Important changes in the electricity rate in 2021
This year has been a difficult period both personally and economically, and for this reason countless processes and events have had to be postponed. The change in the electricity rate is one of those mechanisms paralyzed by the coronavirus. This new operation will be implemented in April 2021.
The main modification is linked to the energy periods that will become three daily and four annually. In addition, this new mechanism will allow you to choose between two different daily power periods.
This change will affect most homes and SMEs since electricity rates have a contracted power of up to 15 kilowatts (rates 2.0,2.0DH, 2.0DHS, 2.1A, 2.1DHA and 2.1DHSA) will have a toll of 2.0TD.

New energy tariff periods the new electricity tariff
New electricity rates in daily energy periods
This new mechanism will establish 3 different tariff periods per day. That is, an expensive, cheap and an intermediate period will be set that will depend on the time and day that the energy is consumed.
The expensive rate and the cheap rate have a difference in price of 50%, and the difference with respect to the intermediate rate will be 20%. Therefore, seeing the great difference in the rates, you must be very careful when turning on or using the electrical appliances. Do it in the hourly period where the electricity is cheaper, in this way you will save money and the occasional last minute scare.
The cheap rate
If you want to save at home , then you should take into account when are the days and hours when energy is cheapest. If we consume electricity during these periods, it will cost you exactly half that if we consume energy in the most expensive period.
These are the characteristics and the periods of the cheapest rate:
- Every day, from Monday to Friday, from 00:00 to 08:00.
- Throughout the weekend, regardless of schedules.
- National holidays.
The most expensive rate
This rate is the one that we will have to avoid at all costs in order not to pay more on our electricity bill. The electricity will be more expensive from Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 14:00 and from 18:00 to 22:00. These are the hours that you should reserve for rest or other things, but not to operate the consumer electronics in your home.
Finally, the intermediate rate corresponds to the following hours: from 22:00 to 00:00 and from 14:00 to 18:00, from Monday to Friday.

New electricity rates in monthly energy periods
In the change proposed by CNMC, it was proposed to separate the months of the year into 4 seasons and set a tariff, but currently this measure has been rejected in the 2.0TD tariffs, which are those that affect the majority of Spanish households. Even so, we are going to ask you what the changes are in case in the future it is debated again and it ends up being accepted.
Rate variations work as follows:
- High season. The months of January, February, July and December.
- Mid-high season. March and November.
- Mid season. The months of June, August and September.
- Low season. April, May and October.

In our environment the fluctuation of prices depending on the period or season is increasingly common. And although the new CNMC regulations have not yet come into force, as of next year, if this measure is approved, we will have to get used to fluctuating electricity prices.
This article is a small summary of this new measure that will enter next year, focused on the domestic use of electricity. The new mechanism includes another series of measures according to the tariff and the contracted energy power.
