The shock over the new electricity tariff is the first of any magnitude in the coalition government after the departure of Pablo Iglesias and it began in the Council of Ministers, according to government sources tell EL MUNDO. It was last June 1, when the fourth vice president, Teresa RiberaHe presented his points in the agenda on the electricity bill and did not expect much debate. The new rate was regulated in a ministerial order that had already been explained weeks before in the Delegate Commission of Economic Affairs without the ministers of Podemos raising objections.

However, in the presence of Pedro SanchezGarzn did take the floor and, according to the sources consulted, made comments online with consumer associations such as Facua about the upward evolution of the electricity bill and how the government was getting out of hand. We are not up to the task. You have to be fasterhe said, according to government sources. A debate was then opened in which the agreement between the PSOE and United Podemos came to light on the so-called benefits fallen from the sky that Ribera attributes to, above all, the electricity companies that operate hydro and nuclear power plants. But it is trying to attack them slowly, according to the other wing of the government, through a long-running bill.

On the side of the PSOE they assure that Garzn was not so combative and that, in any case, there was silence from Podemos at the peak moment in the Delegate Commission for Economic Affairs. The Minister of Social Security, Jos Luis Escriv, revealed on Antena 3 that the ministers of United We Can who are part of that commission –Yolanda Daz and Garzn- did not oppose, despite the fact that the ministerial order to introduce the new tariff system was discussed in detail under the presidency of Nadia calvio. She has not yet spoken in public, but shares irritation with Ribera and other ministers about Podemos’ attack on the measure. On the side of United We Can there is also internal division, because the Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarra, has taken the opportunity to mark territory, and anticipate the successor designated by Pablo Iglesias, Yolanda Daz. Ione was the first out and Alberto then had to say what he had said in private and in public, they say on this side of the coalition table.

The Ministry of Consumer Affairs declined to comment beyond noting that Ribera did not previously work his ministerial order with Garzn, even though it had a clear effect on consumers.

Unidos Podemos has connected more with the street in this area and Ribera, overwhelmed, has had to resort to asking the National Commission of Markets and Competition (CNMC) to investigate whether there has been price manipulation in the market to Keep offering a picture of activity after your stumble from the new bill.

Garzn, for his part, made it clear yesterday that he will insist on the battle at a press conference. He transferred his absolute concern about the rise in electricity rates and said that the central government is willing to support any measure that implies a drop in the price of basic supplies such as electricity. It is clear that the rates, as the unions have requested, can be improved so that families pay less. We are going to support all the measures that are destined to lower the electricity bill, he said.

The CNMC considers it premature to tweak the system, but Garzn insisted. Like Belarra, in which the off-peak time in the consumption of electricity must be brought forward to 22:00 and dusted off the request to create a public energy company that has social criteria and not just profit maximization. He criticized that in the first months of this year Endesa gave an income statement with profits of more than 1,000 million euros.

This has reported some additional benefits to the Italian public company that it is the maximum owner of Endesa, a company that at the time was a Spanish public company, he reproached, according to Efe.

For its part, the solvency rating agency Fitch classified as negative for the electricity system Ribera’s aforementioned hack of the electricity companies as a political intervention that challenges the design of the marginal cost market at the EU level and reduces the predictability of the cost.
