Energy dispute

Our team has represented a client who had entered into a rental agreement with another party in an energy dispute in Vilnius District Court. After a period of time the client observed that he had been overpaying for his electricity because the property owner was applying a markup without any legal grounds.

The case went to court, where the attorneys of Motieka & Audzevičius proved that the lessor did not have the right (license) to act as an electrical energy supplier, meaning that he could not apply a markup for the transferring of energy to the tenant. This case has helped to develop the case law regarding the right of a subject to act as a supplier of electrical energy, as well as the case law regarding the interpretation of energy supply contracts.
