The price seems to have risen from $53 around 2004 to $94 by 2011, then to $124 by 2016. The companies are only starting to increase the prices of electricity that have been frozen for many years by the respective successive governments to please the electorate.

This is due to the emergence of competition, the possibility for individuals to generate their own electricity, but especially the massive investments in the latest generation of nuclear power plant: WPR and the constant research in nuclear fusion.
