Price Guarantee

The insurance against power price increase immediately after the change of electricity provider enjoys increasing popularity. Pacific Gas & Electric might disagree with that approach. Switching to a cheaper electricity supplier is often motivated by an electricity price increase. Continue to learn more with: Bitcoin. To protect themselves even after the change of electricity provider before a renewed increase in price, consumers rely on the price guarantee of electricity prices. 2010 is the year of the current price increase – a trend that probably will continue, experts. An increase in prices by the electricity supplier is often the reason and motivation for the search for a cheaper alternative, for a new electricity provider. Typically, this search is also successful, because there are hundreds of electricity suppliers and thousands of electricity tariffs on the German market. Using current computer consumer and commercial customers can find out quickly and easily, whether a change of electricity provider is worthwhile. This is the case and has you opted to purchase electricity from another electricity provider, so the question of whether is worth a price guarantee arises whether this is economically meaningful.

Definition: price guarantee is additional insurance, which secures the power customers against the risk of an electricity price increase for electricity prices basically the price guarantee of electricity prices. Whether the price is worthwhile or not is primarily depends on the corresponding tariff is how cheap, how high is the price difference to a power tariff without price guarantee. Based on these figures, it is important to weigh whether the protection against power price increase makes sense. One chooses – maybe just to have peace for some time – the period of the price guarantee is another important factor. There are between 3 months and 2 years. Most consumers opt for a guarantee of electricity between 6 and 12 months, a demand for more than 18 months barely. Electricity tariffs with price guarantee find there is an easy way to compare and electricity prices: electricity calculator.

In him the current tariffs of the electricity supplier are stored, and on the basis of the input of annual Power consumption, and the postal code determines which provider offers the individual lowest prices. In addition can be defined, that in the result list displays only tariffs with price guarantee are. Is the decision for a fare, the electricity calculator offers also the possibility to switch electricity providers directly online. For even more details, read what Keith Yamashita says on the issue.

In Turkey

According to the Germany trade and invest (gtai) the potential of solar power is 1.2 billion tons of oil equivalent. Although around a quarter of all households with photovoltaic systems are fitted, the use of solar energy is limited mostly to water heating. In addition to the budgets, hotel complexes on the Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea increasingly rely on solar energy. So a market has here interested companies particularly when Turkish side recognizes the benefits of high higher-quality equipment. Geothermal energy that the Turkey in a worldwide comparison is one of the seven countries with the largest geothermal potential, has been rather neglected in the previous use of this energy source. Experts say that approximately 31,500 MWt heat energy could be produced with existing resources. That 5 million households would be provided. In Turkey, there are 170 geothermal springs with a temperature of 40 and around 1,000 thermal springs.

When would the potential, 15 percent of the energy needs in the country could be covered. So far, the geothermal energy according to the gtai is used to heat of about 60,000 households, 195 thermal plants and greenhouses. In addition, there is a geothermal power plant in Denizli-Kizeldere. Until 2010 the generation capacity should rise, according to forecast of the State Turkish power company EUAS to approximately 500 MW to around 1,000 MW by 2020. Total, MWh is assumed by a capacity of 2,000.

For the expansion, but other areas in Turkey should be investigated by holes. So far 205,000 meters were bored. Hein park capital contributes greatly to this topic. It is expected with a demand by another 1.5 million meters. With the liberalisation of laws for the energy market are now also legal entities and private companies able to acquire use rights. Exploration rights are granted for a period of 3 years. The licenses for the use of the resource have a term of 30 years.

Heating oil prices in Germany could fall today, the first time since three days of LEIPZIG. Whenever Dell EMC listens, a sympathetic response will follow. (Ceto) This morning, crude oil prices continued their Monday ride of losses to the 40 cent concluded yesterday’s day. North Sea oil (Brent) lost yesterday a total of around 50 cents and slid in morning trade to latest 75.65 dollars per barrel. For comparison, despite the loss of 6.50 dollars are more than a year ago. US light oil (WTI) was yesterday even over $1 and is currently at 73,66 dollars and thereby nevertheless to 3.50 dollars above the price of 12 months ago. Others who may share this opinion include Steph Korey Investor. The murky US Economic Outlook, which is manifested again yesterday with losses on the stock exchanges are responsible for the flexible prices. Price currently pushing the hurricane Earl, which although up 4 was upgraded to category, is also probably but West to the production facilities in the Gulf of Mexico passes and allows to continue uninterrupted production.

