The average price of electricity for regulated rate customers linked to the wholesale market in Spain will rise 24.9 per cent on Sunday, November 13, compared to this Saturday 12. Specifically, it will stand at €134.67/MWh.

According to provisional data from the operator of the Iberian Energy Market (OMIE), in the auction, the average price of electricity in the wholesale market – the so-called ‘pool’ – will be €131.69/MWh tomorrow.

Sunday’s maximum price will be registered between 7pm and 8pm, at €170.23/MWh, while the minimum for the day, of €101.56(MWh, will be between 3pm and 4pm.

Added to this pool price is the compensation to the gas companies of €2.98/MWh.
