RIGA - Elenger, a Latvian subsidiary of Estonian natural gas and power company Eesty Gas, will start selling natural gas to households when the Latvian gas market opens for free trade on May 1, LETA learned from the company.
Elenger head Davis Skulte said that the company has been operating in the corporate segment of the Latvian market for five years, so the next step – to offer natural gas to Latvian households as well – is logical, balanced and corresponds to the strategic goals of Elenger.
"We believe that the entry of a new market player will certainly benefit gas consumers in Latvia, providing them with the opportunity to choose the most suitable supplier for them,” Skulte said.
Elenger operates in Finland, the Baltic states and Poland. The group currently has a total of 50,000 customers.
Elenger was registered in 2017 and has a share capital of EUR 2,800, according to Firmas.lv.