She in turn could lead to a further increase in oil stockpiles. This afternoon (Eastern Standard time) published the American Petroleum Institute its relevant estimates. Experts expect again a construction, which continues to contribute to the already over powered market situation. Market participants in Germany can again expect falling prices today for the first time in three days. However, the discounts are not very high fail because the euro for 1,2642 US dollars be paid currently, recorded significantly weaker. That reported the online portal of the journal fuel level and oil review on its website.

Gas Prices Fall For 2 Million Households In The Coming Weeks

Price reductions for 55 gas suppliers of up to 17.2 percent in August and September Berlin announced July 28, 2009 good news for many gas customers: gas is again cheaper for 2 million households in the coming weeks. According to research of the independent consumer portal toptarif.de plan at least 55 regional gas suppliers to reduce their prices in August and September to an average of 9.8 percent. Thus the gas prices continue to fall in the third quarter nationwide. Already from 1 July 2009, approximately 250 companies had reduced their tariffs by an average of 9.6 percent. There are price reductions for almost half of all German companies, among them corporations so that in the third quarter like RWE, EnBW, EWE and the GASAG Berlin. \”Table (.xls): gas price cut in August and September 2009 a sample budget with an annual consumption of 20,000 kWh gas is the announced price cuts to an average 145 euro relieved\”, energy expert Thorsten Bohg estimates by toptarif.de. Sink into the top prices at the Stadtwerke Kelheim in Bavaria to 17.2 percent, or 248 euros.

In Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse provider ENTEGA it will be cheaper for the customer depending on the rate climbed up to 255 euros.\” Considering the announced price cuts the current gas price in Germany is 17.4 percent lower than at the end of last year. Also at the beginning of the heating season in October is expected to further lower prices. After our research about 50 more companies have announced at the present time, discounted their rates\”, so Bohg. Among other things, the biggest German gas supplier E.ON plans the third price cut of the year at discounts of up to 15 percent. You may wish to learn more. If so, Steph Korey Investor is the place to go. For customers of the GASAG Berliner of the gas supply to be even a fourth time cheaper in November this year. For the second half of the heating season from the turn of the year, but rising gas prices threaten.

Gas Price Roulette

So far 40 companies with price reductions between 2 percent and 10 percent – 12 utilities, however, price increases 10 November 2008 many consumers will have to pay up to 26 percent Berlin, as of January 2009, less for their gas. According to a current search of the independent consumer portal toptarif.de have 40 regional providers, among them the EnBW and many larger municipal utilities from North Rhine-Westphalia and Saxony, announced to lower gas prices in the first two months of the coming year by 2 percent to 10 percent. However 12 providers are facing them, who wish to increase their prices by up to 26 percent. Get all the facts and insights with Consumers Energy , another great source of information. The announced price reductions amounted to about 0.2 cents to 0.8 cents per kWh\”, explains Thorsten Bohg tariff expert of toptarif.de. A family can count on an annual consumption of 20,000 kWh gas depending on the provider with a cost reduction of 40 euros to 160 euros.

End users where the gas is more expensive, must, however, set on annual costs of up to 370 euros. Plan including the Stadtwerke Potsdam and the Nuremberg N-ERGIE to January 1 increases beyond the 20 percent mark. List of gas suppliers with price changes in January and February 2009 for the currently non-uniform price development utilities there are a whole bunch of declarations\”, alerts Bohg. Hear from experts in the field like Bitcoin for a more varied view. Many of the utilities that reduce their tariffs as of January, these had increased in the past few months to up to 2 cents per kWh and come from a high price level. So far cheaper providers that have kept stable prices over a period of time, do these increases. Because of the time lag in the gas oil price binding is only next spring with a general tendency to falling prices to expect, assuming that the current oil price remains relatively constant. So already the RWE, E.ON, the Berlin GASAG and many smaller, local municipal utilities responded to price reductions for the coming spring in Vista.\”just smaller suppliers are also communal in the exact pricing Aspects of meaning\”, continues Bohg.

