Energy companies are asking for tariff increases

According to Rzeczpospolita, the Energy Regulatory Office received applications for tariff changes for 2023 from several energy suppliers. Among them are Energa Obrót, Tauron Sprzedaż and PGE Obrót. Let us recall that the act limiting the amount of electricity prices guarantees that electricity rates will be frozen in 2023 at the level of 2022. However, it does not prevent energy companies from applying for a tariff increase. Electricity trading companies will be entitled to compensation for losses resulting from price freezing.
