CEZ Bulgaria Offers Compensations amid Mass Protests
The mass protests against high electricity bills that swept Bulgaria's capital Sofia on Sunday has forced Czech power utility CEZ to offer compensations to its disgruntled clients.
"We fully understand the anger of the people. If needed, we will pay compensations to our clients," Petr Baran, Vice Chairman of the Management Board and Chief Operational Officer of CEZ Bulgaria, told Kanal 3 TV Channel.
"We serve more than 2 million clients. Mistakes happen. Each complaint will be carefully considered and checked. If there are mistakes, corrections will be made," he added.
CEZ supplies power to over 2 million households and companies in western Bulgaria, including the capital Sofia.
