Default Service for Gas Distribution: service details

What it is

The "Default Distribution Service", similar to the supplier of last resort service, is activated by the authorised regional distributor in response to some particular situations, due to which a customer is left without a supplier, yet remains connected to the network and therefore able to continue consuming gas.
In such cases the supply of gas is assigned to a specific supplier selected by the Single Buyer by tender (as is the case with the default distribution supplier "FDD"), which operates in accordance with the provisions of the Authority for Electricity, Gas and Water System (hereinafter "AEEGSI"), also with regard to the economic conditions to be applied.
The default distribution service can be activated:

  • for arrears, with regard to domestic customers, apartment buildings with domestic use and annual consumption of less than 200,000 scm and customers with different uses and annual consumption of less than 50,000 scm;
  • for reasons other than arrears, with regard to apartment buildings with domestic use and annual consumption of more than 200,000 scm and customers with different uses and annual consumption of more than 50,000 scm;
  • in all cases where the requirements for activation of the "supplier of last resort service" are met but the service cannot be activated.
