A 3% reduction in the price of electricity for the regulated market takes effect as of today.

The drop in the price of the tariff applied in the regulated market is of five euros per megawatt / hour (MWh) to the total electricity bill of consumers.

This measure was approved by the Energy Services Regulatory Authority (ERSE), on April 1, following a fall in energy prices in the Iberian Electricity Market (MIBEL).


Hi Linda, I totally agree. I have a holiday home in Portugal that is also let to Guests etc.. by Algarve villa Holidays limited in the busy months of the year-but effectively this is only in use for 2/3rds of the year. But my electricity bill in Portugal is nearly "double" that of my combined electricity & Gas utility costs for the year of our uk family home!!
