Berlin (dpa) - The operators of the large electricity grids announce in the morning the amount of the surcharge for the promotion of green electricity in Germany. As the dpa has learned from well-informed circles, the EEG surcharge in the coming year should be 6.756 cents per kilowatt hour - currently it is 6.405 cents. The levy accounts for about a quarter of the electricity price and finances the fixed remuneration that green electricity producers have received to feed their electricity so far regardless of the market price.
