Dear All The latest topic that I can find regarding energy costs seems to be from 2016, I've tried contacting Portuguese energy companies via their websites, but that hasn't produced any sensible answers, so can anyone on this forum please help.

1. What are the charges for natural gas, supplied by the district network per KWh

2. What is the charge for electricity per KWh, assuming a "potencia" of 15 kva.

3. Can anyone recommend a supplier who speaks English, I'll be in the Algarve.

Many thanks

Geoff

I couldn’t find the potencia 15 kva has being used, also there are two costs, the cost of the energy and the cost associated with the potencia, so when comparing different providers you should take both into account, because they may have the same cost per kw/h but different cost for potencia making the final cost to be diferent

there is a page that allows you to compare based on your specific needs, you can change the language to English in the upper right corner.

Hi Sonia Thanks for the information, unfortunately that site doesn't give me the information that I'm looking for, I justwant the cost per KWh for gas and for electricity.

did you do a simulation? even a basic one? because if you do it gives you a list of all the providers and for each one of them if you click on the show+ button it gives you all the relevant information, including the cost per kw/h and potencia.
