Before the Powerchain, electricity was mostly produced at large facilities, and is further distributed to a wide variety of consumers: from large industries to small households. In fact, there are also grid operators between the producer and the consumer. Hence we all face the main problems shortening the final consumer’s budget.
A fixed tariff comprising:
- Producer’s profit;
- Various intermediaries’ profit;
- Grid management costs (i.e. O&M);
- Amortization costs for large corporations.
No consumer vote rights
The consumer can not influence the electricity grid scheme, and is forced to rely entirely on corporations owning production capacities and infrastructure.
Local grid monopolization
The consumer cannot choose manufacturers and suppliers, so must have only the stated ones.
External dangers common
to any centralized network
(The center falls - consumers suffer)
Long distance shipments bring huge losses of electricity.
Peak and uneven generation
from alternative sources
(No sunlight, no wind = no electricity)
