Endesa was with you in difficult times. A global action plan was designed and the Endesa Te Ayuda Plan was launched with special discounts and personalised advice.
A series of measures were deployed tailored to different needs, depending on the size of the company or business. The measures applied solely to the supply contract for professional or business premises.
1. Deferred bills
- This measure applies only to SMEs and the self-employed.
To defer payment of electricity and gas bills for the duration of the state of alarm.
The requirements were that the bills were for premises where the economic activity is carried out and that they related (either totally or partially) to the period of the state of alarm.
Bills continued to be issued but were not collected. After the deactivation of the state of alarm (21 June 2020), the total amount for deferred bills was divided into 6 parts and these sums will be collected monthly for the following 6 months (June-November 2020).
Remember that, while you have pending payments, you will not be able to change electricity or gas company.
2. Reducing Power
- This measure applies to the self-employed and companies (regardless of size).
To lower the electrical power to adapt it to needs as they were during the state of alarm. To this end, we advised specifically on how to reduce your power rating.
After the state of alarm (21 June 2020), it is possible to raise your power rating again. This procedure has no cost if it is done before 21 September 2020 and if the originally contracted power is not exceeded.
If you do not exceed the power rating that you originally had, the authorisation procedures will not apply to installations over 20 years old. But if you exceed the originally contracted power rating, you may have to apply for an Electrical Installation Certificate (C.I.E.) with the associated costs.
It is recommended you undertake these changes after a technical study has been carried out to identify your power needs in order to guarantee your basic facilities (all the equipment that must remain active even if the business closes or its activity is greatly reduced).
How to increase the power rating again
If you reduced the power rating, and you have to increase it again, remember that you will have to do so:
- With the same marketer you had when you requested the reduction.
- With the same contract holder.
This way you make sure you avoid the power increase costs, as they are eliminated through this facility.
