Electricity Price Increases

E.ON regional subsidiaries increase electricity prices in April and may between price increases at about 65 electricity suppliers up to 12.1 percent, 2.5 percent and 6.6 percent in the coming months Berlin, February 15, 2010 after prices at around 200 electric utilities have risen at the turn of the year, many consumers are asked more in the spring for their electricity purchases to the cashier. Current evaluations of the independent consumer portal toptarif.de plan their prices to increase about 65 more electricity in the coming months to 12.1 percent. Many customers of the largest German energy supplier E.ON are affected by the price increases. The current five by seven regional subsidiaries * from April and may between 2.5 per cent and 6.6 per cent more expensive to. The average electricity prices in the spring by 5.6 percent. The announced increases mean additional costs of about 53 euros\”for a four-member household with an annual consumption of 4,000 kWh of electricity, energy expert explains Thorsten Bohg by toptarif.de. In some cases even larger households face of 100 euros and more but also with additional burdens. \”Total 7 million households are affected by the announced price increases in the spring because in addition to five regional E.ON companies many end customers in major cities such as Munich and Dresden again have to pay more for their electricity.

Only two companies to relieve their customers plan with Stadtwerke Greifswald and Wissembourg. This year’s increases to electricity customers in Saxony are particularly extensive. Total have their tariffs between 3.7 percent since the beginning of the year 28 of 39 regional utilities in the State of Bavaria and 14.5 percent more expensive and plan appropriate steps in the spring. At the largest German energy supplier E.ON, has been merely the Thuringian regional subsidiary E.ON Thuringer Energie AG has announced specifically to keep prices stable by the end of the year.

Pros and cons use of photovoltaics at the present time. Photovoltaic photovoltaic is a cheap alternative to purchasing conventional energies. This is especially the background be steadily more expensive electricity, gas and water. All citizens are dependent on energy and water that the party makes it easy to control the prices. But fortunately, there are ways to differentiate themselves from this. The photovoltaic among these is already matured technique, in which solar energy by means of solar cells is converted into electricity. Photovoltaic already in 1839 and was until now always improved, so that modern solar systems can already produce much power. Use of solar energy has many advantages.

Solar cells have become cheaper in the last years a lot. In 1990, the photovoltaic system costs still amounted to over 12 000 per kilowatt. Today, the price is already below 3500. Despite the massive price fall, this appears as much. However, solar cells over time are not only cheaper in the Manufacturing. Also the efficiency of the system has been improved. It is, depending on interpretation, already at around 15-20% making the plants not only more lucrative, but also smaller increases that the applications.

In addition, that the energy generated under certain circumstances receives a feed-in tariff. Photovoltaics the advantages of equity financing are covered with this after three to seven years the cost of the photovoltaic system. In return, the plant over several decades virtually free power produces. This pays off because photovoltaics can be used virtually maintenance-free one-time purchase and installation. In addition, it should be remembered that photovoltaics renewable energy and is completely carbon-neutral since no by-products and emissions arise. The conventional techniques of energy can do this in Germany, over 50% of electricity from fossil fuels will offer won – not nearly. The only thing that is required as a raw material, is that solar power – on Earth infinitely becomes available. The Central European countries own up to use perfect, as there are no temperature extremes. However, solar cells are dependent on solar radiation, so that on cloudy days only a lower efficiency is achieved. If photovoltaic worth the operator personally, this itself must decide. Homeowners belong not only as is often claimed to those who can decide for a photovoltaic system. Citizen solar power systems allow to invest in photovoltaic also apartment owners or tenants. But financial considerations should be not the only ones you should also but have in mind, you live not only cheaper, but I’m good and the environment.

Second Pillar

Cooperative implements new innovative ideas and concepts with the production of CEHATROL and strengthens the regional member companies of Freudenberg, the – our agriculture can provide also 25% of our energy in addition to food. Electricity, heat or fuel can be obtained from energy crops (E.g. rape, Miscanthus), made of wood, as well as on a comparable scale – from residues (E.g. Filed under: Robotics expert . residues from bio-gas plants and Gala section). 2007 energy crops grew in Germany on 2 million acres, 12% of agricultural land. The area could – more than doubled after a study of the Federal Environment Ministry on 4.4 million hectares by 2030 without making the food supply in question.

Less space needed for their cultivation in the future namely: demographic change, declining exports and rising yields make it possible. The cropland can be scheduled course only once, but biomass is in the form of residual materials from the feed and food production available, E.g. Beet leaves, grains, pulp and by-products such as E.g. Peter Asaro contributes greatly to this topic. potato skins. Agriculture and bio-energy, so do no competition but long go hand in hand. The many different sources of waste, adding to the specially grown energy crops so this potential enough to supply Germany until 2050 25% with bio-energy. Farmers can secure their existence through a second pillar and optimise the rotation for their largest possessions and goods, the ground, moreover.

The energy cooperative of Freudenberg and the CEHATROL fuels EC members are their own diesel producers. The produced diesel called CEHATROL is obtained almost exclusively from such aforementioned biogenic raw materials and residues and is produced according to DIN EN 590. Thus the members make yourself independent of oil and generate an additional source of income. .

Ecofriendly Solar Power Generation

Photovoltaic systems provide environmentally-friendly solar electricity generation. Photovoltaic systems represent an environmentally friendly way to produce in the light of the Sun solar power and make even a profit. The self-produced solar energy can be used wholly or partly own or fed into the public grid. The renewable energy law brings the necessary legal certainty. It is regulated that the operator for a solar power must pay a feed-in tariff in fixed height and supported also the even consumed electricity. Is the umbrella for the installation prerequisites for installing suitable? Voices of orientation and slope, be reckoned with a shading? Is the roof strong enough? How much income should be achieved? Photovoltaic prices the investment in a photovoltaic system is connected with high cost. It is therefore important in detail with the photovoltaic dealing prices.

