Worrying about your Electric?

Do you think your electric bills are too high, or there are things you don't understand on your bill?

Maybe you are unsure what tariff to be on!

We are here to help.  Just send us your invoice and we can review it, clarify what things mean and guide you to any possible saving.

Changing the Name on the Contract

Have you just bought or sold your property and need to change name on the property electricity contract?

No problem, give us the new details and supporting documents, we will then prepare the new contract for you. 

Save by Changing to another Tariff

  • Day/Night Tariffs

  • Solar Virtual Battery

We can guide you to the best tariff that fits your lifestyle, enabling you to make the most savings. 

Do you need to Change your contracted kW?

Maybe you think you are contracting too much and can make a saving by reducing the contracted kilowattage; or your power keeps tripping out due to an overload and you need to increase kilowattage!

You lifestyle may have changed, or the previous property owners were high energy users.  Then we can reduce your contracted kW for you.  Your electric distributor will charge around €9 (+IVA) to lower your contracted kW.  You could save about €40/kW/year (+IVA), but don't lower it too much as an increase in kilowattage is pricey.

If you need to increase your contracted kilowattage, this costs around €37/kW increase + €9 (+IVA).

We are available to discuss your needs and recommend the kW.  We will then complete the necessary paperwork for the required changes.

Electrical Installation Certificate (CIE)

What is the CIE/Boletin

Also known as the "Boletin" the Electrical Installation Certificate (CIE) is a mandatory document in all homes.  It certifies that the electrical installation is in good condition and meets all technical requirements therefore ensuring all electrical installations are completely safe and do not pose any dangers.

The boletin lists all the installation features: power installed and the maximum power that the installation can take.

When do you need a new CIE

If you make any technical modifications to your electrical installation you need a new CIE.

For example;

  • Solar Installations
  • Requesting to contract more power than your installation allows

What does it cost for a CIE?

If you get a quote for any electrical work which involves technical modification to your current electrical installaion; the quote should include the provision of the CIE.

The price of a Boletin/CIE can range from €150 to €200, there is no fixed price. It will essentially depend on the characteristics of the electrical installation, the installer who performs it and even the Autonomous Community where the installation is located.

Does an Electrical Installation Certificate expire?

Although the validity period of the electricity bulletin or CIE is 20 years, this does not mean that it has to be renewed after this period since the bulletin does not expire. However, it must be updated if any changes are made to the installation.
