How is the electricity rate calculated?

One of the doubts that most arise among users is how to calculate the electricity ratea. First of all, it is necessary to understand that the energy produced by all electricity generating sources is auctioned every day in the electricity pool, a place where companies sell the energy they produce at a certain price according to supply and demand. This pool is used to establish the electricity price for each hour of each day and the resulting price of each auction is the daily price per kWh.

Why does the price of electricity vary so much?

Variations in the price of electricity depend on various factors such as the increase or decrease in demand, the increase or decrease in the price of gas or the increase or decrease in the price of CO2 emissions.
