The first thing to say is that it is not about capping the price of energy (for example by setting a "fair profit" for energy companies, as presented by the government) - but it is purely about COMPENSATION for these companies, which all of us, including our children, will later pay from taxes. Simply the government therefore amount Will pay extra from our money to the market price, which may easily be many times that in the future.
And that this enormous hefty "axe" will be paid for with CEZ's dividends? – sure, a small part yes, but the money will of course be missing elsewhere, because the state budget has been subsidized by CEZ money for a long time...
And the "ceiling" itself?
The ceiling of electricity at CZK 6 in reality means for consumers CZK 9-11 per kWh, and gas at CZK 3 per kWh is an even bigger marketing fraud.
People are used to calculating gas not in kWh but in m3, which are on the gas meter. And here, after the "ceiling", we reach at least CZK 32 per m3 (while a year ago the price was CZK 11 per m3).
So both are roughly 3 times more expensive than they were in 2021, even after the "ceiling".
It is probably best to hear everything directly from an expert on energy - Mr. Ivan Noveský, who, like other experts who really understand it, is again not listened to by the government.
When I posted all this on Facebook today, one of the reactions was: "Today, every smart person is an energy expert..."
I feel like I'm experiencing déjà vu and I've gone back exactly two years, when I first wrote in the fall of 2020 about the crazy corona measures and what hell lockdowns and other senseless measures will lead to and I was only ridiculed.
Today, of course, it turns out that everything we are in Hello forum they said, it was filled to the brim - and just as doctors and lawyers who told the truth about covid and vaccinations were then (and still are) ridiculed, it is today COMPLETELY the same with energy experts, or security advisers and diplomats who warn against what our government is doing in connection with energy and Ukraine.
Only they are no longer anti-vaxxers, but newly pro-Russian cockroaches.
Whoever after two years of lies from the media, previous and current governments still believes what is presented to them is truly lost and the rest of you please take your pick:
One possibility is incredible incompetence and corruption, not only in our country, but in the entire EU and other parts of the world, and the other is a real intention - a really targeted liquidation of families and companies and private property...
Don't let the power like it and stop being silent, but you people are the only ones in your hands - we can't do more.
