Starting from the 1st of June 2021, a new model for electricity bills and time slots for small consumers was implemented - with contracts of less than 15 kilowatts, such as shared apartments.
Transmission and distribution fees, as well as electricity system charges, are one of the regulated costs of the electricity system. They are regulated by directive 3/2020 of 15 January, which sets the methodology for their calculation, and by the CNMC Resolution of 18 March 2021, which sets their values.
About these fees:
It should be remembered that the majority of domestic consumption is regulated at low voltage (supply points with voltage less than or equal to 1 kilovolt) and for the subscribed energy less than or equal to 15 kilowatts. Keeping this in mind, the following types of fees can be considered, together with their time slots.
However, the most common fee among the domestic users is the 2.0TD.
In terms of electricity consumption, customers with a 2.0TD fee will have a hourly discrimination of 3 time slots in the billing model. This differentiates the hours of the year into 3 types:
- Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
- Between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.
- Between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.
- Between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
- Between 10 p.m. and midnight
- Between 12:00 am and 8:00 am
- All Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays (excluding both replaceable holidays and holidays without a fixed date).
Likewise, when purchasing electricity, customers who have the 2.0TD fee will have 2-period time discrimination in the billing, which differentiates the hours into 2 types:
The cheapest time slot also includes the entire day on Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays (excluding both replaceable and non-fixed public holidays).
