i have just recieved my latest bill from iberdrola for the last month which seems high due to been in uk and have turned off electric when i left in march

i am on 5.75 kwh per hour supply and am trying to find out if 28 euro including iva is correct for a month supply  and is they any other deals where you dont pay as high Potencia facturada with me only using my house around 6 weeks a year

Reducing your potentia will reduce your monthly standing charge, but will also cause your smart meter to disconnect your supply if you exceed your contracted power.

Do you need 5.75kw?

yes i only just upgraded due to power tipping when having oven on ect

not bothered about paying my bill trying to find out if you get a better deal with the Potencia facturada due to house been empty

if it means paying more for the electric i use when i use house but reduces the Potencia facturada so cheaper when in uk

Hi Richard,

I believe Iberdrola offer tailored 'Summer " and "  Winter " Plans.

I think the Summer Plan runs from mid June until mid September.

If this fits your holiday periods it may be worth making further enquirees over its availability in your area .

LeckyLes.

I pay 23€ per mth when the house is empty. Because mine is a holiday home and I don't go over the colder mths i have a lower tariff

As I understand it, the standing charge is regulated by government and can't be avoided. 

If you fancy a bit of light reading, have a look at Real Decreto 1164/2001 and the other laws referenced in it.
