Fastned lowers charging rates in the Netherlands in response to VAT cuts

4 July 2022


Good news in times of rising prices. The Dutch government has temporarily lowered taxes on energy sales, in an effort to compensate for the sharply increased energy costs. From 1 July 2022 until 1 January 2023, the reduced VAT rate of 9% applies to electricity sales in the Netherlands. In line with these changes, we’re lowering our charging rates in the Netherlands. 

Our reduced rates in the Netherlands until 2023

The standard charging rate at our stations is now € 0,62 per kWh, down from € 0,69 per kWh. Gold members now charge at € 0,41 per kWh, down from € 0,45 per kWh previously. The VAT rate reduction only applies to charging prices, membership costs continue to fall under the standard VAT-rate of 21%. The monthly membership rate of € 11,99 remains unchanged.

Use the Fastned app 

We welcome all EV-drivers to Fastned stations. This includes customers who don’t use the Fastned app, but a general charging card for charging at various providers. However, prices of these charging cards may differ from Fastned’s own prices. To ensure that the new reduced rate applies to your charging session, please use the Fastned app, or pay by using the QR code.
