• Consistent customers will not pay the fixed charge: the double amount of the fixed charge is returned to them
• New Reduced Business MV and LV Tariffs
• New particularly competitive Tariff to Corporations and Groups of Companies with National Network
PPC announces today significant financial benefits to LV and MV consumers with the application of the new tariff policy but also with the reward programme for consistent residential consumers.
PCC’s new tariff policy follows the contemporary tendencies of the retail market and is designed with such way so as to respond to consumers’ needs through the new discount policy and the creation of new tariff products addressed to corporations and groups of companies. Also, it inaugurates the new reward programme applied to residential customers who are consistent in the payment of their bills.
PPC’s Chairman & CEO, Mr. Manolis Panagiotakis made the following statement regarding the new tariff policy:
“Today, the Public Power Corporation is making one more significant step towards the implementation of its commitment towards its customers referring to the reduction of the energy cost, as well as the support to our fellow citizens who suffer from the economic crisis. Within the framework of redefining the relations between PPC and consumers, the Corporation decided substantial reductions in its business tariffs in Low and Middle Voltage supporting the country’s productive fabric and economic development. So, following the favorable installment plan decided two months ago, we announce today new, contemporary, reduced commercial and corporate tariffs. Also, we feel the need to reward as far as possible those customers who, despite the difficult period, paid and continue to pay their bills consistently. When the majority of those customers pertain in the grassroots classes, then our responsibility and the sense of duty are even bigger.
I would like to point out that if people, who can pay and they do not, were consistent to their obligations then there would have been bigger possibility to provide even better tariffs and rewards. This effort will continue even more intensively and soon we will have positive results. With the electricity market to pass from the transitional period into the new era, PPC remains actually a factor that guarantees the country’s stability, development and social solidarity.”
