Saving money on your energybill

You may have heard it before: "In the future all houses and other buildings in the Netherlands will be detached from the natural gas network." 
That might sound odd and maybe you think it does not concern you personally, but it will be the new reality here in Vlissingen as well. 


Before the year 2050 we will switch to sustainable sources for heating, hot water and cooking. This has been agreed upon in the national Klimaatakkoord
Just like any other municipality, the municipality of Vlissingen has made a strategy on how to achieve this: the Transitievisie Warmte. You can read more about this at: transitievisie warmte.


We cannot cook or heat our houses without using natural gas just like that. Heating systems in most houses have to be adapted. In most cases that means (extra) isolation, installing a heat pump and changing (for example) the cooker.

Everyone has to join us!

Whether you own or rent a house or building: everyone has to switch from natural gas to another sustainable source. This transition is called the ‘warmtetransitie’.
We can only do this together. But moreover: you can save on your private energy account and thus save money!

24 tips on how to save energy

Even with small alterations in your home you can save energy (natural gas and electricity). We have 24 tips for you, see the attached download. 
For example: tips on how to use radiator foil, to diminish your time in the shower, to turn your thermostat for central heating to a lower setting and so on. By applying all these tips together a family could save up to 750 cubic meter of natural gas; that is 750 euro annually!
