What is the G11 tariff?

The G11 tariff is primarily designed for individual consumers and households. It is referred to as a single-zone, universal or 24-hour tariff. Under the G11 tariff, the price for electricity is constant 24/7. This means that there is no difference in price per kWh, regardless of whether you consume electricity during peak hours (6am to 10pm) or off-peak hours (10pm to 6am).

The G11 tariff is mainly chosen by owners of flats and detached houses who use energy for household purposes. However, it can also be used by other entities. The only condition is the maximum power consumption in the tariff - it may not exceed 40 kW. The G11 tariff can be used by consumers who consume electricity for:

  • households,
  • household premises,
  • premises having the character of collective housing, such as dormitories, student residences, vicarages, penitentiary and military units, workers' hotels, welfare homes, children's homes, etc. (if no commercial activity is carried out therein) (if no economic activity is carried out in them),
  • holiday cottages, caravans, gazebos,
  • rotational housing and housing for employees of diplomatic missions,
  • lighting in residential buildings, power supply for lifts in residential buildings,
  • of the thermal junctions and hydropower plants that are within the scope of the administration of the residential houses,
  • garages of individual customers (if no commercial activity is carried out therein).
