A map compiled by RTS shows prices for 2023 by municipality.
According to the Federal Electricity Commission (ElCom), differences in municipal prices are explained by differences in local topography, differences in network efficiency, consumption patterns, and power sources. Romande Energie of Vaud, for example, has to buy 60% of his electricity on the market, providing far more electricity than he produces. This means that rising market prices, mainly due to rising fossil fuel prices, will be felt more acutely by customers.
