The cost of electrical energy ( in Germany )

And here are some cost figures from "bild der wissenschaft" about electrical energy in Germany:

. 1.5 – 2.5 euro cent does it cost to produce 1 kilowatt-hour of electrical power using a depreciated nuclear plant
. 7 euro cent does it cost to produce 1 kilowatt-hour of electrical power harvesting wind energy
. 20 – 30 euro cent does it cost to produce 1 kilowatt-hour of electrical power using photovoltaic systems. Of course it is expected this cost to go down while the cost of using fossil fuels will go up.
. 4 – 5 euro cent is the price of 1 kilo-watt hour of electrical power ( coming from a coal or nuclear plant ) on the European electrical power exchange market
. 24 euro cent is what a German household ( including mine ) pays for 1 kilowatt-hour of electrical power.
. 12 euro cent is the price for the industry
. 7 euro cent is the price for "heavy" user ( I believe for instance the steel industry would fall into this category )
