A significant part of the population of Georgia – about one million people – will get an increased power energy tariff subsidized by the Government, – Irakli Garibashvili, Prime Minister of Georgia, said Monday.
He noted the initiative will apply to target groups: households with 150,000 and less social subsistence points, which is around 1 million people.
“The referred program has existed since the dawn of the pandemic and was valid for two years. This program of subsidy ended in January, 2022. But, we have decided to extend the program for those groups that are most vulnerable. These target groups will get the increased power energy tariff subsidized by the Government. This initiative will be enacted from January and remain valid for the entire year,” Garibashvili said.
