Sign Up for Electricity
Here we tell you everything you need to know in order to do so
What should you bear in mind?
When signing an electric power contract you must make sure that the requested power does not exceed the maximum power allowed for the installation.
The low-voltage Electrical Installation Report (EIC) sets out the main features of your installation, such as installed power and maximum allowed power, and certifies the quality of your installation. If the requested power exceeds the allowed power, you should provide a new certification issued by an electrician.
You should make sure you only have one electricity supply for the residents' or homeowners' association, for the garage or staircase, etc.

What documentation do I need?
To sign up for electric power supply for a homeowners' association you need to submit the following documents:
- First occupancy permit or opening licence for the first contract.
- Certificate of occupancy issued by the provincial body of the Ministry of Public Works or Regional Government, or final rating certificate.
- Low-voltage electrical installation certificate, depending on the type of supply, in triplicate, issued by the electrical contractor who carried out the installation and stamped by the competent authority.
- Tax ID number (NIF) of the homeowners' association.
- Title deed or award document for public property developments.
What does the sign-up cost depend on?
The contract price depends on the recognised rights of the supply point for which the service is to be activated. The various items included in the bill resulting from the new contract or the requested expansion are listed below:
Under article 49 of Royal Decree 1995/2000, dated 1 December, the service connection fee is considered to be the financial consideration payable to the distribution company for carrying out all of the actions required to install a new energy supply point, or to upgrade an existing one.
Once the service connection fee has been paid, it will be attached to the installations, therefore only the service extension and access fees exceeding the recognized amounts should be paid for. The access fee will always be paid for upon signing the contract.
Under article 50 of Royal Decree 1995/2000, distribution companies may charge for connecting a supply point to the power grid, and they are responsible for carrying out this operation. Furthermore, the mains connection fee will be paid for when the distribution company has to certify the metering equipment.
Under article 50 of Royal Decree 1995/2000, the relevant testing fee will be paid by the consumer when the distribution company carries out this operation.
In turn, a testing fee shall not apply to power upgrades up to the maximum allowed for the installation, as specified in the latest installer bulletin, provided that the installation is less than 20 years old.
Under article 79 of Royal Decree 1955/2000, upon signing the contract, the amount payable shall be equal to the theoretical monthly billing for 50 hours use of the power signed up for.
