Energy is a hot topic right now, especially for homeowners. What do you have to do to generate your energy? Would not you have better transfer to another energy company tosave costs? Is it wise to make your house energy-efficient? All questions you need to find an answer to.
Everything has to be different
The reason that it is going to change is that we have to meet our national obligations for the climate agreement of 2050. That is all nice and nice, but that means that in the end eight million buildings in the Netherlands have to be made carbon-neutral. Spoiler: that will be a very difficult race. Heat pumps and heat systems (which are needed for that) are still far too expensive to replace the current systems and also the installation of a battery in solar panels is still very expensive.
As a consumer, what should you do now to plan your energy supply in the next few years? For example, if you rent a boiler, you should check when that expires. You may get something else in the next few years, but that does mean that you may pay a lot more. If you buy it is less of a problem: the government can not force us to buy a new boiler at the same time if the old one still does. But if it breaks down, then you are stuck if you have not taken it into account.
Even if, for example, you already have solar panels (if you do not have them: it will be slow time) it is useful to keep an eye on where you can, for example, lease a battery to make that power for yourself. because the netting is also foetsie in a few years. Do you want to compare the energy that you can save with and without a battery? Then you can always go and see what it could mean for you .
Whatever you do, make sure you know where you stand. It is too easy not to dwell on when your contracts expire, when it is time to replace, what the subsidy schemes still do and so on. You really have to bite through to come out with a smart strategy, because otherwise you might be in a few years for very unpleasant surprises.
