From 2007 until today, all electricity consumers enjoy the right to freely choose the Electricity Supplier that they prefer but also to negotiate the prices and the Conditions of Supply of the energy they need. The liberalization of the Electricity Market has resulted, through competition, in benefits for the final consumer in terms of cost reduction combined with the provision of a high level of communication and service.
ELECTRICITY BILL CHARGES
The electricity bill for all Suppliers is divided into two main parts:
The Competitive strand refers to the Cost of Electricity Supply, specifically to the charges set by each Supplier for his Customer’s consumption.
The Non-competitive strand concerns charges that, although depending on the technical characteristics of the customer’s supply and consumption, are calculated on a fixed basis determined by the State. While the Supply Cost is negotiable between the Customer and his Supplier, the Non-Competitive Strand is an inelastic cost and is determined for each type of provision according to the same method of calculation by all Suppliers.

The electricity bill is issued either monthly or every two months, mainly depending on the dispatch of consumption data by the Network Operator (DEDDIE) to the Supplier.
The “Clearance” bills invoice the actual consumption of the main during the time period relating to the bill. Actual consumption is established by receiving data either through a visit of DEDDIE to your meter or through telemetry.
The “Estimated” bills are related to estimated consumption for a period when no actual data is received for any reason. This estimate is made by DEDDIE and arises approximately based on the historical usage of the meter or measurements of the corresponding period of the previous year to achieve the highest possible accuracy.
The issuance of each clearance bill includes any estimated bill that preceded and relates to its consumption period. The amount already paid for the estimated bill is deducted so that the result of this clearance is left as a debit or credit balance.
