From now on you can see by the hour what your electricity costs from energy suppliers

Eneco customers will soon be able to enter into dynamic contracts. This will involve electricity tariffs changing by the hour and a different price for gas each day. Eneco is the first of the large energy companies to offer such a contract. Budget Energie is doing the same in the meantime.

At times when a lot of solar and wind energy is available, electricity prices are lower than at times when this is not the case. According to Eneco, the dynamic contract allows customers to adjust their power consumption accordingly.

They can track energy prices daily in their app and then use energy at times when prices are low. For example, turning on the washing machine or charging the electric car when electricity is cheap.

The dynamic contract is now offered alongside Eneco's existing variable and fixed contracts. As of October, households with solar panels can also use such a contract.

From today, energy supplier Budget Energie is also offering dynamic contracts in addition to variable and fixed contracts. Households with solar panels can already take out such a contract there now.
