Water, Electricity and Phone

2. Electricity

So far, there is only one electricity company in each area of Spain. They have offices in certain municipalities, where you can go with a copy of title deed, your NIE-number, identification documents and the receipt for payment of last bill by previous owner (unless the promotor/sales agent arranges also this service contract for you). Certain electricity company will ask you to phone in changes in an existing contract. Consider how much power you need and adjust the contract accordingly. For a normal vacation dwelling, 3,3 kW will be sufficient.

Every dwelling has its own electricity meter, and if you cannot read the meter through a window, you have the right to get a key to control consume.

Also for electricity: Do not continue in the contract of previous owner. Expensive problems for you may arise from this. There is one danger, however: If the dwelling is old, the electricity company may ask to inspect the installations and demand new installations before they issue a contract.

Again, the best system for payment is with a standing order in your bank. Make sure that there is enough money on your account for all bills, to avoid being cut off from supply and having to wait and pay for reconnection.
