RESCHEDULED PAYMENT OF CENTRAL HEATING BILLS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR PROJECTED
The clients of Toplofikatsiya (Central Heating) Sofia EAD will soon be able to pay their bills of heating energy in equal installments throughout the year. In that way the monthly bills shall not be above BGN20-30, Emil Antonov, member of the central heating company's Management Board, explained. He added that 25% of Toplofikatisya Sofia's clients (about 80,000 people) will be using a special service, enabling them to pay only for the energy they need. The Ministry of Labour and Social Policies presently covers partly or entirely the bills of 13,620 citizens in Sofia. Central heating consumers will get three different bills for December 2001 due to the changes in heat power prices on three occasions that month as a result of the Supreme Administrative Court's ruling and the amendments to the Energy and Energy Efficiency Act.
