Gas and district heating customers will be waived on account payments in December

Households and smaller companies with an annual consumption of up to 1.5 million kilowatt hours receive the one-time relief payment. Certain facilities in the care and education sector and in medical care also receive emergency aid, even if their consumption is higher.

The law requires natural gas suppliers to credit consumers with a one-time relief amount. The amount is therefore to be offset against the first invoice from the natural gas supplier, the billing period of which covers the month of December 2022.

The amount of the relief is calculated on the basis of one twelfth of the annual consumption that the supplier had forecast for the so-called extraction point in September 2022 and the gas price in December. The prices, which in some cases increased significantly at the end of the year, are to be taken into account. In the case of district heating, the amount of the September bill and a "flat-rate adjustment factor" should be used, which takes into account the price increases up to December.

Tenants should receive the December relief with the next annual heating bill. Landlords have one year to prepare and submit the statement - but must provide information on the estimated credit as early as this December.

According to the government, the relief is in the "higher single-digit billion range". They are to be financed from the Economic Stabilization Fund.
