  13. Select the price limits for consumption-dependent work prices

    • Zone tariff
      An average energy price is calculated for all energy areas up to the amount of energy consumed annually. The amount of energy consumed annually is first divided between the individual work prices or zones and then added up.

    • Graduated tariff
      With the graduated tariff, the energy price changes abruptly when a certain amount of energy is consumed. According to this, the energy price results directly from the amount of energy consumed.

      Working price 1: from 0 kWh ; 1 EUR/kWh
      Working price 2: from 3000 kWh ; 0,5 EUR/kWh
      Amount of energy used: 5000 kWh

      Feed-in tariff paid out
      Zone tariff: 0,8 €/kWh $ \left( \frac{3000 \text{ kWh}}{5000 \text{ kWh}} \cdot 1 \text{ €/kWh} + \frac{2000 \text{ kWh}}{5000 \text{ kWh}} \cdot 0,5 \text{ €/kWh} = 0,8 \text{ €/kWh} \right)$
      Graduated tariff: 0,5 €/kWh+
