Electricity and water bills to be subsidized for socially vulnerable families - up to a million people will benefit from the package

Power and water bills will be subsidized for socially vulnerable families. Based on the Government’s decree, the state will subsidize power bills for socially vulnerable families with 70,000 rating points and below. The subsidized amount equals the end-consumer rate applicable on the relevant level in December of 2020 minus the consumer rate applicable in July of 2015, with the addition of 3.5 tetri kWh, the difference between the consumer rates applicable in January of 2022 and December of 2020.

Said assistance is enjoyed by Tbilisi-registered socially vulnerable families with 70,000 rating points.

The Government will subsidize the cost of no more than 200 kWh per month with 3.5 tetri kWh for socially vulnerable families registered between January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022 with rating points between 70,000 and 150,000, besides Tbilisi-registered socially vulnerable families.

In the same vein, subsidies will also be provided to socially vulnerable families registered in the unified database of socially vulnerable families between April 1, 2022 through October 31, 2022 with rating points between 70,000 and 150,000 and residing in Tbilisi according to the database.
