Spanish electricity firm Endesa ticked off for sneaky charge

ENDESA has been ordered to stop trying to charge for upgrading domestic meters.

The company had been hoping to pass on the 9.04 euros reconnection fee to customers and had already sent out thousands of letters to clients in Andalucía.

The government has ruled this illegal.

  1. I have just read the above letter with interest as I was about to write to you regarding a question I have regarding water charges.
    My question is the legality of a community management to enforce quite substantial charges to upgrade the water system meters, we already pay a standing charge of 30 euro a quarter plus usage as read by meter. The mayor of the town has committed 80,000 euro for the work to be upgraded for our community of 300 dwellers, which I think is more than enough to do this work , according to our community the work will cost 400,00 euro to complete, when I questioned the bill which was not from the water company for 450 euro I was told the water company are not getting the money ??we have been told to pay this money by June 15th. I live in Sabinillas in an urbaization, I’d really like to know if any of your readers has an answer or comment to this question I would be very grateful.

  2. We and two Spanish neighbours, who do not live in their country houses, have a private supply with a transformer. To make a long story short, Endesa have isolated our supply at the closest private pylon to the grid (it is chained & padlocked in the off position). I have seen this with my own eyes & my electrician has confirmed this to be the case. We spoke to Endesa, who say they have not done it, the problem is ours & they can do nothing to help.

    So we find ourselves at the time of writing to have been without any power for 45 hours & not knowing what to do about it. My electrician can do nothing, for legal reasons, & Endesa refuse to do anything!
