Shield 1000 plus for heating, ie new electricity surcharges. What is known?

In houses that are heated with electricity or even a heat pump, there is no chance of keeping consumption below the 2000 KWh limit. That is why the cabinet is planning an energy supplement. This time for people who heat their homes with electricity.

Who is the 1000 plus electric heating blade for?

The electricity surcharge is intended for households where the main source of heat is an electrical appliance.

The additive should work in the same way as other additives: for coal, pellets, fuel oil, wood or LPG gas. Every household in which electricity is the heat source will therefore receive the subsidy. The condition is a declaration to the CEEB. The same principle for awarding benefits will also apply: one surcharge per one residential address.

How much is the electricity surcharge 1000 plus? Two thresholds of allowances?

There is no official information yet. The Infor website reports that the surcharge for people who heat with electricity 1000 PLN. Dziennik Gazeta Prawnan in turn informs it will be not less than PLN 1000 and it is possible that the surcharge will be higher.

“It is possible that instead of one fee for people who heat their apartment with electricity, there will be two. With several hundred zlotys higher. Calculations are made, if it may be more, and such a discussion takes place in the government, but there is no assurance that such a variant will be implemented” – DGP informed on September 21, 2022.

The government will provide details on the solution later this week.
