The regulated price of natural gas, known as the Last Resort Rate (TUR), will rise by 8.67% on average starting next Sunday, January 1, according to sources from the Ministry for Ecological Transition.

Specifically, for an average TUR 1 customer, with a consumption of less than or equal to 5,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year, this represents an increase of 7.54% in their annual bill without taxes.

For its part, for a TUR 2 customer, with a consumption greater than 5,000 kWh/year and less than or equal to 15,000 kWh/year, it represents an increase of 8.94% in their annual bill without taxes. For a TUR 3 customer, with a consumption greater than 15,000 kWh/year and less than or equal to 50,000 kWh/year, it represents an increase of 9.21% in their annual bill without taxes.

The ministry highlighted that since Royal Decree Law 17/2021 came into force in October 2021, the impact of high natural gas prices on consumers has been mitigated, with savings for an average TUR 1 customer of 117 euros per year. , of 272 euros per year for TUR 2 and 885 euros per year for one of TUR 3, with respect to the impact of not having adopted the measures.

The TUR is a rate that can be used by any consumer connected to natural gas networks with pressure less than or equal to 4 bar and whose annual consumption is less than or equal to 50,000 kWh.
