Why does the light go up?

The prices of the wholesale market have a direct impact on the regulated rate -the so-called PVPC-, to which almost 11 million consumers in the country are covered, and serve as a reference for the other 17 million who have contracted their supply in the free market.

The increase in the electricity market in recent months is mainly explained by the high gas prices in the markets and carbon dioxide emission rights (CO2), at record highs this year.
