Energy. Electricity invoices will be down by 462 euros a year on average.

Barcelona Energia’s energy savings plan has enabled stallholders at twelve municipal markets to save almost 70,000 euros since they switched to the public power distributor in March.

An analysis of 75% of invoices from some market stalls which contracted services with Barcelona Energia demonstrates that their annual electricity costs are down by 18% on average, representing a saving or roughly 462 euros every year.

That saving is also environmental, as the change to 100% renewable energy means markets have reduced their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 280 tonnes a year.
