The Government is considering to rise the indirect taxes
Industry Minister, José Manuel Soria, announced today that the government is studying the possibility of “soon” an increase in indirect taxes on energy generation.
Soria has rejected the tax in question, but has not detailed the charges referred.
“What has been suggested Brussels to Spain, are increases in indirect taxation, which does not mean necessarily a type of excise or other,” he said in remarks to reporters after attending a conference.
As to whether the electricity tariff of last resort (TUR) will rise or not in the next revision of July, Soria has insisted that its evolution will depend on the prices they throw the auction to be held to fix the cost of energy and, in turn, depends on the feedstock.
In addition, we must take into account the evolution of electric tolls, part of the fee set by the Government concepts and rewards regulated as renewable, transportation or distribution, he added.
Soria has reiterated that one of the major challenges that faces the Spanish electricity model is to solve the “serious and deep” tariff deficit problem, whose solution is to lower costs, raise revenue or do both simultaneously .
The minister insisted that the electrical system must be sustainable both environmentally, so it has expressed its support for renewable, but also “economically and financially.”
