End of the protected electricity market, the deadline is the 1st April 2024
The electricity market is divided into two major parts: a protected market and a free market. In the protected market, the regulatory authority ARERA sets the supply conditions and prices. In the free market, on the other hand, customers choose their electricity supplier independently.
The Italian government initiated the abolition of the protected market. The protected market was subsequently abolished. For families, the final deadline is 01 April 2024. The original deadline of 10 January 2024 was extended by a further three months at the most recent meeting of the national authority. Those who do not switch to the free market by then will automatically be assigned to a national provider who has won the tender provided for this purpose.
