I also notice on EDP website they are advertising an offer called Verde which to me is the same as BTN simples tariff which I  and the majority of us are on but with a few extra discounts/benefits.
and here are the five  extras (senses as they call it) benefits/discounts
wonder why they are advertising these when anyone over 10.35kva are going to be put on a different tariff from 1st July 2012 due to the de-regulation. Mind Boggles.

Yes J2me at least it gives us some time to try and work out our next step along the way (for those of us on 10.35kva or less). All these websites they have given you for change of electricity it seems the majority are not based in Portugal. Galp are mentioned but when you go on the website it only seems to mention gas. Wish they were all as simple as the UK ones, changing supplier in UK is a doddle, but the Portuguese always seems to make it difficult and go all round the houses.
As the Beatles once said "we can work it out" hopefully.Big smile

Just found this info on another expats forum re EDP:
According to AFPOP (association for property owners in Portugal), the 2 year transitional period starts in July for customers with contracts above 10.35kva.
During this period, the regulated prices remain in effect and so does the bi-horario rates.

For customers with contracts to supply under 10.35kva, the transitional period starts in July 2014.

And the take up time for the offer has long expired. I have a voucher for €3,92 in my pocket ready to spend in Continente later.

The offer itself expires at the end of the year and it will be interesting to see what comes along in its place.

That contract that Tom signed up to might be all right. I would be inclined to follow his lead. Do we sign-up at Modelo? Could it possibly be that easy? (Ever the optimist!!)

Has anyone received any formal advice from EDP? Presumably their services are being picked up by another provider? if not many of us are going to be faced with arriving home to no electricity!

Not heard anything more as yet. It would have been nice for EDP to contact all its customers either by post or email to let us know whats going on.  Disgraceful that they can string people along like this, keeping them in the dark. How many people own property but do not live there full time, how are they supposed to find things out and make the necessary arrangements.   
I read on another forum that one guy had rung EDP  and this is what he understood from the conversation. They will stop supplying domestic premises (Households) with electricity from the end of this month. For those of us who do not change to a new supplier existing tariffs will cease and charges will be set by the government regulator every 3 months, ever increasing until we have all changed to new suppliers. 
So if we don't change who is going to send us future bills, is it still going to be EDP? Who knows. Another Fiasco in the making comes to mind.
Another person actually rang the Resident & the Portugal news to see if they would do an article on it but he said it seems they can't be bothered or they do not have the correct information to publicise it. So going off that even the press don't know whats going on.

Any update, experience or advice for us to consider regarding the switching would be appreciated.  Confused

5% discounts etc.

Whether anyone will be willing or able to set up a 'price comparison and switching' website  service without charging for it remains to be seen.

But as we were saying in our local facemail encounter situation the other day, you can be sure that the various offers will soon come flooding through our doors.

The forward thinking company that  translates these into English will get a lot more business down here at least.
