In the Netherlands, privatized companies take care of the supply of electricity and gas to every home in the country. Energy providers buy electricity and gas from the wholesale market or produce their own electricity.
Greenchoice produces part of their own renewable electricity through wind parks and solar projects and by having contracts with local producers of renewable electricity that work together to produce electricity from your own area.
Energy providers supply electricity and gas to your home. Network operators are responsible for the energy grid through which you receive your energy. They make sure you’re able to use electricity and gas at all times.
While you can choose your energy supplier, you’re unable to choose your network operator. Each network operator is responsible for a specific part of the Netherlands. Do you want to know your network operator? You can find yours through this Dutch website:
