The state aid will be available to all consumers, including those buying electricity from public and independent suppliers and also those who have guaranteed supply ensured.

Deputy Energy Minister Inga Ziliene says that "very preliminary calculations" show the electricity tariff is to be subsidized from July to make sure it does not exceed 23 cents per kilowatt-hour: "In this case, the tariff would increase by about 40 percent, compared to the public price today".

Gas tariffs for households should also increase by no more than 40-50 percent.
