For the inconvenience caused by the exceptional wave of bad weather that struck the regions of Marche and Abruzzo during the month of January, in addition to the automatic compensation outlined by the Electrical Energy and Gas Authority (AEEGSI-resolution 646/15), further compensation measures have been outlined for the customers that experienced longer interruptions to the service and those that that suffered damage as a result of the interruptions.

Customers can benefit from:
