Volkswagen Group: Elli offers 100% CO2-free energy in Germany
The new Volkswagen Group subsidiary Elli is taking a further consistent step towards sustainability offering an eco-power tariff that is available throughout Germany.
The first product from Elli is called “Volkswagen Naturstrom”, comes from 100-percent renewable sources and is intended for private households and small businesses.
The new tariff is expressly intended not only for current customers of Volkswagen Group brands or owners of electric vehicles.
Elli’s goal is the digital networking of energy and mobility. This is based on the conviction that e-mobility can only be really sustainable if vehicles are powered by electricity generated on a CO2-free basis.
In Germany the standing and commodity charges of all electricity suppliers are subject to regional differences and depend on a number of factors including the utilization charges of grid operators.
A sample calculation for central Berlin indicates that a typical household of three persons with an annual consumption of 3,500 kilowatt-hours could save about €280 compared with the standard tariff of the local general supplier over the contract term of 24 months.
The special feature of the Elli tariff calculator is that it can include the consumption of an electric car in addition to a household, if the customer so wishes.
