For its part, the Royal Decree-Law 6/2009, of 30 April, whereby measures in the energy sector and approves the social bond, you designate, in its second additional provision to the marketing companies that should assume the obligation to supply of last resort in the Peninsular and the Balearic Islands.

The fixed terms and variables of the rates will be updated when any change occurs in fixed terms and variables of tolls and canons of system access or in reductions in force ratios. The term variable will be updated with quarterly, from the 1st day of January, April, July and October of each year, provided that the cost of the raw experience a change upward or exceeding 2% down.

Moreover, law 34/1998, of October 7, features the transitional regime of the gases manufactured in island Territories, so that until the completion and commissioning of the facilities that allow the supply of natural gas, the distribution companies may be manufactured gas supply. The order ITC/1660/2009, of 22 June, determines the rates applicable to the supply of gases manufactured in island territories until the arrival of natural gas, in application of the provisions in article 25.1 of the Royal Decree 949/2001 of 3 August. The sole additional provision of this order, establishes that the rates to be applied by companies distributors of gases manufactured by channeling in island territories the Directorate-General of energy and mines will determine them.

By virtue of, taking into account the order ITC/3354/2010, of 28 December, that establishing the tolls and fees associated with the access by third parties to the gas installations, this General direction of energy and mines dictates the prices that will be in effect from zero hours on October 1, 2011, by setting: first.

Prices without taxes of last resort of natural gas supply rate, will be those indicated below: rate term fixed (€post-trial) / month Variable cents/kWh TUR.1 consumption less than or equal to 5,000 kWh per year.





4.09 5,500750 TUR.2 consumption exceeds 5,000 kWh per year and less than or equal to 50,000 kWh per year.





8.33 4,893650 second.

Prices excluding tax to apply to consumers of manufactured by channelling gas located in island Territories are those indicated below: rate term fixed (€post-trial) / month Variable cents/kWh consumption exceeding 5,000 kWh/year 4.09 T.1 5,500750 T.2 consumption exceeds 5,000 kWh per year and less than or equal to 50,000 kWh/year 8.33 4,893650 T.3 consumption exceeds 50,000 kWh per year and not exceeding 100,000 kWh/year 53,51 4,345512 T.4 consumption exceeds 100,000 kWh per year 160,69 4,071212 third.
