The secret to reducing your energy bills is not down to just one element. There are four additional levers that will multiply your efforts. Combining these elements can save you more than 200 euros per year.

    The power term is the fixed term that has to be paid for being connected to the electricity grid. You pay this regardless of your consumption, even when you go on holiday, even if you do not switch on a single light. But not everybody pays the same. You can choose to contract more or less kW:

    • The more kW of power you contract, the more you pay
    • The more devices you have working at once (air conditioner, electric heating, dishwasher, oven…), the more kW you need
    Con la tarifa regulada PVPC es imposible saber cuánto te va a costar el kWh

    One in four homes does not even know their contracted power according to the Household Panel of the National Commission for Markets and Competition (CNMC). And even if you do know, how can you be sure that you should lower it?

    If there is a margin to lower your contracted power, you can save over 60 euros per year

    Contracting more power than you need means you will be paying more than you should be, but having too little power means “that you will blow the fuse” each time you use the washing machine and air conditioner at the same time, for example.

    Furthermore, changing your contracted power entails an associated cost and you can only change it once a year. You need to think carefully before making the decision.
