Once you have bought your second home in Spain, after the title deed is signed, a new electricity contract is signed with an electric provider. The biggest electrical providers in Spain are Endesa & Iberdrola.
In order to create a new electricity contract with any of the big electrical companies a installation certificate is required. These certificates are provided by an official electrician who will certify that your installation is secure and meets all requirements.
If you have bought a property with Al Nouri Group Spain, this certificate will be arranged for you and we will apply for a new contract by sending all your ownership documents:
- Nota Simple
- Passport copies
- Bank Account certificate
Within 7 days the electrical company will install a new electrical meter, and from then the property will have a supply.
Understanding your electric bills
Once supply is set up, the bills will either be monthly or by trimesters. The bills will comprise three amounts:
1. Fixed costs
Fixed costs comprise the rental of the electric meter & the power level selected.
Consumption costs are the direct result of how much electric is used
Taxes are added to the sum of both Fixed costs + consumption
Fixed costs + Consumption + Taxes = Total Bill
Increasing your power supply
If the contracted power is not sufficient for the house, we can arrange for the power to be increased. This is done by visiting the electric providers office and to change the contract. This does have an additional cost that may vary depending on the contract. The increase can take up to 21 days.
