2.Price of electricity:

Since 31 December 2012, the price of electricity, in Portugal, is no longer imposed by the Energy Services Regulatory Authority (ERSE) with electricity tariff fixed on a yearly basis. This means there is freedom to define the electricity tariff in the liberalised market, which permits to find a better energy supplier. So, every supplier company presents a different electricity per kWh price.

According to the ERSE, the final price of electricity is the sum of three parcels: Energy, Network and Taxes. Electricity prices in the free market are negotiated between suppliers and their clients. Consumers who do not yet have a supplier in the market  continue to be provided by the supplier of last resort (CUR), with a transitory tariff set by ERSE.

On their website, ERSE provides a simulator to calculate electricity prices: https://simulador.precos.erse.pt/eletricidade/
