Due to Circular 3/2020, which establishes the methodology for the calculation of electricity transportation and distribution tolls, a series of changes are established that will have an impact on our electricity bills.
The changes in the pricing will take effect on January 25, 2020, however they set a period of transmission until November 1, 2020.
All 2.X rates with contracted power equal to or less than 10 kW, currently have 1 or two periods in energy (depending on whether it is a rate with or without time discrimination) and only one in power.
However, according to Circular 3/2020, these rates are called 2.0TD. The main changes to this rate are:
- - They pass to 3 periods of energy in the new 2.0TD rate.
- - They pass to 2 periods of power in the new 2.0TD rate.
- - The current time discrimination disappears. All rates will have three different periods in the energy term.
Due to this modification in the tariffs, all supplies that have contracted tariffs with a power equal to or less than 10 kW will pass to the new 2.0TD tariff.
The consumer will have the right to adapt the contracted powers per time period defined in the Circular in a totally free process, regardless of whether he had made a change of power in the previous 12 months.
The Circular introduces the three periods in the Energy Term in the Iberian Peninsula, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands, according to the day of the week and the time of day. Therefore, the schedules that correspond to each day and each hour of the week are:
Weekends and Holidays
Also, divide the year into four seasons:
Periodification of power
As a novelty, the Circular introduces the possibility of the consumer to choose two powers throughout the day based on the habits and consumption of each consumer.
You can choose a power for the Valley hours (P3) and another for the Peak hours (P1) and thus schedule the operation of your most consumed appliances when the contracted power is lower.
Note that energy during weekends and holidays will keep the price of light lower during all hours of the day.
If you want to see a saving on your electricity bill you should consume in the hours and days when electricity is cheaper.
Therefore, we give you the keys to the cheapest sections:
- - Any day of the week from 24:00 in the morning to 08:00 in the morning.
- - The weekend at any time.
- - Fixed national holidays.
This is a saving of up to 50%, so it is recommended that you program your appliances taking into account these schedules.
What schedules should you avoid?
The most expensive light sections are from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on weekdays.
In Lumisa we will inform you properly of all the changes and options at your fingertips once the effective adaptation to these new light rates is made.
