Comparison showing the price of electricity on 1 June 2021...
The PVPC tariff (“Precio Voluntario para el Pequeño Consumidor”) changed drastically on 1 June 2021, making electricity slightly cheaper during the nights, but making it much more expensive during peak hours during day-time.
The peak hours on the Spanish mainland are roughly between 8.30 am - 2.00 pm and 5.00 pm - 10.00 pm on 1 June 2021. The price has increased with approx. 60% during these hours in comparison with the previous day, making it much more expensive to run air-conditions and other electrical appliances.
It's a dreadful government that forces people to have a double tariff, regardless if it suits them or not. Earlier people had the choice to choose between double and single tariff.
Socialism, and other totalitarian ideologies, have always been about reducing peoples choices and force their ideas up on the people. These politicians regard themselves as more clever then the people.
