The Green Minister Robert Habeck and Steffi Lemke want to protect consumers with laws in front of the low-range gaming. The central problem is the protection of the basic suppliers. A comment.
The anger is understandable. What the Stromdiscounter Stromio has done before Christmas is an impudence: the deliveries set, tens of thousands of customers dilated and then not even gone into the bankruptcy. The annoyance was great, the Federal Network Agency now examines whether Stromio has not sold its quotas simply in wholesale instead of serving his customers. It is also good that the green Ministers - Economic and Climate Minister Robert Habeck and Environmental Protection Minister Steffi Lemke - to target the low-cost power providers. And yet they aim just in addition.

"In good faith chopped"
you want to check "regulatory steps" to put the low-cost power providers on the body, Lemke of the German Press Agency said: "We will not allow it to be unloaded in the consumers when budgetary electricity providers in The bankruptcy go, or terminate mass contracts. "And Dabeck said the" Handelsblatt ", it must be prevented that" the people who want to save 50 or 100 euros, at the end, the impaired ones are impossible ". And "that people in the good faith have to get a favorable offer, now find in more expensive basic care tariff, can not just stay without any consequences."
cheaper is also called Riskant
The argument Lemkes and Dabecks is in the core: the Liberalization of the electricity market has gone too far. A little far is right. Just not in the meaning, as the two argue. For consumers who "blamed", know in principle, that is allowed to underpass what they get involved when they buy energy particularly favorably. You know that you are taking special risks if you are going through providers, gambling to buy electricity at short notice, rather than relying on longer-term, potential contractual contracts. That's why it's cheap.
Real Estate: Despite the crisis, the capacity of households to buy increased
the capacity of households to buy real estate has increased further between 2019 and 2021. Published on Thursday, January 20, the Observatory Credit Housing / CSA - LPI explains this development by improving credit conditions. It has mitigated the consequences of the tightening of access to credit and rising housing prices. In addition, market transformation related to the recovery of personal contribution rates required has, in many cases, facilitated the increase in the capacity to buy.
safe, more transparency never harms. And it is important that consumers complain about damages that cheap providers do not come out cheap from this number. But one should not sell consumers for too stupid. Basically, it is clear that cheaper often means too riskers. And that also means: have to accept inconvenience if it goes wrong.
Basic suppliers must be based on risks that they have not received
The other way is the question of which consequences the gambling of cheap providers has for the basic suppliers, stutty works. Because they have to pay non-suffered for the building of the cheap providers. From today to tomorrow you can send thousands of new customers that you need to supply, possibly with electricity that needs to be purchased at the spot markets short-term. The basic suppliers must stand for risks they have never received. Here is the market in deficit. Clear if basic suppliers with excessive replacement supply tariffs want to make a quick euro, that's a problem. But customers can change again. It is crucial, however, is how cheap electricity providers can be committed to a hedging system that relieves basic suppliers when the gamblers are spreading. That's a question of fairness. There is the real legal gap.
