A simple and quick process.
More information for your switch
What is? How much does it cost?
The liberalized energy market allows consumers to choose their electricity and/or natural gas supplier, choosing the solution that best fits their needs.
In the liberalized energy market, energy prices are determined by the supplier and not by ERSE.
This process has no associated cost and can be done at any time. Only the tariff will be changed, according to the supplier of your choice.
Until when do I have to change?
The transitional period of switching to the retail market runs until the end of 2020.
During this period, while staying on the regulated market, it will be able to maintain its current supplier, with a transitory tariff set by ERSE and subject to quarterly review.
Regulated price conditions
According to Ordinance no.348/2017, from January 1, 2018, traders can practice tariffs similar to the regulated tariff.
If you want to have access to these conditions and they are not made available by your supplier, you can request the termination of the contract and contract this tariff with the Supplier of Last Resort.
How to change
The switch of energy supplier in 6 steps
Characterize your energy consumption and indicate your current supplier. Poupa Energia simulates and show you, based on your current supplier conditions, which tariff is the best option for you.
See the list of tariffs on Poupa Energia, check the savings you can get and immediately formalize your intention to adhere to a tariff. Poupa Energia will send a pre-contractual form to its new supplier.
Your future retailer will contact you within 48 hours (except weekends and holidays) to formalize the change process and request additional information to be sent.
Your future supplier, after confirm all the information, will formalize the request for switch in the GPMC portal (Management of the Process of Switching Supplier). This may take up to 60 days.
During the switching process it will be necessary to finish the contractual relationship with your current supplier.
To do this, it is necessary to give your consumption information in your smart meter, evaluate and validate the amount to be invoiced in this transition phase. The energy distributor has a key role in this process, as it is his responsibility to give information about your smart meter.
Your new supplier will let you know the status of the process and when the transition will be completed. You will only have to pay the last bill to the previous supplier, thus ending the contract between the two.