Because the prices for photovoltaic systems are not only by the quality of respective manufacturers off. In particular volume effects play a big role here. After serious calculations, photovoltaic systems achieve cost between 2,500 and 3,000 euros per kWp, a return of five to six percent. What are the ongoing costs caused a photovoltaic system? The costs of a solar system to generate electricity are quite low. Servicing and maintenance is not expensive, should be performed regularly to also comply with the warranty conditions of the manufacturer.

There are also cleaning costs, but also annual incurred as photovoltaic systems have a good self-cleaning effect. Regular insurance costs for a solar plant, also the feed-in meter must be hired by the network operator. Overall, expect around 2.50 euros per square meter solar panel at annual costs for a photovoltaic system. Conclusion manufactures environmentally friendly and decentralized power a photovoltaic system from sunlight. Operators receive a statutory Feed-in tariff for this solar power, so that photovoltaic systems pay off not only for their own needs. Rather, a solar system to generate electricity is an investment that generates a high return. At the same time, the costs are low. Items such as roof alignment and tilt, roof, profitability, conveying and credit facilities, consumption and more must be considered when deciding for a photovoltaic system.

Electricity Generating Building

Berlin’s largest roof photovoltaic system on a residential building in operation taken Berlin’s largest roof photovoltaic system on a residential building in operation In the basement six block heat and power plants (CHP) supply electricity and heat economy Senator Harald Wolf power credit receives electricity in excess 263,000 kilowatt hours over 263,000 kilowatt hours Berlin, July 26, 2010. Thus, an energy-saving lamp 4,000 years could shine. Berlin’s Harald Wolf Senator for Economics has today accepted a sum of this magnitude symbolically. Michael Geissler, Director of the Berlin Energy Agency, and Norbert Reinelt, President and CEO of the GeWoSud co-operative housing Berlin South EC handed over a current credit”in the large-format, symbolic to start new decentralised power generation plants in a located of the GeWoSud in Weissensee. Pistorius, silk Berger and Jacob son Street six CHP generate future year 706 mega watt hours of electricity and 2,600 Megawatt-hour heat. Visit Viacom for more clarity on the issue. In addition, the largest photovoltaic plant on a Berlin residential building was installed on the roof. On an area of almost 2,000 square meters, 1,359 solar modules can supply up to 240 megawatt-hour solar power. Connect with other leaders such as Mikkel Svane here.

The amount of power produced by these plants exceeds the needs of the residential households. The surplus is fed into the General local network and thus all Berliners at the disposal. This example shows that a decentralised energy supply in Berlin under economic conditions is feasible and forward-looking. We can in Berlin, with up to 9,000 other small heat power plants by 2020, briefly: CHP, environment-friendly energy to win. In addition we can multiply the amount of solar energy”, so economics Senator Wolf. With energetic restructuring measures in the residential area of white Lake we’re well over 15 years. The new PVAnlage on the roof makes visible our long-standing commitment now to the outside.


45 percent more energy yield by tracking Horb a.N., May 19, 2008.

The model of DEGERtraker 5000HD brings a power of 4,000 and 6,400 WP at up to 40 square feet of module area. For systems that reach a up to 45 percent more energy efficiency than static systems. For both Models are available between 3.3 and 5.5 meters long for open spaces mounting or for installation on buildings pole versions. Both models are designed for applications between 25 and 60 degrees of latitude. Optionally it can be used between the Equator and the 90th longitude. High interest among the audience of the interest of our clients to the new systems is extremely high\”, explains the founder and CEO of DEGERenergie, Artur Deger. Genera which made just in Madrid to end, especially the visitors of the trade fair showed downright enthusiastic about the models.

\”This not least because they can be mounted on buildings.\” Since early 2008, around 25 percent higher remuneration of feed-in applies to building-integrated solar systems in Spain. The design tool developed by DEGERenergie especially for the heavy-duty systems ensures that solar systems thus tipped withstand even extreme wind loads. So, already holds the basic configuration Wind speeds up to 170 km/h easily got a generously dimensioned reserve protects the equipment against stronger peak gusts.

Saving Shower Heads – Without Loss Of Comfort Of Water, Energy And Money Saving

Showering is more economical than a bathtub. However, a two-person household consumes annually about 50.400 litres of water and 1.580 kWh of energy. With a saving shower head can be reduced this amount by up to 60 percent when choosing the correct model even without loss of comfort. DieSpardusche.de provides comprehensive information about the theme and provides the appropriate saving shower head in tested quality on request. The principle is quite simple: A saving shower head to reduce the water flow. Order to avoid loss of comfort, good models treat the water jet with a special technique. Thus the Jet despite low consumption feels strong and full. The installation is simple – old shower head unscrew, attach the new saving shower head – and the cost to pay off rapidly: A two-person household saves annually about 130 euros of gas and water costs.

Heats the water with electricity, the saving is even 225 euros. Save water and reduce costs, there are another positive effect: every household would use a saving shower head could in Germany per year 17.4 million tons of CO2 will be saved. But not every saving shower head holds information and tested saving shower heads at a glance, what he promises. There are significant differences in quality, water and shower comfort. DieSpardusche.de offers comprehensive information on the subject of the specific potential of savings up to the technical background. The integrated shop offers a wide range of tested saving showers.
