She added that she wanted the bill to be submitted to the Sejm in April.

Paulina Hennig-Kloska recently announced that solutions regarding support for energy consumers after July 1 this year will be submitted to the Standing Committee of the Council of Ministers on Thursday. She said that one of the elements of support would be an energy voucher, which would cover at least 3.5 million households. Another element of the support system will be the legal basis for calculating new tariffs in mid-year. – New tariffs will be lower than the current ones. We are working on this with the Energy Regulatory Office (URE). Our task is to provide a legal basis so that such a tariff can be indicated in the middle of the year – said the minister then.

Currently, energy, gas and heat prices are frozen as part of the anti-inflation shields introduced by the previous government; the regulations expire mid-year.

At the end of 2023, an act was passed which maintains the current rules for protecting specific electricity, gas and heat consumers in the first half of 2024. The regulations provide for, among others: maximum electricity prices for households and small and medium-sized companies. The current maximum price of electricity was maintained at PLN 412 per MWh net up to a specified consumption limit.
