The price of electricity in the wholesale market once again beat its historical record in Spain this Wednesday, reaching 189.9 euros per megawatt hour. It represents an increase of 3.4% compared to this Tuesday, which already marked the second highest price since there are records.
Today’s price has exceeded that registered on September 16 when it reached 188 euros. Thus, two days before the end of the month, September is configured as the most expensive month.
Julio had already won that crown, after reaching an average of 92.4 euros; until he was ousted in August, with 106 euros. However, in these 28 days, September has already reached a average of 153.7 euros, pulverizing the previous records.
