Would you rather compare on your own with our online search? Comparing deals is very simple. All you need to do is:
1. Select from the tabs above if you are interested in comparing deals on electricity, gas or both.
2. Enter your actual energy habits if you have a recent energy bill or compare deals by estimating your energy consumption (by clicking “Please estimate” and chosing the number of people in your household).
3. Enter your total Annual Energy Consumption or specify your annual consumption per periods.
4. Complete the comparison by providing us with your energy supply location (home or business), postcode, phone and email address. Do not worry, we will not spam you.
You can click on the question mark icons to see explanations on some particular items.
Please find below some basic information on the main items on your energy bill. However, if you need extra help, you can always read our Understand your bill and FAQ sections or get in touch with us here.
WHAT IS THE CONTRACTED POWER (“POTENCIA”)?
The contracted power or "potencia" is the power that a client agrees to contract with the electricity company. It is expressed in kilowatts and it depends on the number of electrical appliances that we have: the greater our energy needs, the greater the contracted power must be. It is the maximum amount of electricity that we can consume in our home with all the appliances working at the same time.
WHAT IS THE ENERGY CONSUMED (“COSTE DE LA ENERGIA”)?
It is the cost of energy: what we pay for the kilowatt per hour. It is the non-fixed part of your energy bill, and it basically translates to how much energy you have actually used in the billing period.
The energy consumed rate is the price at which the energy companies sell the electricity to the customers and that is defined in the contract that each consumer signs with his or her company. In the case of consumers who have a regulated tariff, this cost is determined by the average of the prices of electricity in the wholesale market during the billing months.
WHAT IS THE TIME DISCRIMINATION?
Our energy consumption will be more expensive or cheaper depending on the times of day in which we make that consumption. In this way there are some peak hours (“punta”) where energy is more expensive, which usually corresponds to the daytime hours of the day, and a off-peak ("llano") period where electricity is cheaper and the super off-peak ("valle"), where the electricity is the cheapest.
HOW EASY IS TO CHANGE ELECTRICITY COMPANY?
Many people think that changing the electricity company is complex and, therefore, do not consider it until they have a problem with their current company. However, this change is very simple and switching can mean saving more than 200 euros per year on the electricity bill.
Anyone can change the electricity company at any time, although if we have a commitment (“permanencia”) to stay with our current we would either have to wait for the end of the contract or pay the penalty the current supplier has set.
If you want to switch, simply enter your details on our web form and instantly chose and switch which supplier or tariff you want. We will submit your information to the new company and your application will be processed in 4 to 6 weeks.
