From May 1, Pražská plynárenská will reduce the price of gas for both permanent tariffs and one-year fixations below the government’s ceiling of CZK 3 per kWh, including VAT. From the same date, the price for one-year obsessions with electricity will also drop.
The open-ended Standard product will offer gas at CZK 2.904 per kWh. For the fixed tariff, the price per kWh will be CZK 2.75 for gas and CZK 5.78 for electricity. However, the regulated part of the price and the regular monthly payment must be added.
“Compared to the price ceiling set by the government, an average household using natural gas in its apartment for cooking, water heating, and heating with an annual consumption of 11 MWh will save about CZK 3,000 a year,” Miroslav Vránek, the company’s spokesman, told Právo.
With the fixed price of electricity from May, compared to the ceiling of CZK 6 per kWh, including VAT, a household in an apartment with a distribution rate of D02 and an annual consumption of 2.8 MWh will save about CZK 760. The company will publish the new price lists on www.ppas.cz.
Others have already become cheaper
Most significant suppliers have recently announced that they will reduce their prices for higher consumption by thousands of crowns yearly. E.ON and Innogy are offering lower prices for both fixed and open-ended contracts. For E.ON, lower energy prices apply from February 15, while from March 1, prices will also fall for those with a one-year fixation. At the beginning of February, new gas prices apply.
CEZ has introduced fixed products for electricity and gas for two or three years, under which the price remains at the ceiling this year and decreases in subsequent years. According to the company, households that heat with gas will save 40 percent on the gas price in the third year of the fixation against the ceiling.
