JSC Sadales tīkls tariff and MPC have been reduced

JSC Sadales tīkls tariff and MPC have been reduced

To mitigate the impact of electricity price hikes, the State has introduced two support mechanisms for all Latvian electricity users: a 50% reduction in the distribution system service charge and a 60% reduction in the mandatory purchase component (MPC).

What does an electricity user need to know?

1. Reduction of distribution system charges

For all electricity end-users, the State will reimburse 50% of the cost of the electricity distribution system service from 1 December 2021 to 30 April 2022. For the electricity user, this means a lower monthly electricity bill for a given period.

The electricity distribution system service charge is one of the components of the electricity bill, accounting for around 40% of the total bill. In Latvia, distribution system services are provided by JSC Sadales tīkls.

More information on the tariffs of JSC Sadales tīkls and their reduction is available on the website sadalestikls.lv/en/tarifi.

2. MPC reduction

As of 1 January 2022, the average MPC rate will be reduced by around 60%. MPC is also a component of the electricity bill, but it accounts for around 28% of the total bill. Just like a reduction in the electricity distribution charge, a reduction in the MPC means a lower monthly electricity bill for the consumer.

More information on the MPC capacity components and calculation procedures can be found at: www.eptirgotajs.lv.

Please note that the actual amount of the bill reduction will depend on the capacity and consumption at the specific connection point, i.e. your home or business.

Enefit's electricity bills for the relevant period will show the already reduced distribution system services tariff and MPC. No additional steps are required to receive the aid.
