Subsidised Rate due to COVID-19

The economic situation caused by COVID-19 has led to the creation of a new category of vulnerable consumer with the right to receive the Subsidised Rate.

The Subsidised Rate is a significant discount on the electricity bill regulated by the Government. Through Royal Legislative Decree 30/2020, of 29 September , the Government has expanded the right to the Subsidised Rate, allowing it to be requested by groups especially affected by the economic situation generated as a result of COVID-19.

If you are granted the Subsidised Rate, as new vulnerable consumers, you will received a 25% discount on your bill (up to an established maximum consumption).

Who can request the new Subsidised Rate?

The holder of the supply point contract (or members of his/her family unit) must be in one of these three situations:

  • Unemployment.
  • Temporary Workforce Restructuring Plan (ERTE in its Spanish acronym).
  • If you are a business owner who has had their working day reduced due to care or other similar commitments that involve a substantial loss of income.

The holder of the supply point contract must be a natural person at their usual address and have contracted the PVPC rate (Voluntary Price for Small Consumers). In the event that it is necessary to make a change of holder or marketer, you can do so by sending us the following document to the email address bonosocial@energiaxxi.com.

What are the requirements for this new Subsidised Rate?

You have to meet some income requirements. In the month prior to submitting the application, the income of the household members must be within the following thresholds:

Since when have these measures been applied?

From September 30, 2020.

People who meet the requirements detailed above and request the Subsidised Rate will be considered vulnerable and will receive a 25% discount on their electricity bill.

Until when do these measures apply?

The Subsidised Rate discounts under these new cases generally end on 9 August 2021, in accordance with RDL 8/2021, which adopts urgent measures in the health, social and judicial realm, to be applied after the end of the validity of the State of Alarm declared by Royal Decree 926/2020 of 25 October.

Consumers who have been recognised as vulnerable consumers in accordance with RDL 30/2020 of 29 September and continue to meet the requirements laid down in 30 June 2021 shall continue to bear that condition without the need for re-accreditation unless the circumstances referred to thereto cease to exist after that date.

When a beneficiary ceases to meet the requirements, their right to benefit from the Social Rate will end and they must notify their marketer within a maximum period of 1 month to the following email: bonosocial@energiaxxi.com.

In any case, the status of vulnerable consumer and the right to receive the Social Bonus will be extinguished on 9 August 2021. From then on, all those affected may request the Subsidised Rate, but only according to the usual requirements.
