New electricity access tariffs for businesses

A new regulation is changing electricity access tolls and tariffs. This new regulation also affects electricity access tariffs for businesses. We explain everything about these changes.

Changes in electricity tariffs for businesses

The new regulation affecting tariffs aims to simplify the model and promote more efficient energy consumption.

Changes in access tariffs for companies can be grouped into three sections:

  • Name or nomenclature: we have changed from a 15-tariff structure to a more simplified model with 6 business access tariffs.
  • Energy periods: the new regulation establishes 3 time-of-use periods for powers below 15kW and 6 periods for powers greater than 15kW
  • Power periods: it opens up the possibility to contract 2 different powers for low voltage supplies (<1kV) and up to 6 powers in the case of high voltage supplies.

New name of electricity tariffs for businesses

Access tariffs have always been part of your electricity bill. It is an expense regulated by the government, and affects both the price of the contracted power and the price of the energy consumed.

As far as company tariffs in 2021 are concerned, these changes will depend on the maximum power you need to contract (kW) and the voltage of the power supply (kV)

We are now moving to a more simplified segmentation of 6 business access tariffs, instead of the 15 that we had up until now.

  • 2.0TD: Tariffs that apply to low voltage supplies (≤1kV) for businesses that require power less than or equal to 15kW. Businesses with energy requirements similar to a household.
  • 3.0TD: Companies and businesses with low voltage needs (≤1kV) that, in this case, require power greater than 15kW. Small and medium-sized businesses with a demand for higher electrical power.
  • 6.1TD, 6.2TD, 6.3TD and 6.4TD: These are the tariffs that are applied in companies connected to high-voltage supplies. This is the case of companies or factories that use more than 1kV of voltage in their electricity supply.

Although electricity tariffs in companies are a regulated cost, you can adjust your electricity tariff and adjust the contracted power to be able to save on your bills.

 

Energy and power time bands in new tariffs and electricity charges for business

Energy and power time bands refer to how the tariff price varies throughout the day and depending on the season of the year.

In the case of companies with powers less than 15kW, the change is similar to the case of  new domestic electricity tariffs for domestic use.

In the case of companies or homes with powers greater than 15kW you will move to a model with 6 time bands both in terms of power and energy.

Tables Current Situation and Circular Tolls

This new access tariff and charge structure involves changes at three levels:

  1. The periods for time discrimination, both in power and energy, are extended to 6 for low voltage 3.0TD supplies.
  2. The 6 time bands (P1 to P6) differ depending on geographical location, season, day of the week, and time of day. The off-peak period (P6) is extended to include all hours on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
  3. Power capacities under contract should be in ascending order, i.e. the power under contract in time band P1 should be less than or equal to that of P2, power in P2 should be less than or equal to that of P3, and so on up to time band P6.

 

Calendar of company electricity tariffs by geographical area

Six periods are now established for access tariffs and charges, and divided according to the season, the day of the week and the time of day, as per following calendar depending on where you live:

Mainland

Calendar of electricity rates of Peninsula companies

(**) Excluding both replaceable and non-fixed-date holidays and 6 January.

 

Balearic Islands

Calendar of electricity rates for companies in the Balearic Islands

(**) Excluding both replaceable and non-fixed-date holidays and 6 January.

 

Canary Islands

Calendar of electricity rates for companies in the Canary Islands

(**) Excluding both replaceable and non-fixed-date holidays and 6 January.

 

Ceuta

Calendar of electricity rates for companies in Ceuta

(**) Excluding both replaceable and non-fixed-date holidays and 6 January.

Calendar of electricity rates for companies in Melilla

(**) Excluding both replaceable and non-fixed-date holidays and 6 January.

 

In Endesa you can find a rate that fits the needs of your business or company to be able to start saving on your bill.

 

Power charge for access tariffs and electricity charges in 2021

The power charge now has 6 capacities at different prices, one for each of the 6 time periods of the consumption charge.

Power capacities under contract must follow the increasing order criterion, i.e. the power under contract in period P1 must be less than or equal to that of P2, power in P2 must be less than or equal to that of P3, and so on up to period P6.

Starting 1 June 2021 and by default, the capacities under contract are adapted to the six periods as established in the regulations:

  • Capacity under contract in period P1: capacity previously under contract in period P1.
  • Capacity under contract in periods P2, P3, P4 and P5: capacity previously under contract in period P2 (if it does not meet the criterion of increasing capacities, capacity under contract in period P1).
  • Capacity under contract in period P6: capacity previously under contract in period P3 (if it does not meet the criterion of increasing capacities, capacity under contract in period P5).

From 1 June 2021 and for 12 months, you may modify your power capacities under contract for free and up to two times, to adapt them to the new time periods. However, bear in mind that the new power capacity must be equal to or less than the highest capacity under contract at the time of the change.

Otherwise, you will have to pay the connection charges under the regulations in force.

 

How is excess power billed with the new access tariffs?

The new regulations also introduce changes in billing of demanded power that apply to the 3.0TD access tariff.

If the power demanded exceeds the power under contract in any time period, surcharges will apply for any excess use in each period, as follows:

  • For type 4 and 5 meters with excess consumption, maximeter will still be used for billing, with twice the excess power charge for the surplus of required power.
  • For all other meters (types 1, 2 and 3), billing still follows the fourth-hour load curve, where the applicable excess power charge will have a surcharge to discourage contracts for capacities lower than those demanded.

If the capacity under contract is more than demanded, any due bonuses will no longer apply.

 

How is reactive energy surplus billed under the new access tariffs?

Inductive reactive energy billing remains unchanged in the 3.0TD access tariff, expressed in €/kVArh.

It will apply over all time periods except P6, provided that the inductive reactive consumption exceeds 33% of the active consumption.
