(ANSA) - VARESE, OCTOBER 05 - Energy costs from about 960 thousand euros in 2021 to almost 2.5 million euros in 2022. This is the prospectus presented yesterday to the Prefect of Varese SalvatorePasquariello, by an entrepreneur from the province of Varese, who is of iron casting for the electromechanical, automotive, mechanical and construction industries.

"At the request for payment in installments of the sum presented to the electricity supplier", Pasquariello said, the entrepreneur "was answered that he will have to pay the entire sum in 30 days, under penalty of suspension of the supply".
In the case of suspension of the supply, Pasquariello declared, for technical reasons "it would take at least ten days to make the plant safe, in order to avoid dangerous events such as explosions, explosions and fires, for which the entrepreneur would like to be relieved of all responsibility".
The "paradoxical" situation, continued the Prefect of Varese, "is that in the presence of a good level of orders and orders, there are considerable difficulties with both raw materials, due to increases in unsustainable costs for international transport, and with acquisition of energy sources ".
The entrepreneur, added the prefect, "on this front hopes that the Government will immediately take action to raise awareness of the suppliers, who are often large subjects, in some cases participated by the State".
Finally, he concluded, "suppliers may consider renegotiating payment terms, to allow companies to regain financial balance".
