LONDON (CNI)--Dutch chemical industry association VNCI said Thursday that its members are being offered a 9% saving on their electricity bills in the first quarter of next year through a deal with private electricity and gas company ENECO Energie.
During the first quarter, the price of electricity will be set for the rest of the year, explained a VNCI official.
Deltalinqs, the association for industrial companies at the port of Rotterdam, is also offering its members the same deal.
The contract with ENECO runs until 1 January 2004 and follows a similar arrangement offered to VNCI and Deltalings members in 2001-02. The arrangement is being called Progine, which means project for combined energy buying.
VNCI said 35 of its member companies spread across 68 locations have signed up. These companies use an estimated 211 gigawatts a year, which is roughly the equivalent of 60 000 households.
