A man from Iberdrola called today ( he seemed genuine) and offered to fix the price of our Electricity ( price per unit) for 2 years. I think this was if we paid our bill every 2 months without the estimated bill every other month. Does anybody know anything about this? He had no information on paper that he could give us and we can't find anything about this on the Iberdrola website. Thanks for your help.

Not 100% certain, I asked him for identification which he didn't have, but we live in a small village and he was chatting to our neighbour who is an Electrician, as if they knew each other, before I answered the door. I will ask him when I see him whether the guy is legitimate.. Also there was no pressure to enter the house or part with money and he told us to think about it and left his phone number for us to call him if we wanted to sign up for this.

If he was genuine he would definitely have id with him so if I were you I'd be very cautious with this guy.

We have signed up for this around 6 months ago and so far so good. Real bills every 2 months and you can also say what day of the month you want your direct debit to come out on.

Be careful!

This IS a genuine offer but;
  • The prices turned out to be more than I was paying before
  • The first bill was 1 month after I signed and not 2 as quoted
  • The 10% discount offered is only on the potencia contracted and not on energy consumed as I was told

I suspect I will still be better off but be careful to check everything.

Thanks for the information. Did you actually see anything in writing?
Yes - 11 pages of 'small print'.

It did mention the energy and potencia rates but they quote per month and the bill charges potencia per day.


In truth, I was confused between potencia and energia - I may have assumed that I would get 10% discount from energia which is not the case.
