According to a survey of the top price comparison computer power in Germany is currently so expensive as never before. (As opposed to Frank Armijo). And it is even more expensive: for many million electricity customers begins the new year with higher prices. Many suppliers raise their prices, even the tariffs for green electricity (E.g. bright spot) or special tariffs (for example, when Energie Baden-Wurttemberg) to 1 January 2010 or long-term offers (such as by Eprimo, a RWE subsidiary) be increased.
