Are you looking for a new energy supplier? EasySwitch.nl is here to help you! We are one of the best energy comparison websites in the Netherlands. We help you compare all the energy providers on the market. Whether you’re completely new to the Dutch energy market or just looking to switch to a cheaper energy supplier, you’ll be done within 15 minutes!
Since 2004 the Dutch energy market has been completely liberalised. Currently over 25 energy suppliers are licensed to offer gas and electricity. As a consumer you are free to choose the supplier that best fits your needs. With so many options, finding the right energy provider can become quite a task. Therefore, the usage of a energy comparison website will save you a lots of time.
EasySwitch.nl is here to help you compare energy suppliers and make an informed decision. What matters to you most? Are you only interested in the lowest price? Or would you prefer an energy provider that mainly supplies green energy? Whatever your needs or wishes may be, EasySwitch.nl will enable you to make the right decision.
Currently our energy comparison tool is only available in Dutch. That shouldn’t stop you from using it though. Follow this simple guide and you’ll be able to compare suppliers and find the one that best suits your specific needs. Another option is to use Google Translate. However, the last option isn’t as accurate as this guide.
To compare the different energy prices we will need (an estimate of) your yearly usage. Find your usage on last year’s energy bill.
Not sure what your usage is?
Use one of our estimates by clicking on the icon that best matches your household. We calculate these estimates using the average usage in the Netherlands. It’s also possible to compare suppliers for gas and electricity seperately.
The second step is filling in your basic information. We only need your postal code and house number. Any additions to your house number can be added in the same box.
Select you current energy supplier in the drop-down list. You can find your supplier on your latest energy bill. If you currently don’t have a supplier, select ‘Weet ik niet/niet van toepassing’ (None). That’s the first option on the list.
After filling in the form, click on the orange button ‘Vergelijk energieprijzen’. This wil lead you to the next page, where all energy suppliers are ordered by price. Make use of the filter options to further select the supplier that suits you best.
Soort energie: geen voorkeur – duurzaam: Do you want green energy (duurzaam) or are you also okay with grey energy (geen voorkeur)? Green electricity is produced from sources that do not cause harmful effects on the environment. The electricity is generated by wind, water and sunlight. Grey electricity is produced from sources that have a negative impact on the environment. These sources include gas, coal and nuclear energy.
Energietarief: geen voorkeur – vast – variabel: Variable (variabel) or fixed prices (vast). With a variable price the supplier can change the rate during your contract. Most suppliers change these rates twice a year. A fixed rate will remain set for the duration of your contract. We recommend you chose the fixed (or ‘vast’) rate. This way you won’t be surprised by any changes in the tariff. And you’re comparing all suppliers on what you spend on a yearly basis. If you do not have a preference, you can select no preference (geen voorkeur).
Looptijd contract: geen voorkeur – 1 jaar – 3 jaar – 5 jaar – onbepaalde tijd
What do you want the duration to be of your contract? We recommend a 1 year contract (1 jaar), so you can profit from contracts with discount each year. If you do not have a preference you can select no preference (geen voorkeur) and if you want a contract for undetermined time, you can select onbepaalde tijd.
Prijsinformatie: prijs per jaar – prijs per maand
Do you want to know the prices per year (prijs per jaar) of per month (prijs per maand)?
Other filters include contracts with a present (aanbieding met kado), freely terminable contracts (vrij opzegbaar contract) and show products that are not available (toon niet beschikbare producten).
After filtering the energy suppliers, it’s time to pick one. The list of suppliers contains information to help you decide. When you’ve made your decision click ‘vraag nu aan’ to apply.
Note: Your list of suppliers will be different based on your yearly usage and basic information.
