Consumers will have to be vigilant this Friday, May 13. There will be times when putting on the washing machine, ironing or using the oven will be more advisable. Knowing which are the cheapest allows you to concentrate spending and save on the bill at the end of the month. The average reference for the whole day in the wholesale market will be 202.99 euros per megawatt hour, according to the operator Omie. Once again, hour by hour there will be big differences.
The wholesale market figures are reflected in the consumer's receipt. The most expensive hour will be reached between 7 and 8 am, when the price on the bill will rise to 242.74 euros per megawatt hour (MWh), based on data from Omie. The cheapest time, on the other hand, will be recorded between 5 and 6 p.m., when the megawatt hour will be paid at 164.99 euros.
This is the hourly cost of electricity for this Wednesday at the regulated rate (PVPC, toll 2.0 TD), according to Omie. These figures already include the cost of the daily and intraday wholesale market, adjustment services, financing, the cost of variable marketing, tolls and charges. It may also have other concepts such as payments for capacity, surpluses or deficits from renewable auctions and costs for interruptibility services.
