Government passes energy savings tariff

On Wednesday, the Czech government passed the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s proposal for the subsidies that households are set to receive to compensate their energy costs this year. The “savings tariff”, as the subsidy is commonly referred to in Czech media, will kick in in October and lie at an average of CZK 15,000 for the upcoming heating season, with households receiving roughly CZK 4,000 this year.

The government is currently in the process of preparing a “savings calculator” for the public, which should enable people to estimate how much financial support their household will be able to claim.
