@Walter Hinteler,
why are your monthly consumptions so much lower than ours?
we use a lot of Kw to do stuff like heat water and then store hot water whether we use it or not.

@farmerman,
I don't think that many use electricity for hot water - that's done via the central heating.


I think, the actual price is even lower today than in the graphic, because nowadays more and more households change the electricity continuously to the one with the best price. (I've just seen that 37 companies offer lower prices than my actual [local] supplier.)

We do not need any aircondition in northern Europe.
As well in Scandinavia as in USA much more lights are used in the house and around the house than in Germany.
At least that is my impression.

@saab,
yeh, maybe AC is the departure.
We also use gas or oil to heat water but most of ours are tank systems where the water heating goes on 24/7 whether or not we use the hot water.
I think in Germany or Scandanavia (Im guessing) you use tankless technology.
Weve switched over a few years ago and it saved us about 25 to 30% in our fuel bills

We have a tank, too. 24/7. Before the heating system was renewed, the apartment house was on oil, now on gas.

@Walter Hinteler,
Its the consumption that has a lower price...per unit you are paying far more . This means your 'green' electricity is far more expensive .
