Taxes, duties and assessments
With a presumed consumption of 3,500 kWh per year in the basic service tariff, the tax and duty burden of the electricity price is approx. 52%. This includes the electricity tax, the levy according to the EEG, the levy according to KWKG, the offshore grid charge, the § 19-StromNEV surcharge, the § 18 levy for interruptible loads and the concession fee to cities and municipalities as well as value added tax.
Regulated network charges
The share of your electricity price, which must be paid to the network operator due to the use of the power grid, makes up about 21%. In turn, the grid operator invests in security of supply, ie in the maintenance, expansion and modernization of the supply network.
Electricity procurement, sales and service
The remaining 27% of your electricity costs will be used to generate electricity, that is, to generate or purchase electricity, to sell and service. The procurement costs are mainly determined by the increasing global demand for energy.
