Today, more and more consumers are resorting to online price comparison sites to choose a supplier, service or any service provider. The energy sector is no exception and there are numerous comparison websites on the Internet. The procedure is quite straightforward and generally takes only a few minutes. Then the user need only wait to change supplier or start their new contract.
But what really happens once you have signed up to an online price comparison website? Energyprice.be reviews step by step the process taken by the various stakeholders in the energy sector after you have visited an online price comparison website.
Energyprice.be is a free service supplied by the company Wikipower. Wikipower is a private, independent initiative whose mission is to make energy cheaper to both the general public and companies by involving them in the collaborative projects it organizes. They include group purchases of gas and electricity. They gather together thousands of households allowing Wikipower to promote transparent competition among Belgian energy suppliers and negotiate the best energy supply deals.
Energyprice.be has two goals. First, it must provide consumers with the chance to take advantage of the liberalization of the market to change supplier and thus reduce their energy bills. To do so, it offers them the chance to compare the prices set by the various electricity and gas suppliers operating in Wallonia, Flanders and in the Brussels-Capital Region. The tool is available to individuals and professionals whose annual consumption does not exceed 50,000 kWh of electricity and 100,000 kWh of gas.
Next, it aims to inform consumers and raise their awareness of the sustainability of the various companies by clearly mentioning their energy generation mix (nuclear, gas, coal, wind…) on the supplier presentation page.
Users of Energyprice.be start by filling in the comparison form to get a precise comparison of the various deals offered by suppliers. The most important data at this stage are your postal code, electricity and/or gas consumption (in kWh or m³), the type of electricity meter (standard or dual or exclusive night) and, where applicable, the current supplier.
The results page then appears offering the user all of the deals available on the market arranged according to their consumption profile and search criteria. If you wish, you can set it so that just the five current best contracts are displayed. Then, the customer can select the supplier, the deal of their choice, and fill in the subscription form. This consists of three steps including a summary that includes all of the data entered.
