Happy New Year from Endesa!

Firstly may I wish you all a Happy Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

If you are not already aware the cost of electricity went up again in Spain, just as we entered in 2011!

The new conditions to the ‘TUR’ tariff (Tarifa de Último Recurso) as controlled by the Ministerio de Industria, Turismo y Comercio were published in an Official State Bulletin dated 29th December 2010.

The ‘standing’ or monthly charge has not been increased, this is itemised on your bill as ‘Potenia’.

The unit charges in €/KWh have increased as shown below, this is itemised on your bill as ‘Consumo’ or ‘Fact. consumo lecturas reales’:

Unit Charge €/KWh
Standard 0,140069
Peak Rate for ‘Discriminación Horaria’ 0,168743
Cheap Rate for ‘Discriminación Horaria’ 0,060896

‘Discriminación Horaria’ is the Off-Peak tariff

This price increase will affect everyone on the TUR tariff, regardless of your contracted electricity provider. If you have recontracted within the new ‘free market’ then please contact your supplier to find out if this price increase affects you. Not all ‘free market’ providers will pass on this Government announced price increase, so it may be a Happier New Year for you!
