Fixed or variable prices?
At om | nieuwe energie you have the option to choose between 4 different contracts: 1 year fixed, 2 years fixed, 3 years fixed and variable.
With a fixed contract the energy price per kWh stays the same for as long as the contract is running (with a maximum of 3 years). However, the price you pay depends on the month in which you apply for energy. Our fixed prices change every month. For example: If you apply in April for a 1 year fixed contract, you will get the prices of April for that whole period.
With a fixed contract you are unable to freely switch to another supplier as long as your contract is running. You are however able to switch by paying a fine.
Variable prices are set on the 1st of January and on the 1st of July and are adjusted to average energy prices of that moment. When you apply for a variable contract, the price automatically changes every half year. In contrast to a fixed contract you are not bound to a set period and you are free to change supplier or switch from variable to a fixed price whenever you want.
Pay attention! At the moment we only offer a Flex contract. With Flex the rates for electricity and gas are re-established each month on the basis of the current market situation. You can read more about this type of contract on this page.
Payments and meter readings
When you apply for energy we estimate what amount of energy you will use within the coming year. Each month you will pay 1/12 of the total amount of energy we expect you to use.
After twelve months of supply we look at your meter readings to determine how much energy you’ve actually consumed. If you used less than expexted, you will get a refund. If you used more than expected, you will have to pay a little extra.
