Due to low wind power production, the cost of stock electricity has been high this week. On Thursday, the average taxable price of electricity reached a high of over 24 cents per kilowatt hour. However, on Friday, the average price of exchange electricity including taxes dropped slightly to about 14.5 cents per kilowatt hour. From six in the evening, the price rose to more than 18 cents per kilowatt hour.
On Saturday, exchange electricity prices dropped again, with the taxed average price being about 11.3 cents per kilowatt hour. This was still expensive compared to the November average of 7.3 cents per kilowatt hour. The price dropped below ten cents early in the morning and late in the evening, with a peak price after 5 p.m.
The most expensive rate of electricity was at midnight on Saturday and Sunday when it cost about 7.3 cents per kilowatt hour including taxes. Despite these fluctuations in price throughout most of the day, electricity remained expensive with a rate of 16.12 cents per kilowatt hour including taxes being the most expensive rate during that time period
