How often do we think about the current that “flows” in our sockets? It must be admitted that we usually do this when we “psioczymy” for ever higher bills, which in cyclical periods we have to pay back. We complain then that a company that provides us with electricity every minute introduces new charges, raises prices for kilowatts and we can do nothing about it. But are you sure? After all, if a supplier does not like us, or rather the conditions on which he provides us with energy, we can change it. Below we will give you how to do it and we suggest whether it pays off.
There are several energy operators in our country. It is these operators who are responsible for the care of the entire infrastructure, and when any failure occurs, they must remove it. These companies also supply electricity to our homes. But they are not the only entities that can do it. Because in accordance with the law in force, other entities that use the network of the largest operators can do it too. Of course, they must sign a contract with them and they must pay them for “withdrawal” of the network. Because they want to get as many customers as possible, they must “fight” for the client, and the best way to obtain it is to lower the price. In addition, they offer many different types of tariffs, thanks to which we can choose the one that best suits our requirements.
How much you can earn from switching a power supplier
As you might guess, we should change the power supplier when it will pay off. In order to check before making a change about what amount we are talking about, it is worth analyzing it in the calculator which is on the website of the Energy Regulatory Office. We enter our zip code in it, and then a list of electricity suppliers who supply electricity in our region will appear on the screen. When we choose a company that currently provides us with electricity, we’ll get a summary of how much we can possibly save when the supplier changes. It turns out that these are quite high amounts, thanks to which we can save up to several hundred zlotys a year. It is even more profitable that by signing a new contract we can count on additional promotions and discounts.
Of course, before we decide to change the supplier, we must carefully read the contract and ask the company representative as many questions as possible. For it happens that in the contract there are many records with a “small print”, which means that we can even lose a change. Therefore, let us be careful and do not believe everything what the representative of a possible new supplier says.
How can you change the power supplier
Changing the power supplier is relatively easy, and we can do it in two ways. First, we can authorize a new supplier to represent us in front of the existing seller. And it is this new supplier who will do all the “work” for us. Secondly, we can deal with all of this ourselves, that is, we will make a contract for the old supplier ourselves and sign a contract with the other.
We must remember that we can change the electricity supplier any number of times. However, it should be known that usually in the contract is determined after what time we do not have to pay fees for breaking the contract. After such a change, usually our bills “go down” and we still have more money in the home budget.
