310 zlotys. The annual electricity bill for a typical household in 2022 will increase compared to the bill for the current year (2021).

We have been waiting for a long time for Friday, December 17, 2021, in which we expected the decisions of the President of the Energy Regulatory Office approving tariffs for the four largest energy sellers (PGE, Tauron, Energa, Enea) and tariffs of distribution companies. Knowing at what prices entrepreneurs contracted energy for 2022 in recent months (price increase two or even three times y / y), it was known that households would also suffer significant increases.

The increase in the above-mentioned an annual bill of PLN 310 (gross amount) applies to a household recipient from the most popular G11 tariff group. This is a 24% increase over the 2021 bill.

Due to the fact that the energy bill consists of two parts, the first - sales (it tells us how much we pay for the goods - the energy we use at home) and the second - distribution (this tells us how much it costs to deliver this product - energy to our homes), it is worth knowing the scale of growth in these two areas:
- 37% - so much more a G11 recipient will pay for the energy they use (PLN 251 per year),
- 9% - it will cost so much more to deliver this energy (PLN 59 per year).

Let us bear in mind that the above-mentioned values ​​are average values ​​at the level of all tariffs approved by the President of the ERO, which means that the accounts of consumers from different parts of the country may slightly differ from each other. For example, we provide gross electricity prices for customers from the G11 tariff group, for which energy sellers are:
- PGE Obrót SA: PLN 509.22 / MWh
- Tauron Sprzedaż Sp. z o.o .: 510.08 PLN / MWh
- Energa-Obrót SA: PLN 508.11 / MWh
- ENEA SA: PLN 509.47 / MWh

Nobody expected such a “hot” December on the European energy exchanges – electricity prices are breaking new records.

cPPA contracts – an opportunity for cheap energy from renewable energy sources

The cPPA (Corporate Power Purchase Agreements) contracts entered the Polish power industry's salons just a few years ago. The first ones willing to take advantage of the contracts were market leaders who created the trend of co-responsibility for the environment, as well as entrepreneurs for whom it was important to guarantee a fixed purchase price for at least a few consecutive years. These contracts are usually concluded for a period of 5-10 years, which results from the requirements set by RES producers (by concluding such contracts, RES producers allow financing of the sources being built, mainly photovoltaic and wind farms).

Energy prices for 2023. About the risk of purchasing energy at SPOT market prices

How is it with these energy prices? Buy energy for 2023 now or wait until autumn to buy energy with the hope of lowering prices? Make a purchase at a predetermined price or choose a pricing mechanism based on stock indices? Should you decide to buy energy based on long-term cPPA contracts or decide to invest in your own energy generation sources?

The answer to all questions is: it depends. On a macro scale, it depends on geopolitics. Prices of coal, gas, emission allowances. The situation on European markets and the increasing uncertainty of raw material supplies. EU or local political decisions accelerating or inhibiting the development of the energy sector. On a micro scale, it depends on the situation of a specific company. Its business profile, current and expected financial situation, market awareness as well as the risk appetite of its management.

Purchase of energy from renewable sources. How to protect the company against increases?

The purchase of energy from renewable sources has gained in importance over the last year, because the so far leading ecological emphasis has been supported by a very strong partner - the financial aspect. Over the last year, the purchase of "green" energy (often based on long-term cPPA contracts) has become strongly competitive with the purchase of energy from the power exchange, the prices of which have experienced a threefold increase y / y (one of the main culprits of the current increases is the situation on the coal market). The energy prices offered to companies in the last days for 2023 exceeded the level of PLN 1,250-1400 / MWh (rates vary depending on the characteristics of the recipients; let us remind you that in 2021 entrepreneurs were buying energy on average at PLN 300-400 / MWh).
