The price of power will go down again until noon before hitting €180 and staying there pretty much until the evening.
The price will peak at 8-9 p.m. hitting €490 and come down again to €231 an hour later.
In Finland, the daily average price will drop by 2.3 percent of €109.3, in Latvia and Lithuania by 36.4 percent to €249.
The average price hike follows maintenance work on the 330-kilovolt energy link between Estonia and Latvia that caused unusually low prices in Estonia.
The average price for last week came to €298.47/MWh.
