The new package will, as of this coming Friday, offer consumers a fixed tariff of 18 cents per KWh, or 17 cents per KWh for online applications, as well as a 50 percent discount on fixed costs for the first six months if applications are lodged by a December 31 deadline. Tariff levels of rival suppliers currently average 23 cents per KWh.
The packages will be offered as one-year agreements and include household coverage for emergency technical support. The insurance policy incorporated into new agreements will entitle holders up to five visits per year from tradesman such as plumbers and electricians and cover damages up to 100 euros per visit.
