problem with Sevillana Endesa - extra cost because of missing power limiter
If you find a “penalizacion p/ausencia de icp” cost on your electricity bill you are probably caught in one of the new tricks from Sevillana Endesa to get more money out of you!
It is pretty useless to call 800 760 333 the service hotline, because it is either busy or they don’t want to listen to you.
The background is that Sevillana Endesa, Iberola or any other Electricity provider in Spain has the right to make you install what they call “ limitador de potencia” or ICP (Power limiter) which is basically a very slow fuse that disconnects all your houses electricity in case you use more power than your contract allows you.
So you have to call one of the few electricians that have been granted the right by Endesa to connect 4 cables and a anti-tamper seal in 15 minutes and will charge you expensive to do so!
