Explanation of the electricity supply
The electricity bill has three sections: electricity, network access, and excise duty and VAT.
The prices of electricity are determined by the electricity supplier. They are the total costs of every kilowatt-hour of use at the higher and lower tariffs, or the amount of costs per kilowatt-hours for single-tariff metering.
Electricity users pay for the transfer and distribution of electricity through the electricity grid to their transfer point. Network access payment covers the costs of services provided by the distribution system operator (SODO, d. o. o.), the system operator (ELES, d. o. o.), and the Energy Agency.
It consists of:
- The price of the calculated power in kilowatts, which depends on the power the of the installed fuses
- The price of network access, which is the total costs for every kilowatt-hour used at higher and lower tariffs, or the amount of costs per kilowatt-hours for single-tariff metering
- Contribution OVE + SPTE is a contribution set up by the Slovenian government. It is intended for the development of renewable energy and high-efficiency coproduction. It is charged on the basis of calculated power in kilowatts.
- Contribution for URE is a contribution set up by the Slovenian government. It is intended to increase energy efficiency and is charged per kilowatt-hour spent at higher, lower, or single tariff.
- Contribution for the power market operator is a contribution set up by the Slovenian government. It is intended to cover the costs of the market operator Borzen, d. o. o., except for the operations of its Support Centre.
Excise duty is charged for every kilowatt-hour spent at the higher and lower tariff, or per spent kilowatt-hour at the single tariff.
On top of the net sum of the listed amounts, VAT of 22% is charged.
