The rates charged for gas and electricity are made up of three elements; each of these is determined by a specific party:
Thit is the gas or the electricity you use: its price is set by your supplier, since selling energy is a commercial activity subject to competition. In one way it is you, through the choice of your supplier, who controls this part of the rates. This price is influenced by the market: demand, weather conditions, world reserves, the international political situation.
This part of the bill is monitored by the regional regulator Brugel (website in French) that approves the rates proposed by the network operator Sibelga.
These are the same throughout the country and are set by the State.
