When hiring electricity for your home or business , you will see that you have many options available.

At Enérgya-VM , of course, we want to be yours. That is why we offer you 100% clean and renewable energy, and clarity in contracts and invoices.

However, we understand that each home and each business is a world . Therefore, here is what you should know before hiring the light.

If you follow these tips, you will always choose the best option for you and yours.

1. Find out what power you really need

One of the important parts of your bill will be what is called the term of power. This concept is a fixed cost that depends on the power that you are going to contract.

The more power you contract, the more you pay, regardless of what you consume and your efforts to save energy.

For this reason, it is very important to calculate in advance what real power you need, so as not to hire more and then not use it, but you are paying for it.

To calculate the power you need, you need to know two things:

  • The consumption in watts of the main electrical devices that you will use. For that, look at the labels on your appliances.
  • Estimate what percentage of those electrical appliances you will have running at the same time .

In other words, you don’t have to add up all the powers, but estimate how much you need, simultaneously, according to your way of life.

The easiest way is to put yourself in the most common situation in winter, such as having the heating on and going to take a shower, if you have an electric heater. Or the same, but cooking at the same time, if there are many of you at home. That will mark the maximum power to contract without the differential jumping.

Keep in mind that the contracted power goes by sections. You can not contract the exact figure you want, but the closest to what you have estimated.

2. Find out what consumption profile you have

Do you work all day outside and take a shower and put the washing machine on when you arrive at night? Or, on the contrary, do you work at home and stay there almost always?

In addition to that, you will have to take into account another thing: Are you one of those who like to be attentive and save every penny? Or do you prefer not to worry and not have to be aware of when to spend electricity or not?

It is very important to know what consumption profile you have according to your way of life . That influences the next tip.

3. Choose what type of rate suits you according to the previous profile

There are rates for all tastes. At Enérgya-VM, for example, we offer you a Fixed Formula with a fixed price per kWh for those who want to know exactly what they pay. And also an Index Formula , where you pay the market price every hour, plus only 2 euros per month. The latter is ideal for those who want to save as much as possible and adapt their consumption to times when electricity is cheaper.

And they are not the only options. That is why it is very important that, once you know what consumption profile you have, you find a rate that suits it .

Which connects to the next tip.

4. Compare, compare and compare the different rates and plans

At Enérgya-VM we believe that we have the best rates for each situation, but we also want you to be the one to convince yourself of that.

So don’t settle for the first thing you see and compare ratesuntil you find the one that best connects you.

5. Find out where the electricity you are going to consume comes from

At Enérgya-VM we believe in responsible consumption and the use of clean energy.

For this reason, every month, we show you the origin of the electricity we buy and how it does not pollute or run out.

We believe that it is something important to take into account when contracting electricity, because we are risking the future.

6. Check the energy savings of household appliances

Before hiring electricity, take a look at your appliances. Not only will you know what power term you should contract, but you will also see if there is any outdated one that consumes too much.

In that case, the ideal is to change it for a more modern and lower consumption one. This way we will save on the bill and take care of the environment.

With the energy efficiency labels, which come with many appliances, it is very easy to find this out.

7. Read the contract carefully

At Enérgya-VM we want convinced customers. That is why we recommend that, when contracting electricity, you request or download a copy of that contract to read it with peace of mind .

Take special note that the rates are as in advertising, in permanence commitments and also in possible penalties, if you change before time.

And of course, if you don’t understand something, keep in mind the following advice.

8. Do not hesitate to call to resolve any questions

In Enérgya-VM we are 365 days and 24 hours. You can contact us and we will solve any question or concern.

And we will gladly do it.

We do not believe that there are questions that are left over. Therefore, even if it is a very small question about contracts, rates or services, call and we will answer it.

When it comes to contracting electricity, we can be a bit overwhelmed by the large number of offers out there. However, by following these simple tips, you will have no problem and you will get the ideal rate for you.
