Headline: Coupled Energy Prices
Why the oil loses its power for a long time there is the common practice in the German energy suppliers, that gas prices are closely linked to oil prices. This is to protect the company from short-term price jumps and ensure long-term investments. However, many customers complain about the lack of transparency of the gas prices. A news judgment of the Bundesgerichtshof (BGH) tells you now, whether coupled energy prices are legitimate. The real estate site myimmo.de reports on the changes. In a landmark decision, the BGH decided that customers with automatic pairing of the energy prices are unreasonably disadvantaged. The reason: The utilities can make extra profits which extend beyond passing rising costs.
