Happy is a tariff that adjusts to your requirements and your consumption patterns. Most of our electricity consumption usually takes place at specific hours of the day (when we are at home), therefore, if you choose those hours as your Happy hours, all your electricity consumption during that time period will cost €0.
And by doing this you will be able to pay less on your electricity bills.
If your meter is not yet remote we do not know which part of your consumption corresponds to each hour in the day.
It is important to remember that in this situation, your meter does not record your hourly consumption, and that your hourly consumption habits will not be reflected in your invoice.
Therefore, with the Happy Time tariff the hourly distribution of your consumption on your invoice will not correspond to your actual consumption, but rather we will suppose it corresponds to the Spanish average (according to information from Red Eléctrica de España [the operator of the Spanish national electricity grid]).
Therefore, if you do not have a remote meter and wish to contract the Happy Time Tariff, we recommend that in winter you choose the hours 8 pm to 10 pm and in summer from 9 pm to 11 pm, which are those hours with the highest consumption, according to the electricity network operator.
If your installation is converted to the remote meter whilst you are already under contract with the Happy Time Tariff, we will notify you so that you can change your Happy hours, if you so wish.
As an alternative and until you have a remote meter, you might be interested in contracting another tariff, such as One, One Nocturna (Night One), Tempo Siempre Ganas (Always Up for It Time), Tempo Nocturna (Night Time), etc., and you could then transfer to a Happy Time Tariff when you have the remote meter installed. By 2019 virtually all consumers will have the remote meter installed.
It depends on your consumption habits, but according to the Spanish electricity network operator, the highest consumption hours for an average Spanish customer are between 8 pm and 10 pm in wintertime and between 9 pm and 11 pm in summertime. Think about when you use more electricity, choose your Happy Hours, and if after making your choice there are other hours when you consume more, no problem. We will specify what they are and you can change them.
You can change the hours or day you have selected as many times as you like, but it will only be implemented once for each billing period. In other words, your last selection before you are billed will be applied.
No, you can continue with your habits, since by choosing the hours or day that you want, it is the Tempo Happy Tariff that adapts to your consumption pattern. And this is how you can make small savings and pay less on your electricity bill.
Now with new remotely managed smart meters you can access your hourly consumption in the "My Endesa" customer area and you can find out how you are consuming and identify the Happy hours that work best for you.
Change to the 2.0DHA or 2.1DHA access rate has costs associated with the contracting rights, €9.04 + VAT if the power is normalised.
If to hire the Tempo Happy rate you need to change your access fee, the derived cost (rights) is returned to you. They will not be returned if you take advantage to make a power extension (beyond a normalization).
If you do not have a remotely managed meter, you should choose the hours or the day taking into account the standard hourly load curve of Red Eléctrica Española. In this case, the hours most recommendable in schedule of winter would be 8 p. m. to 10 .p. m. and in schedule summer from 9 p. m. to 11 p. m.
If you have consumption highly concentrated in just a few hours you may well pay less with the Happy Time Tariff. If you need to consume for many hours in the off-peak period (for example, because you have night tariff accumulators), the night tariff might be better for you.
In any case, you can try out the Happy Time Tariff and, as you do not have a permanent contract, you can return to the night tariff if you wish.
Yes, as in any circumstance, if you put many devices at the same time and exceed the contracted power, you can skip the ICP.
To avoid this situation it is recommended that you do not put all the devices at the same time and leave a few minutes between activating one and activating the next one, since at the moment of turning them on it is usually when more power is needed.
