The most frequently asked questions about Energy Relax

Your electricity price is calculated based on your individual consumer profile. This profile has an hourly granularity. On the exchange, each of these hours is valued at a different price. The sum of the costs divided by the total quantity results in your individual energy price. The pricing is based on Swiss market prices.

Your electricity price consists of the following components according to importance:

  • Electricity prices on the futures market (exchange)
  • Risk surcharges, including for volume deviations and balancing energy
  • Administration and settlement fee

In addition, a grid usage fee is charged by your local grid operator.

Fill out the “Request a quote” form. After checking your load profile and contact details, a BKW employee will set up an automatic offer. Now you will receive an e-mail with your specific quotation price at the desired periodicity (e.g. daily or once a week). If the price is right for you, you can execute a binding purchase order on the customer portal with just a few clicks.

Customers with a valid contract for the Energy Relax product have access to the following information on the Energy Business customer portal:

  • Information on electricity market developments
  • Contract documents and bills
  • Information on your energy consumption/load profile
  • Possibility to conclude additional contract years

As an electricity consumer with an energy purchase of more than 100 MW, you have the right to benefit from a free market offer for electricity. A free market offer means that you can freely choose your electricity supplier and decide between different electricity tariffs/products. This allows you to choose the best supplier for your needs. Once you have concluded an energy supply contract, BKW will carry out the change of supplier for you and support you in switching from the basic supply to the free market.

If you buy electricity from BKW, simply look at your bill. If your electricity product is called Energy Green, Blue or Grey, you are still in the basic supply, otherwise you are in the free market. If you are not with BKW, ask your current supplier.

Yes, you can obtain and conclude an energy offer for several locations together.

 

For customers with a net purchase of less than 2 000 MWh, BKW assumes the risks for any quantity deviations in the supply. However, the customer is subject to a reporting obligation for foreseeable changes in the supply (e.g. addition of PV systems, etc.). For net purchases of more than 2 000 MWh, the costs/revenues incurred for deviations outside the contractually agreed tolerance limits are passed on to the customer.

The Relax and Relax in tranches procurement solutions do not offer the option of an open delivery share. If you want to freely combine the share of procurements on the forward and spot market, the Energy Balance product is the right one for you.

 

For access to the free market, you need a load profile measurement with hourly reading of the measurement data. If this is not the case, you can request such a measurement from your grid operator. If you are already a customer, you can find the metering data in the Energy Business customer portal.

No, BKW is one of the few energy suppliers that cover the whole of Switzerland. Our customers are SMEs that are represented in all Swiss cantons such as Zurich, Lucerne, Solothurn, Grisons, Zug, Aargau, St.Gallen, Bern, etc.
