EPCG initiates the Campaign SHARE THE BURDEN 6, for households having debt based on consumed electricity, regardless of debt amount, as well as households whose agreements, signed two years ago in Share the Burden 4 campaign, expire.

The willing households may join the campaign during November. The last three bills settled is a precondition to be met when signing the Agreement on debt settlement. When signing the Agreement, no down payment is expected and the households may pay the existing debt in the following manner:    

•          Should the debt be less than €440, debt amount shall be divided by €20 thus defining the number of instalments.

•          Should the debt be more than €440, it shall be repaid in 22 monthly instalments amounting to €20.

From the moment of Agreement signing further calculation of default interest shall cease. In order to have the Agreement effective, a household needs to settle the current bill regularly, each month. Households disconnected from distribution grid as well as those willing to reprogram their signed protocols may join the campaign as well.

Please note that in addition to this Agreement the households shall be obliged to sign also the Contract on Supply of electricity, unless they have already done it. Moreover a separate procedures shall be applied to those customers who failed to register the meter to their own names, in terms of either possession of an authorization or undertaking to initiate the procedure to change the name of the customer in the future.
