After the June changes, made by the government, it is normal that there is some confusion. Now, depending on your hours of electricity consumption, you have different prices during the day, which will affect what you pay on your bill. Therefore, please look at the information below which explains in more detail.
What are the new tariff times?
The following must be taken into account, as those on a Tariff 2.0 (properties with a power of up to 15kW) are divided into 3 periods where the price varies depending on the hours of the day you are consuming electricity, these periods are: peak, off peak and super off peak.
Peak Period (P1)
This is the period where the price for consumption is the most expensive.
This period is Monday to Friday morning from 10:00 to 14:00 and in the afternoon from 18:00 to 22:00.
Off Peak Period (P2)
This is the period where the electricity rate has a moderate price per kWh.
This period is Monday to Friday morning from 08:00 to 10:00 and in the afternoon from 14:00 to 18:00 and at night from 22:00 to 00:00.
Super Off Peak Period (P3)
This is the period where the consumption is at its cheapest.
This period is Monday to Friday with the hours of 00:00 to 08:00 and Saturdays, Sundays and National Holidays during the whole day.
¿A quiénes le afectan este horario?
This timetable does not affect all consumers equally, this will depend on the type of tariff each consumer has. Specifically, this timetable will affect consumers with a Tariff 2.0, i.e., individualswith a power of up to 15kW. In addition, this timetable will also affect those living on the Spanish mainland and in the Balearic Islands, as well as those living in the Canary Islands.
And how are the schedules for those on 3.0 & 6.0 tariff?
These have a schedule that depends on the season and are divided into 6 periods in which the price will vary according to the hours of the day you are consuming electricity and each area is different. These seasonscan be classified into 4: High, Medium High, Medium and Low Season.
Depending on the season we are in, the season we are in will impact which periods are cheaper.
Remember, each area is different so, the Peninsula, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands will not have the same schedule, they have small differences as we will see below.
