Electricity bill that is (partly) based on peak consumption, definitively postponed until 2023

Due to the capacity tariff, the grid costs on our electricity bill will no longer be fully calculated on the basis of the amount of electricity we consume, but on the basis of peak consumption: those who use a lot of electricity at the same time will have to pay extra for this.

It should encourage us to spread our power consumption. If we all start to use more electricity in the coming years – including to heat our houses and charge our cars – this will demand a lot from our electricity grid. If everyone plugged in all those electrical appliances at the same time, our power grid would have to be expanded substantially, which is very expensive.
