Luminus, the country’s second-largest energy supplier, will stop offering fixed-price contracts to its customers from October 1, writes The Echo Friday. This type of contract will be suspended “until further notice” but current contracts will continue to be honored, the company says.
Luminus was the last “big” player that still offered this option to Walloon and Flemish consumers, but the supplier will end its offer of fixed-price electricity and gas supply contracts for new customers at the beginning of next month.
“The volatility we are seeing in the markets does not allow us to continue,” said spokesman Nico De Bie. “We tried to keep the offer as long as possible, but it became untenable. Offering this type of contract is no longer in anyone’s interest, neither the supplier nor the customer. »
Eneco, Engie and TotalEnergies have not offered new fixed contracts for months already.
