Electricity in the wholesale market may reach maximums of up to 105.51 euros per megawatt hour (MWh) this Wednesday , being able to even exceed the maximums reached during the Filomena storm .
However, there will also be minimum hours , in which, although the price per megawatt hour will remain high compared to other months, it will be considerably lower than the most expensive moments.
It will also be necessary to take into account the rate system for time sections that was established in Spain on June 1:
Peak section: it is the most expensive interval and runs (Monday to Friday) from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Flat section: it involves an intermediate cost and runs from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and from 10 p.m. to midnight .
Valley section: the cheapest rate and is established on weekends and holidays from 24.00 to 8.00 .
Thus, starting from that base, this Wednesday the highest price will be recorded between 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. (105.51 euros / MWh), and the minimum between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. (82.58 euros / MWh).
Apart from trying to reduce consumption during the hourly periods in which the price is higher, there are other factors that can influence the bill at the end of the month, such as taking into account which appliances are the ones that consume the most.
