Bye, e.on…

Lago di Poschiavo As indicated here (“Electricity tariff increase”, 15 Oct), my electricity will soon come no longer from the normal local provider E.ON Bayern, but instead (due to the cancellation period, starting 1 Jan; cancellation confirmation arrived today) from Trianel – and then “naturally” the “eco” way.

Costs a tiny bit more than the standard electricity (85% non-regenerative) at current tariff, but noticeable less than at the future tariff (after the announced increase from 1 Jan 2008). And even less than E.ON’s eco electricity.

So my juice will then – don’t let beverage testers hear that! – come to 84% from the water of Lago di Poschiavo (photo from and the rest from other water, wind, biomass and a touch of solar energy.

Of course the best electricity is still that which is not consumed needlessly (e.g. standby)…

    Gratuliere! – bin derzeit noch selber bei der EnBW, trage mich aber mit dem Gedanken, “Rebellenstrom” aus dem Schwarzwald zu beziehen:

    Kostet etwas mehr als Trianel aber das Prinzip finde ich unterstützenswürdig ;-)

    Ach ja, die Bürger, die ihr eigenes Stromnetz gekauft hatten – schonmal davon gehört. Stimmt, ’ne gute Idee.
