In my bill ca 33% is price for power, ca 40% is grid service and the rest is taxes.

Renewable tax has very high rate (per kWh) if to compare with the oil shale energy. There was time, when ren. tax had more than 10 times higher rate. Today the difference is not so high anymore, but renewable is still several times higher. The reason is that we have to pay abnormally high subsidies to producers of renewable labelled energy.

I dont usualy need to charge but nights at home. That is what EV is made for. But wait for few years. You might be surprised about progress of EV technology. Like you never dreamed of smart phones back in early 90's carrying awkward heavy mobiles, you can't imagine the range and charging times of future EVs.
I understand the concept very well, do not worry. I know, that most of EV owners have several cars, including ICE cars for longer runs. But I can not understand how keeping two cars instead of one is more environmentally friendly, than only one and universal.

Of course you can calculate, if you measure each amount of energy charged. But in this video those kilowatt hours were not published. Therefore calculating cost per kWh was bluff.
Zelenec wrote:Hmm, why would anybody buy Volume package, if he doesn't need it?
Maybe this package is for EV taxis? Regular EV owner should not usually need to use public fast chargers. This journalist took one time test trip to Tartu, for such occasional charging is Flexible package with the rate 5€ per charging, what I was talking about.

Our night time peaks happen to be on frosty winter nights when households and offices use electric heating for additional warmth. If at the same time there were 300 000 EV-s charging, then the consumption exceeds every present peak.
