Traders and individuals secure energy revolution, grid expansion against rising electricity prices with an own PV system from FRANKFURT, July 2013 and long term rising prices for oil and gas will increase further the power in Germany. Even according to conservative estimates, the price of electricity could be in 2030 at over 40 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh). Against this background, it is economically sensible to take the own power into their own hands and to receive as little power as possible from the public network for businesses and private individuals. In particular, its own solar plant brings sustainable security of supply over decades industrial and private consumers. Through our own power production they can ensure today that their electricity costs will be in 2020 or 2030 are still in current prices per kWh”, says Axel Berger, field Director photovoltaics at the Saint-Gobain building distribution Germany GmbH (SGBDD). With this economic investment for the future “to the plant owner in the long term regardless of electricity price rises.” Electricity costs currently produces a PV plant in the industrial area the stream at a usual depreciation period of 20 years for the average about 12 cents per kWh. The current prices of energy suppliers by 20 cents are today (net). Thus a reduction of eight cents per kWh is due to the investment in a solar system.

The higher the base load share, so the high energy demand on the day or the week, more of the own solar electricity can a company even use. “The current surplus on strong sunny days is fed still in power and in accordance with the renewable energy Act” (EEG) settled. “As a general rule, that power consumption, load profile so the temporal distribution and the size of the photovoltaic system must be well co-ordinated”, Berger stressed. Increase efficiency in the meantime power storage even once dramatically increase the efficiency of a solar plant.
