Current Vendor Comparison

Over 800 electricity supplier with several thousand tariffs at a glance moan about the increased cost of many consumers, whether food, gasoline or electricity, everything becomes ever more expensive and it remains the people ultimately less and less money in their wallets for private consumption. The individual can do little against the price increases themselves, but he has always the option to look for alternatives. So it’s gang and give when refuelling a petrol station to choose, where gasoline costs less one or two cents and looking for the weekly shopping a cheap discounter. Consumers in the electricity supplier should try that. Free electricity supplier comparison, anyone can find the electricity cheapest for and save electricity by a change. The electricity supplier comparison is easy and is a long list of current vendors who sell their electricity on better terms. Since then only the right must be selected.

Various power suppliers have all different tariff structures for the consumer Can offer advantages. There are for example electricity providers that cheap sell their electricity in the package. This means that the consumer paid his entire annual electricity consumption in advance. This is the month broken down conveniently, carries the risk that if the electricity supplier is bankrupt, money already paid is also gone but. Also, one must know its power consumption carefully, because who consumed less, get paid not a cent and who consumes more must pay sharply. Eco electricity tariffs, which are more expensive but generally are very interesting and currently strong in the coming, however can more expensive electricity with electricity from conventional generation quite be more expensive than cheap green electricity tariffs.

Real eco-electricity is produced 100% from renewable energy from hydropower or solar energy. Offers providers that work with monthly discounts, but leave the electricity supplier comparer filter out themselves, which are more favourable than the previous electricity supplier are slightly more expensive. The best providers, are give a price guarantee the customers and have additional short contract periods. Then the consumer has the possibility, if the prices rise, to look at short notice after another electricity provider. Definitely the power provider comparison helps when changing the electricity provider and hence unnecessary costs can be saved. Stephan Artmann

Oerlikon Solar WINS Solar Industry Award

EU PVSEC 2011: highest development potential for innovation, once again certified EU PVSEC Hamburg (Germany) / Trubbach (Switzerland), September 6, 2011 for the third time in a row has Oerlikon solar the solar industry award in the category of thin film innovation won. The internationally advertised prize is awarded in annually by the British trade magazine solar PV management. “The jury Oerlikon solar’s new production line ThinFabTM as the winner of the thin film innovation award” from. The prize was awarded today on the occasion of the 26sten European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and exhibition (EU PVSEC) in Hamburg. “The awarding of the solar industry awards 2011 for our ThinFabTM fills us with pride and is after the sale of the first 120 MW-Micromorph -production line to Asia a further confirmation of the high level of acceptance and innovation our thin film silicon solar technology”, said of Helmut Frankenberger, CEO of Oerlikon solar. The excellent ThinFabTM by Oerlikon solar is a production facility for the mass production of environmentally sustainable thin film silicon solar modules. In June 2011, a customer from Asia issued the first order for a complete 120-MW Micromorph production line (ThinFabTM).

Also Oerlikon Solar won various existing customers since the launch of the ThinFabTM upgrade orders. The ThinFabTM provides the following benefits: cost: the ThinFabTM reduced to EUR 0.50/WP the “total cost of ownership” for solar modules the lowest value in the solar industry. Energy efficiency: compared to other solar manufacturing process, producing the Oerlikon thin film Silicon modules requires the least energy. Is the “energy payback time” Oerlikon technology less than a year. Practical advantages: thin film Silicon modules are advantageous under actual operating conditions, E.g. at an overcast sky or high temperatures, while significantly decreases the efficiency of crystalline solar cells. Ecological: The thin film Silicon modules contain no toxic additives such as cadmium.

Sustainability: The Oerlikon solar technology has further potential to increase efficiency and productivity, as evidenced by the ThinFabTM laboratory world record cell with a degree of efficiency by 11.9%. Oerlikon solar modules are suitable for all roof types and open-space applications. With its attractive design and their transparency they integrate in building. Awarded the solar industry awards, our investment in research and development, and our leading position in the thin-film technology for the third time are confirmed. We will offer our customers also in future production quality with a competitive price / performance ratio”, so Peter Tinner, head of sales & marketing of Oerlikon solar.
