No electricity price hike for Polish households by year's end

The head of the Energy Regulatory Office (URE) has refused to approve new electricity price tariffs and changes in the binding ones, to the end of the year. In its opinion, the current market situation does not justify any energy price rises.

According to the communique published by URE, the decision concerns four enterprises, namely, PGE Obrót, Tauron Sprzedaż, Enea and Energa.

The decision issued by URE means that the four companies selling electricity to households in Poland will have to keep their current prices to the end of the year.

In early 2020, energy recipients in Poland expected an increase in electricity prices later in the year. The hike was supposed to be triggered by the freezing of energy prices in 2019.
