However, the mechanism, despite its publication as a Royal Decree-Law, is pending a formal decision by Brussels and for its application to be initiated by an ecumenical transition order.
The government limits in its calculations 15.3% reduction for the average power consumer Accepted the PVPC regulated rate during 12 months of application of the approved cap on the generation of electricity from natural gas, as stated in the impact report accompanying the decree legislation and accessed by Europa Press.
For the industrial consumer, who is fully exposed to the spot price, the government estimates that the bill will reduce by between 18% and 20%, between 15% and 17% in the first month of the mechanism, and by 13%. There will be an oscillation between 15%. in the latter.
