Electricity and gas prices have risen significantly in the past year. Now they are sinking again. Anyone who has received an increase should change now and not wait for the energy price brake. Just enter your zip code in our table and see your savings potential.
Energy is getting cheaper again. It’s worth comparing. The energy price brake caps electricity and gas prices retrospectively from March 1, but not for 100 percent of consumption. So it still makes a difference how high the basic price and the price for the kilowatt hour is.
Thorsten Storck, energy expert at the comparison portal Verivox, explains: “The average offers for new customers from national suppliers are now below the price limits of the energy price brakes for both gas and electricity. If this development continues, households and the state will have to pay significantly less for energy this year than feared.”
Electricity with an annual consumption of 4,000 kWh currently costs an average of 46.55 cents/kWh nationwide in the basic supply, the cheapest national offer is an average of 38.6 cents/kWh, the consumer portal Verivox has calculated for FOCUS Online (as of January 30, 2023). .

According to Verivox, gas with an annual consumption of 20,000 kWh currently costs an average of 18.3 cents/kWh nationwide for the basic supply, the cheapest national offer is an average of 11.8 cents/kWh (as of January 30, 2023).

A Verivox spokeswoman advises you to orientate yourself best on the price limits of the energy price brake for electricity and gas: “If the working price is below 40 cents/kWh for an electricity tariff and below 12 cents/kWh for a gas tariff, there is no state aid necessary. Nevertheless, the tariff should be compared with other available offers – there may be cheaper ones.”
