Electricity Bill

Regulated market: operates under rules established by the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge. Only consumers with contracted power up to 10 kW are eligible. Prices are regulated, the PVPC (voluntary price for small consumers).

It can only be contracted with one of the 8 Reference Marketers existing in Spain.

See the List of Reference Retailers with information on the Bono Social.

Free market: the conditions of the contract are agreed individually between the consumer and the electricity trading company. The price is liberalised.

Only if you are on the regulated market will you be able to access the Bono Social.

These are the regulated component of the tariff. Tolls are the costs of the transmission and distribution networks, while charges are associated with the promotion of renewables, extra-peninsular costs and annuities to pay the tariff deficit.

Adjusting the contracted power.

The user will be able to contract two different powers, one for peak and flat hours, and another for off-peak hours, and benefit from the savings that come from eliminating excessive powers that are not needed at certain times. However, if the user does not explicitly request it, the same power currently contracted will continue to be applied at peak/off-peak and off-peak times.

Taking into account the hourly consumption brackets.

Consumers will pay a different price depending on the hours of consumption. The hourly discrimination will be regulated with the following three time slots, which will mark the hours with the most expensive and cheapest electricity consumption prices. This only affects the regulated component of the energy term of the 2.0 TD toll.

The peak period, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., will be the most expensive. The flat period, with an average fare, will have three periods: from 8am to 10am, from 2pm to 6pm and from 10pm to midnight. The off-peak period for night-time hours, from 0 to 8 am. In addition, on weekends and national holidays, all hours will be off-peak. Consumers will have to modify their habits and patterns to allow them to shift consumption to off-peak hours.

Electric Mobility

An electric vehicle is defined as a vehicle powered wholly or partly by an electric motor that uses the chemical energy stored in batteries that can be recharged by an external source of electrical energy. The legislation considers as electric vehicles only those vehicles that need a charging point to supply these batteries.

Pure/battery electric vehicle.

Vehicle powered entirely by an electric motor powered by batteries that are recharged through a mains socket connected to the electricity grid.

Plug-in hybrid vehicle.

Plug-in electric vehicle incorporates a small combustion engine that drives a generator to recharge the batteries. The propulsion is exclusively electric, but the batteries are recharged thanks to the auxiliary combustion system.

Hybrid vehicle.

A vehicle that combines electric propulsion from energy stored in batteries and obtained from the grid with conventional propulsion. The electric range is greater than in conventional hybrids (non-plug-in hybrids), which significantly reduces the overall level of emissions compared to them.

It is estimated that the battery of an electric car should last at least eight years or 150,000 km, i.e. around 3,000 charge cycles.

It is advisable to start a recharging operation when the vehicle is not fully discharged, not only is it not harmful to the battery, but it is also more appropriate.

Self-consumption is the consumption by one or several consumers of electricity from production facilities close to the consumption facilities and associated with them.

The different modalities of self-consumption are set out in the Article 9 of Law 24/2013 of 26 December 2013The new regulations are included again in the Article 4 of Royal Decree 244/2019 of 5 April 2019. At present, the following modalities are distinguished:

Supply modalities with self-consumption without surpluses

When the physical devices installed prevent any surplus energy from being injected into the transmission or distribution grid. In this case, there shall be only one type of subject as provided for in the Article 6 of Law 24/2013 of 26 December 2013who will be the consumer.

Self-consumption supply mode with surpluses

When the generation facilities can, in addition to supplying energy for self-consumption, inject energy into the transmission and distribution networks. In these cases, there will be two types of subjects of those provided for in the Article 6 of Law 24/2013 of 26 December 2013the consumer and the producer.

Yes. Collective self-consumption has been regulated, in such a way that several consumers can be associated to the same generation plant, which will promote self-consumption in homeowners' communities. This possibility has been facilitated by production facilities close to and associated with consumption facilities.

In particular, the Article 4(3) of Royal Decree 244/2019 of 5 April 2019provides that:

"3. In addition to the aforementioned types of self-consumption, self-consumption may be classified as individual or collective depending on whether it is one or several consumers who are associated with the generation facilities. In the case of collective self-consumption, all participating consumers who are associated to the same generation facility must belong to the same self-consumption modality and must communicate individually to the distribution company as the person in charge of reading, directly or through the marketing company, the same agreement signed by all the participants that includes the distribution criteria, by virtue of what is set out in Annex I."

Energy communities are built on the concept of local energy self-consumption. That is, the production of energy for own use, individually or collectively, and in the same place where it is generated. It has a recognised legal and juridical status and its importance in accelerating the transition to a CO2-free energy system is pointed out.

As stated in the Spanish National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan (PNIEC) 2021-2030, pending final approval, the definition of energy community encompasses two concepts:

Renewable energy community.

Focused on any community energy project involving the use of renewable sources such as wind or photovoltaic.

Citizen energy community.

It is designed to cover any project in the electricity sector for its members, including distribution, supply, consumption, aggregation, storage and provision of energy services (such as building renovation) or charging services for electric vehicles.
