Tariffs for individuals

Monthly billing for electricity includes the amount of energy consumed (the number of kWh), the power (the quantity of power that has been contracted), plus the rent or maintenance of measurement devices and VAT.

The term “Te” used in the table is the price at which each kWh consumed is invoiced. The term “Tp” used in the table is the amount that is invoiced monthly for each kW of contracted power.

The energy term (Te) used in the invoicing for the amount of kWh consumed varies according to which of the four established sections the average daily consumption of the billing period is located (section 1: up to 3.33 kWh / day, section 2: from 3, 34 up to 20.00 kWh / day, section 3: from 20.01 up to 33.33 kWh / day, section 4: more than 33.33 kWh / day).

Special terms

Minimum: there is a minimum monthly consumption, which is set 20 times higher than the contracted power. If the monthly consumption in kWh is lower than this minimum, the actual consumption is charged to the energy price of the relevant section, and the difference between the actual consumption and the specified minimum is set at the price of the energy period of the minimum of the same section (Tem 1 or Tem 2).

Social tariff: this is the rate applied to domestic supplies made by private individuals who meet these conditions and who request it.

Heating for “accumulation”: if a user has storage devices ( a device is considered as an accumulation device when the charge of its storage capacity is made exclusively at night), it can reduce the capacity of the total volume of its consumption at the start of the contractual term. To do this, it is necessary to specify in detail the maximum simultaneous device power (PMA) and the power that corresponds to the normal operation of the installation without accumulation devices in the Bulletin of Electrical Installation.

Tariffs for legal entities

Monthly billing for electricity includes the amount of energy consumed (the number of kWh), the power (the quantity of power that has been contracted), plus the rent or maintenance of measurement devices and VAT.

The term “Te” used in the table is the price at which each kWh consumed is invoiced. The term “Tp” used in the table is the amount that is invoiced monthly for each kW of contracted power.

Special terms

Minimum: there is a minimum monthly consumption, which is set 30 times higher than the contracted power. If the monthly consumption in kWh is lower than this minimum, the actual consumption is charged at the price of the corresponding energy term, and the difference between the actual consumption and the minimum mentioned is invoiced at the price of the minimum energy term (Temín”).

Heating for “accumulation”: if a user has storage devices ( a device is considered as an accumulation device when the charge of its storage capacity is made exclusively at night), it can reduce the capacity of the total volume of its consumption at the start of the contractual term. To do this, it is necessary to specify in detail the maximum simultaneous device power (PMA) and the power that corresponds to the normal operation of the installation without accumulation devices in the Bulletin of Electrical Installation.

Monthly billing for electricity includes the amount of energy consumed (the number of kWh), the power (the quantity of power that has been contracted), plus the rent or maintenance of measurement devices and VAT.

The term “Te” used in the table is the price at which each kWh consumed is invoiced. The term “Tp” used in the table is the amount that is invoiced monthly for each kW of contracted power.

Special conditions
* Re-active power (TER): external power consumption + own generation (kVArh). If during the payment period the amount of reactive energy consumed from 8 to 23 hours per day is more than 40% of active energy at the same time, the surplus is charged according to the “re-active energy” tariffs (equivalent to a power of 0.93).
