And now prices will be rising dramatically? Well, maybe they’re doing something wrong. Maybe it’s, I dunno, political or something? Nah.
Spanish Electricity Costs 67% Less German Power – Spanish electricity cost less than half of what German power did in the market in August as it benefited from a cap on natural gas prices, according to Spain’s association of large energy users.
The average price for electricity in Spain’s wholesale market in August was 154.89 euros ($156) per megawatt-hour, without including a cost related to the cap, the AEGE group said. That was 67% less than in the German market and 69% less than in the French market, it said in a survey released Wednesday. Spanish prices are still significantly lower when the cap is added.
