Here in Spain, unlike the UK, there is a fee for contracted power (“potencia contratada” in Spanish). So even if you don’t actually use any electricity, you still have to pay to effectively have it on standby. On top of that 60% of a bill is tax and VAT.
For Brits the contracted power is an alien concept. Not only does it mean a monthly fee for nothing but a limit on how much power you can use at one time in your property. If you go over it, then your smart meter will cut the power off to the property.
With a Smart Meter you can wave goodbye to estimated readings. Smart Meters replace your existing gas and electric meters and tell you more about how you use the energy in your home. They are a new form of intelligent technology that who exactly how you use your energy in real time.
You can contract us for an Electric Upgrade. The first step is to upgrade your panel by bringing more power from the utility in to your home. You can replace the existing meter and circuit breakers to allow it to handle more power, or replace an electrical panel or circuit breakers that are damaged or dangerous.
