The suggested changes will concern not only individual customers. Energy prices will not rise for local governments and businesses either. The Head of Government announced that the reduction of the burden on electricity will generate savings of PLN 4 billion for the consumers.

The main mechanism is the reduction of excise from the current PLN 20 to PLN 5, a reduction of about PLN 2 billion he calculated.

The second fundamental source is the transition fee reduced by 95% for all entities, resulting in savings of about PLN 1–1.5 billion.

Measures taken by energy companies to reduce their costs are to serve as additional mechanisms.

According to the Head of Government, electricity prices in Poland need to be at an adequate level. It will allow to shape the production costs of Polish businesses at a competitive level as compared to European or global companies.

The Head of Government informed that he had asked the Marshal of the Sejm to summon a meeting of the Sejm to adopt appropriate statutory regulations by the end of the year.
