Electricity costs & Additional electricity payment

Your electricity costs are covered by your standard rate and must be paid to your electricity company by yourself.

If you have an electricity back payment from your annual statement that you cannot pay from your own funds, you may be granted a loan.

An electricity back payment is always a good opportunity to check whether and where you can save on electricity costs. It is also worth comparing providers at any time. Caritas' free energy-saving service will be happy to help you.
