Penalty for excess of the contracted power


Rates Power Pay 0


The power term in the electric bill is the price that the user pays for this power, which is multiplied by the number of kilowatts (kW) that are contracted and that reflects the fixed cost that must be paid even when there is no consumption or inactivity of a place or business. In the case of empty homes in which the owner has discharged the electricity supply but does not live there, the cost of this term must also be paid.

The customer must pay on each receipt the term of power regardless of whether or not electricity consumption.

Cost of the Power Term in the invoice

The power term is calculated by multiplying the power contracted by the billing days, which as we know may vary according to the data collected by your Distributor.

As an example, if you have a contracted power of 3.45 kW:

3,45kW x 30 days x 0,104229 €/kW day = 10,79 €

Excess of the Contracted Power

Rates 2.0A, 2.0DHA, 2.1.A y 2.1.DHA

In those cases in which the control of the power is carried out with an ICP, Power control switch, for those supply points with contracted power lower than 15 kW, that is no penalty is applied.

However, it may happen that the leads jump, and you must unplug your electrometers in order to resume the power supply.

Rate 3.0A

You can give 3 cases, depending on the maximum power demanded with respect to the contracted:

  • Less than 85%: If the maximum power demanded in the period to be billed is less than 85 percent of the contracted power, the power to be billed will be equal to 85 percent of said contracted power.
  • Between 85 and 105%: If the maximum power demanded, registered in the billing period, is within 85 to 105 percent of the contracted, said power registered will be the power to be billed. The maximum power that has been demanded will be billed, exactly the one reflected by the maximeter.
  • Greater than 105%: If the maximum power demanded, registered in the billing period, is greater than 105% of the contracted power, the power to be billed in the period considered will be equal to the value recorded plus double the difference between the registered value and the value corresponding to 105 percent of the contracted power.

We find it regulated in Royal Decree 1164/2001, of October 26, by which tariffs are established for access to electricity transmission and distribution networks.

Therefore, in Lumisa we will help you to contract the electric power according to your needs, in order not to exceed the power you already have contracted and thus not having extra costs on your bill.
