During the 1990s the production and supply of electric power in Germany ceased to be a monopoly. Following deregulation and consumer activity, there are many suppliers offering electric power at somewhat more competitive prices. Germany still has some of the highest energy prices in Europe.

In Germany, the cost of electricity is not normally included in the additional charges (Nebenkosten) when renting a house or flat, so a decision needs to be made concerning power suppliers.

Stadtwerke Essen is the local utilities company of choice in Essen.Originating from 1867, many of their electricity tariffs encourage the use of power from renewable sources. Good for the environment. Stadtwerke Bochum, DSW21 in Dortmund and Stadtwerke Duisburg amongst others are also big players.
