More than half of the inhabitants of Germany feared the unbearable gas and electricity bills
Bild am Sonntag: 59% of Germans fear they won’t be able to pay their gas and electricity bills
Bild am Sonntag, citing a study by the INSA institute, reports that more than half of Germans, 59 percent, fear electricity and gas bills. And if the money does not come from the citizens, the public service companies will face problems.
If German residents cannot pay their energy bills, then, in a negative development of events, the work of public transport and city budget institutions may change, the article says.
Lower Saxony Prime Minister Stefan Weil said public services were in dire straits. Now they will have to pay more for energy, but citizens will not be able to bear the burden of paying, they fear. The Prime Minister believes that business support measures created by the government should also apply to municipal public services.
Germany is on the brink of an energy crisis due to dwindling gas supplies. The country’s government has agreed on measures to save energy resources in winter, which will reduce gas consumption by two percent. Thus, the temperature in offices and public institutions should not exceed 19 degrees at night. Similarly, from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am, outdoor advertisements and lighting of buildings and monuments must be switched off.
There were earlier reports that the UK was facing difficulties buying Norwegian gas. A dry summer has reduced exports as Oslo keeps hydropower plants off the grid.
