
If households include one or more individuals who are 67% or more disabled, the consumption limits above are increased by 300 kWh.

If households include one or more persons requiring mechanical support from medical devices provided at home, which are vital to keep them alive, the consumption limits above are increased by 600 kWh.

For each additional adult, the consumption levels are increased by 200 kWh and for each additional minor member by 100 kWh, up to a total threshold of 2,400 kWh, irrespective of how many people make up the household. The specific max. threshold (2,400 kWh) is increased by 300 kWh for a household which has one or more persons with 67% or more disability and by 600 kWh for households with one or more persons who require mechanical assistance from medical equipment, provided at home, which is vital to keep them alive.

4) What discount is available?

The supplier will apply the supply charges for the residential tariff chosen by each customer and then calculate the SRT discount on that.  

TABLE OF SOCIAL RESIDENTIAL TARIFF DISCOUNTS

Discount on electricity supply charges in €/kWh

SRT category Α

SRT category Β

0,075€/kWh 

0,045€/kWh 


That discount is calculated on the supply charges for day consumption.  If a customer has chosen the Residential Night Tariff, the discount applies to the supply charge of night consumption as well (reduced charge period) as specified in the Ministerial Decision.


5) How is billing done when you join or leave SRT Category A or SRT Category B?
 
When the first actual bill is issued after the customer joins the Social Residential Tariff, the new tariff is not applied to the entire amount of consumption shown in the specific bill but only the consumption period which corresponds to the time after joining the tariff. To calculate consumption under the SRT, the number of days in the scheme is multiplied by the average daily consumption in that bill (kWh/days actual bill relates to). 
                
For those customers who were entitled to older SRT categories (or the large families tariff) but who do not join one of the new SRT categories before 30.04.2018, the old SRT (or large families tariff) will be applied to the bill on a pro rata basis for consumption which corresponds to the consumption period up to 30.04.2018.
