PlayStation 5 at E as simple: Is the offer worth it?
Unfortunately, we cannot calculate exactly whether it is worth switching to “E for you” because various factors such as the federal state, household size and your own electricity consumption play an important role in the electricity supply. In a sample calculation for a three-person household in Berlin, we got a slightly higher price per kWh (34.66 cents) with a comparatively mediocre basic fee (25.60 euros per month). Our tip: Take a look at your current annual electricity bill and compare whether switching providers is worth the total costs for the next 24 months if you deduct the costs for the PS5.
The biggest advantage here is, of course, that you Sony PlayStation 5 Disc Edition (RRP EUR 499), a second controller (RRP EUR 69.99) and 24 months of PlayStation Plus (RRP EUR 119.98) for a one-off payment of EUR 349. If you were planning to change your electricity provider anyway, the offer is definitely worth it.
