Italy's antitrust authority AGCM said Wednesday that it has fined Enel SpA, its subsidiary Servizio Elettrico Nazionale SpA, and Eni SpA a total of 12.5 million euros ($15.1 million) over customer billing issues.

AGCM said the findings of the investigation showed the energy companies had unjustifiably rejected some users' requests to not pay electricity and gas bills that were served late.

Enel said in a statement that it acted in compliance with the relevant legislation and reserves the right to take any action to protect itself.

Eni wasn't immediately available for comment.
