Hi

Does anyone know if there is an alternative provider to Iberdrola? 

I just been billed for 26 kWs consumption - total bill 31,87€ for a month when nobody was at the apartment and we leave nothing running whilst we are away.

cheers

Matey

That cost actually sounds reasonable. Are you on the correct contract with Iberdrola - they have a large range of plans and contracted power supplies.

There are a number of alternative suppliers, and you could start here:

I've done quite a few price comparisons for friends, resident and non-resident, and it's rare to find a company that are significantly cheaper than the correct Iberdrola plan.

It’s also worth seeing if you’re on the correct contracted power level (Potentia on your bill).

Too low and your meter will trip when you use too many appliances at once, too high and you’re paying a higher standing charge than you need.

We are with Fox Energia, but pay a similar amount when empty.

That cost sounds about right to be honest. My neighbours pay around the same. Nicola.

Hi Matey. We are with Fenie Energía. Just been billed for 28 days (Sept) 77.45€. We get cheaper electric from 23.00 to 13.00 hours. So do all our washing, dishwasher running the pool pump twice in that period and the aircon on from 11pm until we get up in the morning 8/9am. I’m told it’s really easy to change from one provider to another. Good luck 😎
