From 50 to 930 euros – Salzburg student hit energy hammer in Vienna

After reading a letter (the Salzburg “Krone” has it) from Wien Energie at the end of November, less than three months after moving in, the world looked different. The 18-year-old thought she had been hit by the energy hammer: if the energy provider for electricity and gas only demanded 50 euros a month, he now demanded 930. 825.60 euros for natural gas, 104.40 euros for electricity. This corresponds to almost twenty times the original price. “Start full of energy”: The Wien-Energie slogan printed on the stationery sounded like sheer mockery to the young woman from Salzburg.
