we have a townhouse in villamartin and currently (no pun intended!) our electricity supply is at 3.3kw. we're only there during summer months and this hasn't been an issue up to now, but when we went to use the oven on our last visit the fuse in the consumer unit kept tripping.
we have since been advised that the fuseboard has a 15amp main switch and the oven is 25amp so the supply into the house needs upgrading. been quoted for an electrician €140 for the board upgrade including certificate and taxes and been informed that iberdrola charge anything between €10-120? (not sure for what), that gets added to your bill.
can someone advise if this all sounds correct please?
will this upgrade mean we are now on 5.75kw and if so can someone advise the difference in the monthly standing charge etc between the 3.3kw and 5.75kw tariffs. we are not on night/day as our visits are not frequent enough to bother at the moment, so just on standard tariff.
many thanks for any info.
