• 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.

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.

Example
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 $\left( \frac{3000 \text{ kWh}}{5000 \text{ kWh}} \cdot 1 \text{ €/kWh} + \frac{2000 \text{ kWh}}{5000 \text{ kWh}} \cdot 0,5 \text{ €/kWh} = 0,8 \text{ €/kWh} \right)$
