Why is the premium product nova naturstroum more expensive?

If you have chosen the product option nova naturstroum, you as a private household pay on average between EUR 14 and 25 more per year for your power.

nova naturstroum is primarily power produced sustainably in Luxembourg on the basis of renewable energies such as hydropower, wind power, biomass and photovoltaic, and via generation plants in other EU countries that are verifiably no older than 3 years or have been renovated within the past 3 years, whereby higher costs are incurred by way of the sourcing and managing of the green power and the certification of each plant such that a supplementary contribution of EUR 0.35 cents/kWh has to be charged.

Similarly, in this context, the support provided by the ecological investment fund fonds nova naturstroum should be mentioned, which among others promotes the development of renewable energies in Luxembourg and investment in new plants.

Should you decide in favour of nova naturstroum or have already done so, why not combine your premium product with the Internet service e-connect. In this way you don’t only save up to EUR 60 per year but you also reduce the amount of paper consumed; this keeps costs down while at the same time protecting the environment.
