Electricity prices for households in Portugal 2010-2020, semi-annually

Since the first half of 2010, household electricity prices in Portugal have seen an overall increase, rising to 22.31 euro cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) in the first half of 2020. The highest price during the reporting period was in the first half of 2016, at 23.5 euro cents per kWh. Households with an annual consumption of 2,500 kWh to 5,000 kWh tended to pay less for their electricity compared to those with a consumption of between 1,000 kWh and 2,499 kWh.

International comparisons

Portuguese households pay some of the highest prices for electricity across Europe. In addition to paying some of the highest prices in Europe, electricity prices in Portugal are higher than in many countries worldwide. In 2018, prices were more than twice as much as the average household paid in the United States. One reason for the high prices in Portugal is the high tax burden. Approximately 52 percent of the price of electricity is tax related.
