It means that the overhead costs became stable when the government forced utility providers to keep their prices at the same level. Please let me know which words or phrases you don't know. If you say you don't understand the entire sentence it's difficult for us to explain it to you.

Thanks a lot, Dear Torsten. Now I got it.
In fact I am an accountant, but I still find some words or phrases seem like some argots and difficult for me to understand.
