Depressing, isn’t it?
The Spanish energy market is fixed by an auction four times a year between those who sell us the electric, and those who generate it. Surprisingly, it seems that the wholesale market increases just before these auctions, meaning the wholesale cost is always highest just before we have to buy the stuff. Strangely enough, of course, most of Spain’s energy delivery companies and Spain’s energy generating companies all belong to the same groups… Ah hem. The government has quietly opened an investigation to keep the EU happy.
If you have any idea on how to calculate the per unit cost of your electric bill, we’d be grateful for your help.
