EU Commission closes case of high tarrif charges against Malta

The European Commission has closed an infringment against Malta concerning utility rates charged to EU citizens living in Malta.

This infringement proceeding was opened in September 2012, following a number of complaints received from European Union citizens residing in Malta, concerning water and energy tariffs.

The Commission had declared that EU citizens were being charged the ‘domestic tariff’, which was approximately 30% higher than the ‘residential tariff’.
