Energy is more expensive than it has been for a long time – and that’s not just due to the new CO₂ tax. If you want to save, don’t wait until fall, but act now. An overview.
Record prices and higher bills: Private households currently have to spend around 500 euros more on energy than a year ago, as calculated by the online comparison portal Verivox. And that’s not just due to the new CO₂ tax, which has made it more expensive since the start of the year. The price of gas has been rising for months. Heating oil is as expensive as it was in 2018. If you want to keep your spending under control, you need to act now, advises Hans Weinreuter, energy expert at the Rheinpfalz consumer center. There are currently savings opportunities for owners of oil heating systems. Motorists, gas and electricity customers can also get the most out of the balcony with a smart strategy and self-generated solar power.
