These figures indicate how much more a household on low incomes struggles to pay its power supply bill in comparison to high income households. Although the latter pay a higher bill, they can afford to do so. “Households on average incomes of over 50 thousand lek compared to those on average incomes less than 10 thousand lek, on average pay 1.6 times more in their power supply bill. However, if we see this as percentage on household incomes spent on power supply bills, higher income households seem to be in a better position”, experts say.
