To conclude a contract with the gas TUR, the customer does not need to choose the access rate, he only needs to indicate to the marketer the areas of use of the gas. Depending on these uses, the distributor will set one or another rate. If a customer has consumed more than 5,000 kWh during a year and has signed a contract, TUR1the distributor will automatically switch to the tariff. TUR2 and it will be the marketer who applies the change in prices to the invoice.
The price of TUR1 rate for households with annual consumption up to 5,000 kWh/year is determined as 0.0636 euro/kWh for variable maturity and 5.03 euro/month for one period in October. fixed with variable term, both prices are pre-tax.
For customers consuming between 5,000 and 15,000 kWh/year, the TUR2 rate price was determined as 0.0607 euro/kWh for variable maturity and 9.52 euro/month for fixed maturity (excluding taxes) in October.
For customers with consumption up to 50,000 kWh/year, TUR3 has been determined as 0.0585 euro/kWh for variable maturity and 20.54 euro/month for fixed maturity, excluding taxes, in October.
