Providers calculates the tariffs base on households: 1pers. , 2 pers, 3 pers, then bigger 4/5 pers,
If you go on this sites , enter your code, house nbr and nbr of people in yr household then you get and average of year and monthly payment.

Further you need to make the sum of:
1) the cost of {electricity + gas + transport} + 2) the cost of { clean/drink water + tax for clean/drink water)

1) based on yr provider price can go from 147 to 156,50 euros monthly

2) water for 3 pers. one pay at least 94,50 euros/monthly

so only for (1 {elec/gas} + 2{clean/drink water) one pay average for 3 pers / montly at least = 246.25 euro’s. (this is a prepaid amount which is submit to correction end of “energy year”. Based on experience I learn that you have to pay supplementary money)

to this amount you need to add the monthly

- 3) the tax for garbage, (Tarief Afvalstoffenheffing 2014: € 372,50 per huishouden) 31,04 euro/monfly

- 4) the tax for water (cleaning, works and water protection): at the moment bout 31, 25 euro / montly


Therefor if your “Basic (Electricity, Heating, Water, Garbage) for 85m2 Apartment” is for 3 pers I suggest you change your total amount as (1+2+3+4) as the montly total is higher than your own input.



As an household of 3 pers. pays (for at least monthly (1+2)+3+4) = (Electricity, Heating, Water, Garbage) =

246.25 + 31.04 + 31,25 = 308,54 euro’s /monthly
