The intervention of the Draghi government will not be enough to avoid the rise in bills. This is said by the National Consumers Union according to which the elimination of system charges, announced by Prime Minister Mario Draghi, will have a limited impact on the increases in electricity and gas which will amount, on an annual basis, to over 100 euros for electricity. and 260 for gas. For this reason, the National Consumers Union is also asking to intervene on excise duties, regional surcharges for gas and VAT. “For a typical family, considering the data for the second quarter of 2021, ie before the 1.2 billion cut in June, the total cancellation of the charges would imply, on an average electricity bill of 562 euros, a reduction equal to to 113 euros, compared, however, to a theoretical increase (the one proposed by Draghi of 40 per cent on the total price of light) of 225 euros. In short, the bill would rise, on an annual basis, by 112 euros ”, they explain. The same goes for gas: on a bill for the typical family of 1,028 euros “the zeroing of charges would lower it by just 45 euros, compared to the increase proposed by Draghi of 30 percent, equal to 308 euros, with a final increase equal to 263 euros in twelve months “.
Bills, the government intervention does not reset the price increases: “Light will increase by 112 euros, gas by 263”
