Subsidised Rate for self-employed people affected by COVID-19

Due to the state of alarm decreed as a result of COVID-19, extraordinary measures have been established that affect the Bono Social subsidised rate.

The general requirements for requesting the subsidised rate are maintained, but exceptionally, and while the state of alarm lasts, the possibility of applying for it is extended to:

  • Self-employed people who can demonstrate they are entitled to the benefit due to the complete cessation of their activity, or because they have seen their turnover reduced by at least 75% as a consequence of COVID-19.

What is the Social Rate?

The Social Rate offers a significant discount on your electricity bill. For those customers considered vulnerable, the amount of the discount will be 25%.

Who can benefit from the subsidised rate during the COVID-19 state of alarm?

In addition to the usual requirements for applying for the Social Rate (discounted rate), RDL 11/2020 of 31 March establishes that those who meet all the following conditions will be considered vulnerable consumers in their habitual residence:

  • The owner of the supply point (or any of the members of their family unit) are professionals who work for themselves or are self-employed.
  • They are entitled to the benefit due to the complete cessation of their professional activity, because their turnover has been reduced by at least 75%.
  • The reduction in billing is calculated by comparing the turnover for the month prior to the Social Rate application with the average turnover in the previous six-month period.
  • All this must be demonstrated for the period starting after 14 March 2020.

In order to receive the status of vulnerable consumer, it will be a necessary condition that the annual income of the supply point owner (or the joint annual income, if the owner is part of a family unit) is equal to or less than:

  • 2.5 times the IPREM (€18,798.90) if not part of a family unit.
  • 3 times the IPREM (€22,558.70) if there is a minor in the family unit.
  • 3.5 times the IPREM (€26,318.70) if there are two minors in the family unit.

How long will these measures last?

Those people who meet the requirements detailed above, and prove to be in a situation where their activity has ceased or their invoicing is reduced, will be considered vulnerable customers:

  • Until they resume their work activity.
  • For a maximum period of 6 months from 2 April 2020 (that is, until 2 October 2020).

Both before and after this deadline is met and regardless of these exceptional measures, all these people may request the subsidised rate under normal conditions if they meet the usual requirements.
