BERLIN (Reuters) - Uniper will be allowed to pass on some energy costs to customers as part of a rescue package being discussed with the German government, two people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.

Sources told Reuters on Tuesday that Berlin was leaning towards taking an equity stake of 15%-30% as part of a bail-out of the stricken utility, which is bleeding cash in the wake of reduced gas deliveries from Russia.
