To Consider:

There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand the world. There is no such thing as a dumb question

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.

Comparison showing the price of electricity on 1 June 2021 and the previous seven days:


The PVPC tariff replaced the previous TUR tariff on 1 April 2014. As an alternative to PVPC, consumers entitled to it can contract a fixed price with the reference marketer for one year.

The price of electricity varies every hour and is based on the cost of production of electricity, which is determined based on the hourly market price. Red Eléctrica de España, S.A. publishes the PVPC energy billing term in the evening for the following days 24 hours.

If the consumer has a remote managed meter effectively integrated into the network, an hourly billing will be applied according to their actual consumption. If the consumer does not have a remote-managed meter, or it is not effectively integrated into the network, calculated consumption profiles published each week by Red Eléctrica de España, S.A. will be applied to the actual readings.

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.

The price of electricity is constantly going up and sets new All-Time-High almost every day. This is before lots of people have bought electric cars that will require lots of electricity.

The conditions changed again on 16 September. Instead of forcing people to have a double tariff, people were from this date forced to have a single tariff.

Getting worse and worse!

Another all time high where the price of electricity is been pushed higher and higher. Two barriers have been broken the same day when the minimum price > 30 cents per kWh and the maximum price > 40 cents per kWh.
