Power for Kiez Burn 2022
Power to the people
⚡ Power for Kiez Burn 2022 ⚡
Hey, my name is Sven and I´m leading the mighty power rangers to bring electricity to Kiez Burn this year.
Unfortunately, this year we will have to pay more for electricity, otherwise I do not expect any major changes from last year. Even though recent construction work the campground has been expanded and we also expect more guests.
Power Kiez Burn 2021
- 3 big generators for the event (area is quite large)
- 2 small generators for Build & Strike (1 mobile and 1 for volunteers kitchen)
- All generators and cables were transported by the provider, except the last small generator, which was brought back by us
- The cost for power were covered about half by the camps and half by the organization
- Prize for Kieze was 70€ per Kilowatt
- Power Bill was around 10000€ and looked like this:
o 3 big generators: 1650€
o Fuel tanks: 936€
o Transport of big generators / fuel and connecting of fuel tanks: 1332€
o Cables / bridges / power distributor: 4155,37€ * also cables for lights are included
o Fuel (1200 liter): 936€
o 2 small generators: 200€
o Transport of cables / small generators: 800€
*All these numbers came from the last year offer of our contributor, maybe the final price was a little bit different
I already have offers of our power provider for this year. I´m just waiting for the offers for synthetic fuel and a CO2 certificate to balance our co2 emissions. Maybe we want to use, maybe not. Depends on the price and how good is it.
Solar Power was a topic for us. But the costs to go 100% solar power would be triples and we would need much place for the solar modules.
Then there was a chance to replace one big generator with a battery and a smaller solar power plant. But the battery was quite small, which could lead to a problem at night and on our date the system was also already booked out.
Another option was to install three batteries and use the generators to recharge them. So we would need much less fuel because the generators were not running idle. Unfortunately, this way would cost us nearly 9000€ more then to go with the generators solo. Because of the rent/transport of the batteries.
Power proposal 2022
- Also 3 generators for Kiez Burn power, maybe some more cables
- Also 2 small generators for build / volunteer kitchen
Maybe we can transport the small generators and cables to save the costs
Power costs 2022
Right now, I calculate the costs about 12000€
The big generators are more expensive (2250€), transport (1520€ + 1220€), but mostly the fuel (1800€)
The fuel price depends of the daily market prices and is changing quite much right now.
Price of Kieze
I am aiming for 90€ per Kilowatt.
The price the price may change if the number of Kieze change (more Kieze the price might drop) or the price of the fuel may change significantly. Or the transport costs will be reduced significantly.
The power budget of the Kiez Burn orga is fixed and my reference.

I must say I have copied here and there from last year. In some way Sven Galaxy was my mentor there ;P
