The government has decided on compensation for the increase in the natural gas price also for those households that receive heating services with the involvement of an intermediary, who is a legal or natural person, such as managers, project developers, owners. State aid is provided with the help of these intermediaries, if it has submitted an application to Latvijas Gāze. Thus, state aid can also be received by apartment buildings, the owner of a row house, manager, project developer, where natural gas is used by households within the framework of mutual contractual obligations.

Period and amount of the state aid

  • Compensations will be applied for the period from July 2022 to the end of April 2023.
  • It is possible to apply for the state aid during the entire application period, but not later than April 30, 2023.
  • The state compensates a reduction in the fee of natural gas in the amount of 0.03 euro per kWh (without VAT), if the average monthly consumption in a 12-month period is from 221 kWh (21 m3).

Conditions for receiving the state aid

  • The aid is applied only to household consumption!
  • Meter readings must be submitted every month. For the calculated consumption, the aid will not be applied until the actual consumption is corrected!
  • The contractor must submit a separate application for each object.
  • The application for the current month can be submitted from the 27th date of each month until the second working day of the following month at 12:00 p.m.
  • The application for the previous months can also be submitted outside the reporting period of meter readings. In this case, the fee reduction will be applied to the next invoice, making the necessary adjustments.

We ask customers to be responsible and provide accurate consumption data, as this will be compared with the information available from the distribution system operator Gaso. In the case of data mismatch or false information, the aid may be refused or cancelled!
