Saxony: Kretschmer: protective shield for municipal utilities and energy suppliers

Dresden (dpa/sn) - Saxon Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (CDU) has demanded a protective shield for municipal utilities and regional energy suppliers in view of rising energy costs. Kretschmer said on Tuesday in Dresden that these companies are important for the welfare of the public and thus for social peace. Given the gas price trend, these utilities could start to "wobble," he said. "We're going to face very difficult times here." The federal government should not only support the large gas importers.

The federal government must clearly specify which gas customers are affected by restrictions in the event of an emergency. In addition, it is about an extension of the obligation to file for insolvency, guarantees, bridging aid in the event of liquidity bottlenecks and a fair system of cost distribution. It must be clarified quickly how this happens.
