webinar sobre la factura de la luz

Univergy Solar broadcasted an online webinar on the new tariff system Did you miss it?

Last Wednesday, June 30, Univergy Solar broadcast an online webinar on the new electricity bill. The meeting could be viewed both on Youtube and Instagram and was led by Francisco Conesa, director of the Self-consumption Division.

The meeting began with a brief introduction on the commotion caused by the change in electricity tariffs and the many doubts that the new electricity bill had generated among consumers, and was developed covering all topics, including solar self-consumption. 

The contents of the webinar were mainly related to the changes in the new electricity tariffs and how they were going to affect the consumer; real examples of the impact, tools and tricks to make a self-diagnosis and take advantage of the electrical resources in the best way; and, finally, how to take advantage of the alternative of photovoltaic self-consumption.

So, what is changing with the new tariff? As we explained, the changes produced by the publication of both Circular 3/2020, of the National Commission for Markets and Competition (CNMC), and Royal Decree 148/2021, are several. These regulations imply changes in the toll system, a reduction in the number of existing tariffs, a greater number of time slots and tariffs according to the time of consumption, etc.

One of the most general doubts of the attendees was the cost of the system and how to understand it, so we explained that the bill is composed, firstly, by the power term -a fixed cost formed by tolls and regulated charges-, by the energy or variable term, which is where the margin of the marketer is included, and finally, other added expenses such as the meter rent, the special electricity tax or VAT.

Therefore, we saw that with the new system we went from 12 tariffs to only 6, multi-periods were implemented, both in energy and power, the cost was reduced at nights, weekends and holidays and the possibility of making two changes of contracted power per year was introduced.

Comparing the old tariffs with the new electricity bill, we discovered that the changes in the amount will depend to a great extent on the user and the type of electricity use, which could increase the price of the bill in some cases, or reduce it in others.

Finally, we were talking about photovoltaic solar self-consumption, a very interesting alternative to save on electricity for several reasons; mainly because it does not generate costs to the energy term, but also because when installed, the user consumes and generates at the same time, allowing the energy that is not used instantly can be discharged to the network, so that it is economically compensated in your bill at the end of the month.

The conclusion we reach is that solar self-consumption is one of the most attractive alternatives. This is proven by the fact that it is the most installed electricity generation technology in the world, that it generates almost half of the power of the world’s new power plants and that it produces the most affordable KWP hour at present.
