The conclusion of standard supply contracts for small business consumers, who until October 1 this year have not entered the liberalized electricity market, will enable them to be supplied by their current supplier for the period 01.10.2020 – 30.06.2021.
The Energy and Water Regulatory Commission held a meeting at which it approved the standard supply contract. In accordance with the amendments to the Energy Act of 26 June 2020, from 1 October 2020, all non-household consumers who are currently supplied with electricity from the regulated market must enter the liberalized market by choosing an electricity supplier. In case that by September 30 this year a non-residential customer has not concluded a contract with an electricity trader, after this date he will be supplied by the current supplier, at freely negotiated prices, and for this purpose both parties must enter into a standard contract with a term of 01.10.2020. to 30.06.2021
The approved a standard contract regulates the rights and obligations of the parties, the conditions for supply of electricity and for termination of the contract. The approved model of a standard contract is systematized in ten sections, which contain: subject of the contract, term and conditions for entering into force, the rights and obligations of the parties, prices, invoicing and payments, the terms and conditions for suspension and resumption of electricity sales, the terms and conditions for amending and terminating the contract, responsibilities and sanctions, as well as dispute resolution and force majeure.
