The European Parliament has decided: this is how it would overwrite electricity contracts

By RockedBuzz 1 Min Read

According to the press release issued on the subject, at the plenary session in Strasbourg, the EP finalized its position on the electricity market reform by 366 votes to 186, with 18 abstentions, according to which part of the reform it should also include information on what options people sign up for, and a ban on suppliers unilaterally changing the terms of the contract.

Through the reform, all consumers, as well as small businesses, should benefit from long-term, affordable and stable prices and the mitigation of the impact of sudden price shocks, they stated.

The MEPs also want to achieve that the EU countries prohibit service providers from reducing the electricity supply of vulnerable consumers, as well as from disputes between service providers and consumers, and prevent service providers from forcing these consumers to use subscription systems.
