these are the most expensive and cheapest hours


The price of electricity tomorrow, Saturday, will give a break and will be paid at the lowest price since last October 29 after falling 16.3% with respect to the cost of this Friday, according to the results of the auction held this Friday in the wholesale electricity market. The data arrives on a day in which the Euribor does not seem to give any margin to those mortgaged with a credit at a variable rate since it is preparing to exceed 3% for the first time since the financial crisis. And on this crisis situation, Brussels today has thrown a jug of cold water by warning of a halt in the growth of the economy in Spain for winter and leaving growth at 1% for 2023.

A scenario that continues to worry the consumer in the midst of an inflationary wave that has been dragging on for months. In the case of electricity, for example, the final cost that will be paid tomorrow Saturday compared to that of a year ago also relieves since it will be more than 40% lowerwhen it was around 185 euros, according to provisional data from the Iberian Energy Market Operator (OMIE).

In the auction, the average price of electricity in the wholesale market -the so-called ‘pool’- will be 106.22 euros/MWh this Saturday. But to this price of the ‘pool’ you have to add the compensation to the gas companies of 1.59 euros/MWh, which has to be paid by consumers beneficiaries of the measure, consumers of the regulated rate (PVPC) or those who, despite being in the free market, have an indexed rate or have to renew their contract.
