Thanks to long-term contracts and purchases through auctions, school canteens and kindergartens and elementary schools in Prague 1 can relax. The town hall guarantees them favorable gas and electricity prices. In addition, they will receive an increased operating allowance from the budget.
As stated on website the first city district, school facilities will receive significantly higher operating allowances from the budget for the following year, which should help with the payment of electricity and gas. However, thanks to the auctions, the prices are advantageous for them in the long term.
“In the past few days, we have informed all the directors of our school canteens and kindergartens and elementary schools at a meeting, among other things, about the situation in the field of energy. In addition, a long-term external collaborator, who has long-term solved energy auctions for the city district and its contribution organizations, talks to them about the details. Thanks to this, we have favorable and long-term valid prices,” said the first deputy mayor of Prague 1, David Bodeček (Pirates).
Jednička manages a total of 5 elementary schools, 7 kindergartens and the same number of school canteens.
Prices are kept in check thanks to spot prices
Currently, Prague 1’s gas supplies are freshly sold out. Favorable so-called spot prices are provided to her and her contributory organizations by the company EON
The same supplier also supplies Jednička with electricity, thanks to a long-term contract at favorable prices until the end of next year.
Contributing organizations can still join
In the past, some contributory organizations concluded their own contracts for the supply of gas and electricity. At the meeting, they were available to study the current conditions offered by the city district. If interested, they will be able to join more favorable agreements.
Prague 5 also decided to support schools. It provided a budget of 4.3 million crowns for the purchase of energy until the end of its calendar year. In addition, the increase in energy prices will also be reflected in the draft budget for next year.
