What is the energy advance invoice?
The energy advance invoice is the monthly amount you pay for your energy. This is also called advance invoice, advance amount or installment amount.
How is the advance amount calculated?
The installment amount is the cost of using energy. This is an deposit, because the energy supplier makes an estimate of what you will use in energy in the coming year. An energy supplier only knows what your actual energy consumption is after a year. This means that the installment amount is also called an advance invoice or advance amount. The costs consist of delivery costs, network management costs, energy tax, ODE and VAT.
Average advance amount
An advance amount is always calculated on the average of your energy consumption of the previous year. On this basis, you will receive an annual invoice at the end of the year, stating the actual amount. Often, any welcome discounts are also included in the determination of the amount.
