Energy supplier Octa+, also active in Flanders, will stop supplying gas and electricity to around 17,000 customers in Brussels.
According to CEO Etienne Rigo, the current prices and stricter regulation in the Brussels-Capital Region leave the company no other choice. Strict rules surrounding customers with payment difficulties “endanger the survival of the company,” Rigo said The time.
The company has therefore informed the Brussels network operator Sibelga that it is surrendering its supply license and that it will no longer supply customers in Brussels with gas and electricity at the beginning of next year. The customers will still receive a final invoice and those who still have money to pay will receive it back.
Rigo emphasizes that Octa+ will remain active in Flanders and Wallonia. ‘We still win customers there’.
