The price of district heating is limited to 98.7 euros per megawatt hour



The Minister of Environment, Climate and Energy Bojan Kumer presented a regulation that limits the maximum price of district heating to 98.7 euros per megawatt hour. In some places in Slovenia, district heating prices have risen sharply.

Minister of Environment, Climate and Energy Bojan Kumer presented the regulations adopted at Tuesday’s correspondence session of the government at the press conference. The first regulation limits the maximum price of district heating to 98.7 euros per megawatt hour. The measure is valid from January 1 this year, since in accordance with the agreements with the directors of the relevant companies, the heating bills for January have not yet been issued. “The regulation limits the variable part of the heat price, but at the same time it prevents the transfer of costs to the fixed parts of other tariff items and other consumer groups.“The regulation is valid until 30 in April this year. Average prices of district heating in Slovenia you according to the minister, they range from 45 euros/MWh to 160 euros/MWh.

Kumer reminded that the government adopted a measure to cap natural gas prices in October, thinking that this would have a sufficient impact on the wholesale prices of heat from district heating systems. “A certain part of the burden we are wanted to distribute between the district heating systems themselves and the municipalities. We have largely succeeded, heat prices are competitive, limited and affordable.” In Maribor, Trbovlje, Nova Gorica, and Ravne in Carinthia, this measure was not sufficient, the minister explained. That is why the government prepared a regulation that should enable the inhabitants of the mentioned places to have affordable heating prices. Kumer also called on the management of companies such as Komunala Trbovlje and Energetika Maribor to also prepare programs for certain vulnerable groups of customers.

The government also issued a regulation on subsidies for the purchase of wood pellets. As Kumer explained, you will refund part of the cost to everyone who bought wood pellets between September 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022.In the regulation which we are accepted her we are specified in more detail the method of payment and the conditions regarding the supporting documents that the beneficiaries must present in their application.