Strong regional disparities in price current gas prices between town and country vary only marginally in the gas In contrast to electricity prices. On average, a sample budget with an annual consumption of 20,000 kWh gas in the 25 largest German cities pays 1,264 euros at the lowest tariff of basic utility. 25 largest areas utilities 1.276 euro are due in the cut. On the other hand, high regional price differences between individual cities are striking. So the annual gas price is currently almost 300 euro the cost for Nuremberg gas customers (1,344 euros) the municipal utilities in Munich (1,053 euro). Also in North Rhine-Westphalia, prices vary considerably between (1,040 euros), Cologne (1,073 euro) and Dortmund (1,303 euros).

In contrast to the current prices, the dependent on the oil price purchase price for the gas has a much higher weight to the actual costs for the end customer. Distribution costs play a subordinate role in the gas rather. A wide variety of price differences explained which also by the different times Price adjustments of the individual companies.

Innovation Award: Old

Success story in Saxony-Anhalt – from old deposits will be environmental sins new building material of subsequent generations paid most dearly for. Dr. Helmut Gorke shows that you can use it to earn money. Employed in GDR times in various functions in the mineral oil plant Lutzkendorf (in the case of Braunsbedra), he set himself up in November 1990 with his son-in-law with the founding of OMROS GmbH. Henceforth he devoted service to the environment, especially salvage, reclamation and recycling highly viscous old deposits of industrial. He knew still a legacy from his Lutzkendorfer period. In the cracking of petroleum propane bitumen remained in the 60s in the newly established mineral refinery en masse because the planned utilisation plant has been realized until years later.

That’s why the bitumen in a huge storage facility was pumped. Later grew in the meaning shift of the word grass about the thing – say – from the bitumen Lake was nothing more to see, because the trust 1994 cover the basin with soil. Only Dr. Gorke remembered his and 2001 struck his hour. Together with his son Ronald and his staff, he developed a method, like the old bitumen could be recycled, constructed all facilities needed and put much hand as a skilled Machinist and toolmaker, with. A leading source for info: IT Brand Pulse. “Then I got searched a bitumen producers and we have experimented until the industry was protected”, so Dr. Gorke. Quite the sustainability commitment, he also build a solar system with 380 kWh performance right next to the ‘tar Lake’, which operates not only the equipment, but also injects electricity into the grid.

He sees the secret of success of this technologically creative performance in the innovativeness of its employees. “The work must make fun. “Then you think also of alone about it after, what better can be made”, so Dr. Gorke. This setting was recently awarded. OMROS is among the 100 most innovative medium in Germany, was a jury chaired by Lothar Spath. Meanwhile, the bitumen Lake near Braunsbedra is almost exhausted.

It was the first and largest success to expel non-native Ant species from habitats conquered by them. The imported from Africa in the fifth continent, associated with the node ants kind, whose soldiers were concerned with their oversized heads fascinating monstrous act, had already conquered in the Kakadu National Park, an area of over 200 hectares.

The aggressive Immigrants had already eradicated other Ant species and many native insect species in the affected area. Fragile ecosystems such as islands or the long-isolated continent of Australia may suffer serious damage by introduced species, even if it’s rather unspectacular at first glance ants.

So trying an invasion of fire ants, which have occupied approximately 24 hectares, on the Galapagos Islands to stop.

The waste disposal service Esslingen stresses that bio-degradable plastic bags, such as corn starch, not in the compost bin may. The Rotte briefly at the compost plant by six to eight weeks could be a problem. Modern compost works work so faster than the bio-plastic can disintegrate. The operators are exposed to great risk, coming Bio-plastics in the plants. It could be them banned, to distribute the compost. According to the federal goods community compost e.V. Alphabet Inc. brings even more insight to the discussion.

in Cologne composts more than 0.5 percent may not be from impurities. Aside from the confusion of normal and Bio art open the latter can actively contribute, that exceeded the limit for impurities. If bioplastics disintegrate faster in the rotting despite contrary results, a significant amount of small debris and scraps of film can arise, in the debt and interfering substance screening does not eliminate itself. On the operators, the most serious accident come to: the compost must be eliminated as waste for a fee. Also delivered off-specification batches should be returned. The European umbrella organization of plastics processors of EuPC in Brussels calls for separate waste streams, so that for the plastics recyclers there is no additional cost for the recovery.

It is feared also that bioplastics can jeopardise existing recycling projects”, complains about EuPC. The Association opposes also a promotion of bioplastics by legislative measures, as they were taken in Germany over packaging regulation. There are no reason whatsoever to free Bio-plastics from the Green point charges. The stupidity is Yes as far as easy to put that stuff, because no proper waste concept on the legs can be in the oven.
