SPANISH households pay some of the highest electricity bills of any in the EU, according to data from the bloc.

The Eurostat statistics agency found the average Spanish family pays almost 2.2 cents per kilowatt-hour, more than double that of Germany, France, Italy and Portugal.

The figures showed those who used the least electricity found themselves paying more per kilowatt-hour on average because of costs in bills which remain the same regardless of usage.

  1. And the bills appear to rise every month with no intervention by the government or an ombudsman. The problem is that Iberdrola have almost a complete monopoly over energy supply. You only have to look at British TV with their numerous ‘switch energy suppliers’ adverts to get the best deal to realise that in Spain that option is not really available. It’s more or less Iberdrola and nobody else. It’s time the energy minister (if there is one) did something about it.

  2. I think you will find that the price is approximately 20 eurocents per kW/hour IVA included, perhaps the author should republish the article with a more accurate price as 2,2 eurocents per kW/hour is seriously cheap.

  3. Its 22cents a KWh not 2.2Cents some people pay 25cents and you also have the standing charge and VAT IVA on top.

    So the real cost of 1 KWh is 26-27 cents. That is a mMassive cost get solar panels…!!!

  4. For the last 10 years we’ve been saying that – but the prices keep rising. We KNOW electricity is expensive in Spain but nothing is done.
