Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) will now pay less for gas fuel on the Gas for Business tariff from the ORLEN Group’s PGNiG Obrót Detaliczny (PGNiG Retail Trade), the company announced.
Customers will see a reduction of 150 złotych (31.85 euros)/megawatt-hours (MWh), which is a discount of 19 per cent. The new price will be set by an automatic reduction mechanism and will be valid until 31 March 2023.
“PGNiG Obrót Detaliczny monitors the market situation and gas price fluctuations on European exchanges on an ongoing basis. The security of gas supplies for our customers is a priority,” said the President of PGNiG Obrót Detaliczny, Henryk Mucha. “However, the contracting of gas fuel takes place in the long term, hence a short-term drop in prices on the market exchange translates, in the short term and to the same extent, to price drops for business customers.”
As stated in a press release by PGNiG Obrót Detaliczny, the company decided to lower the Gas for Business tariffs “thanks to the security of supplies”. Maintaining the security of supply remains the company’s “fundamental task”. PGNiG Obrót Detaliczny serves over seven million customers across Poland, including several hundred thousand business customers.
The company has also prepared a new offer for heating plants, which was introduced earlier this month. This will guarantee heat producers gas rates at a maximum price of 400 złotych (85 euros)/MWh for the ordered volume, which will allow providers to reduce heating bills for end users.
