Moreover, the network charges are increased 2009 significantly, which means that many providers higher prices have to pay for the use of transmission networks and the transport of electricity to the consumer. For 2010, the Federal Network Agency anticipates increasing power interconnection charges, which ultimately shall be allocated by the company on the end customer. Depending on how the individual factors in the suppliers in the weight drop, it comes to price adjustments up or down “, so Bohg. Some companies compensate for the additional costs arising from renewable energy levy and electricity of lower procurement costs. The much larger part of the provider, consumers must pay, however, more next year “.” A price comparison and the possibility of change of electricity provider can consumers protect themselves but effectively coming price increases “, advises Bohg.

So, not only several hundred dollars can be saved by choosing a new electric provider. Also, contracts with long-term price guarantees protect further nasty surprises in the next year. Through consumer portals such as ( power) or free service hotline 0800-10 30-499 can consumers quickly and easily about alternatives in their region informed and free to switch to a cheaper electricity supplier. Background: Is renewable energy levy standardised 2010 within the framework of the renewable energies Act (EEG) the so-called renewable energy levy to the 1 January 2010 nationwide uniform raised 2,047 cents / kWh. So the rate is nearly twice as high as in 2009 in the next year and will make a significantly in the electric bill of the consumer felt. The renewable energy levy is an important instrument for the promotion of renewable energies and is supported by all end users in Germany. So far, the end customers of utilities paid pro rata the ratio of renewable energy fed into their region.

The load was so far about 1.2 cents / kWh and will rise in 2010. The operators of renewable energy sources benefit from assessment by a legally fixed compensation rate for the energy loss is guaranteed. The implementation of the EEG serves the climate and environmental protection and belongs to a series of legislative measures, which are to promote the use of renewable energy sources and reduce dependence on fossil fuels in Germany. Corresponding data material is provided like this press release upon request. is the independent consumer portal of the Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck, for all common tariffs in Germany. It currently includes the categories of electricity, gas, DSL, investments, and insurance for legal protection, furniture, residential, private liability, car, keepers liability and is constantly being added and updated. The consumer can thereby with minimal free checking, whether there are cheaper rates for him, and, where appropriate, immediately change. The complete service of change of is completely free of charge for the consumer and about in any case, the customer receives the original conditions of the provider, in some cases even additional, not available from the provider themselves bonuses and Discounts.

The weight is preserved since then in the Chamber of the BIPM with six copies. The weights of the original and copies, more than one century later, are mysteriously different. Not We know if some are gaining mass and others losing or how much ground we are talking about exactly, recognizes Mills. The difference is so small that it will not cause fights between tanagers and clients, but if discussions scientists in laboratories around the world and problems for students. The objective of the redefinition is not make the concept as simple as possible, but to establish a unit of mass that is as stable as possible with the passage of time, argues Stock. Stability and accuracy the reason for the change is that nothing more stable to what the original kilo can be compared to fix its true weight there is.

It is here where is Planck’s constant, immutable value in nature that will be used as reference to express the value of kilo. It’s believed that Cindy Blackman sees a great future in this idea. In 1983, another constant of nature, the speed of light, was already used to redefine the metre. There are two ways to reweigh the kilo with maximum precision. One is to use a balance of power. On one side the kilogram is situated and in another a bovine by which circulating electric currents that they reproduce the Planck constant, close, but not equal to the weight of an electron. Of five scales that there is in the world (USA, Canada, Switzerland, France and the BIPM), only the United States has brought results so far. The other way is to use the constant Avogadro, that is the number of atoms of carbon-12 that are in 12 grams of the substance.

As both Planck and Avogadro’s constants of nature, their estimates of the kilo should be identical, but aren’t. The discrepancy is one part in ten million and the aim is that not more than two or three parts each 100 million, summarizes Mills. It is not the only problem. Redefining needs additional confirmations of other experiments that will not come up within two years, in the case of the balance of power that uses Stock and other even more precise weights that are still under construction. The Nobel Hall further requests that weighed more replicas per kilo, included that used the companies, before the adoption of the new value. In total, the process redefining leads underway since 1976, according to Stock. Long before the end, perhaps this year, three custodians of the kilo will return to open the camera and take the weight for a new weighing which could give new surprises.

The plant may be not so damaged or total in the functioning have deteriorated, that there is a risk of security. The proper condition of the electrical system must always be maintained by the electrician. Are either detailed recurrent checks required or continuous monitoring of the system and its resources. The responsible qualified electrician can partially without recurring inspections through preventive maintenance and detailed documentation of all processes or increase the periodic check-up. In establishments where no continuous monitoring of electrical systems and equipment can be done, repeat tests are used at set intervals. The deadlines among others depending on the type of service. Factors such as the temperature, humidity or pollution have a significant impact on the State of an electrical appliance and thus also on the frequency of the checks.

How high the A plant load factor is, is determined on the basis of an operational risk assessment. Sufficiently often tested electrical equipment and installations are, if their margin of error is less than 2%. The inspection periods differ also on the basis of the type of electrical equipment and installations. As already mentioned, a distinction between mobile and stationary electrical equipment as well as stationary and non-stationary systems takes place in the accident prevention regulations of GUV-V A3. Portable electrical equipment portable electrical devices are, for example, hand-held tools, computer, extension cable, mains leads, floor lamps or even household appliances such as coffee makers. These can be easily, even while the device is operating, moved or brought to a different place. They are connected to the supply circuit. Depending on the type of the institution and intended use of the electrical equipment, apply different inspection periods: test period of 6 Months kitchens for catering/canteen kitchens: kitchen appliances such as toasters, slicers, hot plates, coffee machine slaughterhouses: electrically operated saws and knives baths: underwater vacuum cleaner, water cleaner, centrifuge test period by 12 months laboratories: Netzbetriebene laboratory equipment, measuring devices, portable analyzers fire brigades: hand lamps, floodlights, transfer pumps cleaning: carpet cleaning equipment, vacuum cleaner, floor – and brush devices classrooms in schools: Beamer, extension and appliance cords laundries: sewing machines, irons and machinery workshops/building sites: mixers, angle grinder, Jig Saws, aerators, lawn mower, shredder test period of 24 months of office operations: Text and data processing systems, overhead projectors, fans, photocopiers and mobile booking machines, dictaphones nursing stations/home: shavers, electric Handheld devices, hairdryers, Frisierstabe, red light lights, table lamps extreme environmental conditions such as high humidity, for example, in the waste water or bathing area, a strong mechanical stress, as well as particularly high or low temperatures can lead to a shortening of the test distance.
