PPC clients face ex­tra levy

Kathimerini English - - Focus - CHRYSSA LIAGGOU

Elec­tric­ity con­sumers are ex­pected to be asked to pay an ex­tra 600 mil­lion eu­ros. This is the amount Pub­lic Power Cor­po­ra­tion in­tends to claim through bills to cover the cost of pub­lic ser­vices such as the cost of sup­ply­ing re­mote is­lands with power and spe­cial dis­counts for poor house­holds.

PPC cus­tomers used to cover the cost in an ex­tra charge, but that stopped in 2013. Now the com­pany is cash-strapped, it in­tends to re­vive the po­lit­i­cally sen­si­tive charge, which the min­istry has avoided ad­dress­ing. PPC cal­cu­la­tions take the sum for 2012 to 2015 to 600 mil­lion.
