The price of electricity in the regulated rate increases to 0.27547 euros per kilowatt hour this Monday. The cheapest sections will be at dawn and between 2 and 6 p.m. On the other hand, the most expensive ones will go from 5 to 2 pm and from 6 to 10 pm.
The average price of electricity in the wholesale market rose again this Monday compared to this Sunday, but it will remain below the level of 200 euros/MWh.
Specifically, the average price of the 'pool' for this May 23 will be 194.16 euros/MWh, 13.84% more expensive than this Sunday, according to data published by the Iberian Energy Market Operator (OMIE) and collected by Europa Press.
Compared to a year ago, the average price of electricity for this Monday is 182.74% more expensive than the 68.67 euros/MWh of May 23, 2021.
The prices of the 'pool' have a direct impact on the regulated rate -the so-called PVPC-, to which almost 11 million households in the country are covered, and serve as a reference for the other 17 million who have contracted their supply in the free market .
