This is the Vrijopnaam rate for electricity. You pay VAT on the electricity rate. With Vrijopnaam Stroom Variabel you have a flexible contract that can be canceled monthly. We adjust the rates every quarter. With Vrijopnaam Stroom 1 year Fixed rate, you have a contract with a fixed rate that is agreed on the day of registration at Vrijopnaam. The contract starts on the first day that electricity is supplied.
With Vrijopnaam Gas Variabel you have opted for a variable m3 rate. With Vrijopnaam Gas 1 year Fixed rate, you have opted for a fixed m3 rate.
Single rate electricity
Single rate is the price for electricity from Vrijopnaam, regardless of the time at which your use takes place. Always the same economical price per kWh.
Normal and off-peak electricity rates
If you opt for day and night electricity (double tariff), you pay less for your electricity at night than during the day. The off-peak rate applies on working days from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., on weekends and national holidays. In regions where an evening rate applies, our off-peak rate starts from 9 pm (Noord-Brabant and Limburg).
Energy tax is a government levy on the consumption of electricity. You pay VAT on the energy tax.
Storage Sustainable Energy (ODE)
As of January 1, 2013, the government has introduced a new levy, the 'Sustainable Energy Storage' (ODE). This tax was created to stimulate investment in sustainable energy more. You pay VAT on the ODE.
Fixed delivery costs
The fixed delivery costs (previously standing charges) are the costs that Vrijopnaam charges for carrying out the business processes. Fixed delivery costs amount to 6,50 euros per month per product (electricity and gas). You could see this as a subscription fee.
Reduction in energy tax
A reduction in energy tax for electricity of € 558,56 incl. VAT per year (€ 1,5303 per day) applies to the energy tax for residential areas. We will deduct this reduction from the energy tax from your installment amount and will be settled on the annual invoice.
Electricity network operator costs
In addition to the delivery rate and energy tax, you also pay network costs for managing and maintaining the network and meter rental. For an average user the network costs are € 237,83 incl. VAT per year. This amount is based on Stedin's rates for 2021. The actual costs depend on the own network operator.
Network operator costs gas
For an average user, the gas network management costs are € 176,75 incl. VAT per year. This amount is based on Stedin's rates for 2021. The actual costs depend on the own network operator.
Generate power with Paneelopnaam
If you generate power yourself with one or more Panelenopnaam, you will receive the rate of Vrijopnaam including VAT. This rate has a maximum of € 0.0800 per kWh (incl. VAT).
Your Panel name generates at least 250 kWh per year. You no longer have to buy this energy and we do not charge it on your annual invoice. Unfortunately, the government does not allow us to eliminate the energy tax and legal surcharges. We do include these government levies on the annual invoice. The value of the electricity you generate therefore consists of the purchase price including our surcharges, GVO costs and the VAT on this.
Generate electricity with solar panels on your own roof
If you have generated more than used, you will receive a feed-in compensation per kWh. This feed-in tariff is equal to the average delivery rate of Vrijopnaam of that year, plus VAT.
Your monthly amount
This installment amount is calculated on the basis of the usage you have specified and the rates of Vrijopnaam at the moment. The annual amount is the costs for consumption including energy tax, network management costs, fixed delivery costs and VAT. The monthly amount is the expected annual amount divided by 12.
