Electricity – expensive fuel of society

Electricity is an integral part of modern life and of immeasurable importance to the world economy. People use electricity for lighting, heating and cooling as well as for the operation of computers, machines and public transport systems. More and more often, electric cars are preferred to gasoline or diesel equivalents. In addition, thanks to the ever-increasing digitization of the industry, the need for electricity will definitely not diminish.
In conjunction with the increasing demand for electricity, the price of electricity is also rising accordingly. The average electricity price for private households in Germany has increased since the turn of the millennium from 13.94 to 29.42 cents per kilowatt hour in 2018. This corresponds to an increase of 6% per year and a total increase of 111%. Taxes, duties and taxes have tripled since 2000 [from 5.19 to 15.8 cents]. In total, they now account for more than half of the electricity price [54.3%]. 24.7% of the costs arise due to network charges. The remaining 21% go to the energy companies.


Not only taxes are rising, but also the basic suppliers are increasing their prices. In 2018, around 50 energy utilities have already increased electricity prices by an average of 3.1%. Affected are areas with around 1.8 million households. This is a continuing trend, further price adjustments are expected in the medium and long term. Rising electricity prices are becoming the “industry standard”. Private households are suffering from this trend.

Photovoltaic – Big costs, small profit

A way out for many households: generate electricity yourself! With a photovoltaic system on the roof consumers are freed from the rising electricity costs through self-sufficient supply by solar energy. Problem solved? Not at all! The classic photovoltaic system has its problems. First and foremost, there is the huge amount of electricity that is needed in the production of the solar systems. In addition, the components of cadmium, lead and fluoropolymers installed in the photovoltaic modules are virtually non-recyclable and environmentally harmful. The biggest downside, however, is the high entry price. The initial purchase of the typical photovoltaic system with energy storage costs costs 9,000€ on average. Adding to that, the operation of the system then costs about 10 cents per kilowatt hour. This is absolutely not affordable for all citizens!

Solarmodul poligy

The solution: our bipolymers!

The cheap, effective alternative to the photovoltaic systems is only offered by poligy. Thanks to our innovative, patented material, the bipolymer, we can save costs for the customer twice. On the one hand, the solar modules developed by us, which produce electricity and heat energy with the bipolymer in their core with the heat of the sun, are priced lower than a photovoltaic system with energy storage. This is due to the low production costs associated with the energy-efficient production of the bipolymer. On the other hand, our modules can generate electricity at a cheaper price per kilowatt-hour in the future.
Thanks to these huge advantages of the products with bipolymers, poligy will revolutionize the energy market. After all, why not rely on our solar modules if they deliver heat and electricity at significantly lower costs than conventional photovoltaic systems?
