How much does it cost to put each appliance with the price of the light triggered?


The unprecedented rise in the wholesale price of electricity during the month of August is logically going to have a direct hit in the pockets of the consumers, even if this energy cost is only one of the components of the final bill (normally between 24% and 30%, although some experts estimate that currently round 50% due to higher wholesale prices and lower taxes). The blow, yes, will depend on the different use of household appliances that each home has made in the past month and the hours that they have been turned on.

At the beginning of June, the new electricity tariff with hourly discrimination came into force, which sets different prices according to time of the day in which the light is used with the aim of distribute consumption more way homogeneous throughout the day and thus contribute to the ecological transition. The higher prices (peak period) are from 10 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon and from 6 in the afternoon to 10 at night from Monday to Friday, excluding holidays. The intermediates (plain period) are given from 8 to 10 hours, from 2 to 6 in the afternoon and from 10 to 12 at night. The cheapest ones (valley period) are between 0 am and 8 am, in addition to all hours on Saturday, Sunday and national holidays.

The Organization of Consumers and Users (TO FATHER) has calculated that the wholesaler’s price of electricity reached a all-time high of 105.94 euros the megavarian hour (MWh) on average, with a rise of 14.6% compared to July, and after eight times daily historical records. For a middle home (4.6 kW of contracted power and 292 kWh of monthly consumption with the regulated tariff PVPC), estimates that the receipt will amount to about 78 euros, 8% more than in July and 38% more than in August 2020. Your bill for the first eight months would be 547.68 euros, 25% more than the 437.85 euros for the same period last year.

The Selectra price comparison, French group with presence in 13 countries, keeps updated a calculation on how much does it cost to put the main appliances every day depending on the evolution of hourly prices. Their estimate is for the regulated PVPC rate, which is what they have more than 10 million small consumers in Spain and that, on average, in August was 20% cheaper than the free market rates, despite the fact that most of these do not directly reflect the evolution of the wholesale market, according to the Vice President Teresa Ribera. The firm makes its calculations based on standard models (neither the most efficient nor the most obsolete) and for one hour of uninterrupted consumption.
