The action is carried out with the cooperation of the Ministries of Finance, Digital Governance and Environment and Energy.

The so-called Power Pass provides cash rebates ranging from 18 euros to 600 euros for bills issued between December 1, 2021 and 31 May, 2022 and covers 60% of the surplus charges on bills from sharply higher energy prices, minus the state subsidies and any discounts given by the providers.

In cases where there are two beneficiaries for the same home, the rebate is split between them.
