Our formula remains the same, whatever the product!
What is best? Fixed or variable wholesale rates? Which duration?
Are you a FREE, SAFE or ZEN-type?
Fixed or variable?
With a fixed rate, the price of you electricity remains the same, for the whole duration of the contract. That way, you avoid price fluctuations.
With a variable rate, your electricity is charged at a price that follows the movements on the Belpex market (Belgian power exchange). A variable rate does not include a risk premium and is thus on average less expensive, but it can evolve with time (rise or fall).
The formula is blocked for the entire duration of the contract. The longer the contract, the longer the price of energy is blocked!
If you prefer to buy your energy at a price that is close to the market, in order to save more, it’s best to choose a variable contract for a short period.
