EnBW is therewith considering the procurement costs which have clearly increased in this long period as well as the reduction of the network access charges.
Through the current long-term price guarantee the customers have a high price reliability and consequently planning security. Solely the value added tax increase by three percent beginning on the 1 January 2007 which was decided on by the policy makers will be passed on by EnBW to all customers.
