The Sejm adopted an act limiting the amount of electricity prices. The act will introduce protection for public utility entities and micro, small and medium-sized enterprises against a drastic increase in electricity bills.

This will be achieved by the introduction of a maximum electricity price mechanism for settlements with customers authorized by energy sellers, not higher than:
- 693 PLN / MWh for households;
- 785 PLN / MWh for other eligible customers.
The maximum price will be used by sellers in settlements with:
- households – from the moment exceeding consumption limits until December 31, 2023;
- public utility entities and local governments – from February 24, 2022 to December 31, 2023;
- small and medium-sized entrepreneurs – from February 24, 2022 to December 31, 2023
