According to the Energy Liberalisation/Electricity Act 2000, electricity suppliers in Austria are required to show the primary energy mix used to generate the electricity they supply on their customers electricity bills. Provincial governments are responsible for ensuring that this information is correct. In case of incorrect specifications, administrative fines are implemented; in case of repeated infractions the party will lose its right to supply. However, electricity suppliers have the option to show the average European energy mix used on the bills instead of the actual domestic energy mix.
