Electricity Bills In June Look Like They Will Be The Most Expensive Ever.
Electricity bills in June look set to soar as energy prices keep on rising.
So far this month households have been hit with the new time slot tariffs and the cost of producing electricity in Spain continues to rise. This will see consumers being hit pricewise twice in a single month. Each passing day the market price for electricity seems to rise. In fact, the only time this year that prices were in higher was on January 8 due to storm Filomena.
According to Sur in English, yesterday, Wednesday, June 16, energy prices were again expected to hit those seen in January. This means that in the space of only 24 hours the average price of electricity has risen several per cent.
Since the beginning of June households in Spain have been trying to work around the new electricity bill timeslots. This has seen many people altering their daily habits in a bid to try and save money. Many ingenious ideas have been had, but fire brigades have issued warnings on running electrical appliances such as washing machines overnight, due to the risk of fire.
According to official statistics Tuesday saw Spain come in with electricity prices nearly 28 per cent higher than prices in Germany, France or Italy.
In other Spanish electricity news, the Spanish government will ‘probably’ have to implement temporary measures in a bid to stall rising electricity prices.
Electricity prices have spiked yet again and Teresa Ribera, the vice-president and minister for Ecological Transition has admitted that the Spanish government will “probably” have to implement temporary measures in a bid to stall rising electricity prices. This move could possibly involve taxes being suspended.
Ribera has not commented on which taxes could possibly be suspended but hinted when she commented that: “We have already done it and we will probably have to do it in the immediate future” as reported 20 minutes.
