Electricity & Gas
It is possible to buy these energy sources separately, but most of the time it is easier to buy them together. Most suppliers offer price discounts if you do. There is no choice of supplier for the infrastructure of the electricity and gas itself (the pipelines). In the cities Eindhoven and Helmond, Endinet powers the infrastructure for electricity and gas. In the other part of Southeast Brabant and in the Maastricht region, Enexis power the infrastructure for electricity and gas. You are free to choose the actual supplier for electricity and gas.
When you move into your new home, the power and gas meters need to be read and a supplier contracted to supply you. Your real estate agent can usually help you complete the necessary forms.
If you decide to change supplier you should call your preferred option. You will need your address, date of birth and meter readings.
