Our tariffs

Affordable heat

What do you pay for renewable heat, hot tap water and cooling at Eteck? And is it more expensive than natural gas? We are happy to explain all of this to you. So you know what to expect.

Is renewable heat more expensive?

We often get asked this question. If you include all costs, such as maintenance and replacement costs, renewable heat is not more expensive. Also, by law the costs cannot exceed those for natural gas. The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) sets tariffs for this every year on the basis of the Dutch Heat Act. This is based on the ‘No More Than Otherwise’ principle. According to this principle, the cost of our heat supply cannot exceed the cost for using natural gas as an energy source.

Comfortable heat

We supply sustainable heat. We charge you monthly for common standing charges and, if applicable, additonal costs based on your use.

Dutch Heat Act

Since 1 January 2014, the Dutch Heat Act applies to many of our projects. The Heat Act provides protection to everyone who receives heat from a communal heating network. Last year, the Heat Act underwent a number of changes. This resulted in the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) having to set the tariffs more specifically. In previous years there was a single tariff for heat connections. As of 2020, a distinction has been made between the three functions of heat connections:

1) space heat only

2) hot tap water only

3) a combination of space heating and hot tap water

In addition, the ACM has set tariffs for various heat interface units, where previously this was not regulated.
