The “gas cap” fails in its task of lowering electricity: June leaves the third most expensive bill in history

The star measure to lower the electricity bill has been a major fiasco. At least in June, with fifteen days of application, since the “cap” of gas prices for electricity generation at 40 euros per megawatt hour entered into force on the 15th of this month. And it is that, according to the calculations of Facua-Consumers in Action, the one in June will be the third highest electricity bill in history because a average user will pay about 133.85 euros, almost 65% more than a year ago, according to the calculations of the organization.

In a statement, Facua has highlighted that after the decreases of the two previous months the price of electricity has “shot up” again in June and, in addition, considers that both the mechanism of the “cap on gas” for the generation of electricity as well as the reduction of VAT on electricity to 5% will have a “low impact”. For this reason, it insists on demanding from the Government “more effective measures to protect families.”
