Influence Energy Meter on the Electricity Price
The electricity price per kWh depends, among other things, on the type of electricity meter you have chosen. We distinguish three electricity tariffs and meters:
- Single rate meter: The price per kWh of a single rate meter is always the same, regardless of the part of the day.
- Dual rate meter: The price per kWh of a dual rate meter can be different for peak and off-peak hours, generally lower during off-peak hours.
- Exclusive night meter: an electricity rate that can only be used during off-peak hours.
The day and night rate and the night-only rate will disappear with the arrival of the capacity rate in Flanders. From 1 January 2023, the network operators will no longer distinguish between peak and off-peak hours. This change only applies to the distribution tariffs, energy suppliers can still make a difference in the price per kWh during peak and off-peak hours.
