Will you always save money by reducing your power?

False. This is one of the most common myths about energy. In truth, dropping your contracted power does not guarantee that you will save money on your electricity bill.

Beware, because if you drop your power below your household’s requirements, you may trip the fuses whenever your consumption is higher than your contracted power. You will have to wait one year before you can increase it again, but if you cannot wait, rectifying it will entail new expenses which will eat away at your savings. Reconnecting an installation can cost 300 euros. Therefore, it is wise not to make a mistake when deciding to change tariff and you should be very sure that your chosen power will enable you to live without repeatedly tripping the fuses.

If you really want to save, follow our energy efficiency tips and choose the electricity tariff that best suits your habits and requirements. You can also use Nexo, an electricity consumption meter that enables you to assess your household’s energy consumption and provides you with real time information about how much electricity you are using.
