This is my new email address, doctorlaptop @ protonmail.com. Protonmail.com is super secure. Plus it does not get hacked or blocked by gmail, Outlook, or Yahoo, etc. Please update my address in your contact list. Give it a try if you are unhappy with your current email.

Services– Endesa Rates – Information Available…..


For those who are concerned about the price of electricity from Endesa after having a smart meter fitted this site may clear things up for you.


If you are on the wrong ‘market’ for your needs they do say that it is possible to change.

Personally, some time ago we contracted to Endesa’s ‘One Luz’ tariff (which still seems to be available online) and our bill heading indicates that we are on the ‘Free Market’.

I hope this helps….



Although I am not the originator of the charges query, I for one am grateful of the response and common sense checks suggested by Chris.
I have looked at our old bills and compared the facts with the ones since having the new meter fitted.
All appears as it should be, the only difference is that our average consumption before the change was around 400-450 kwh for 2 months.
Now we have a similar average consumption for 1 month? Our usage has not changed that much, in fact we have been changing for led bulbs for some time now and use wood for winter heating.
The new meter was fitted in October, bearing in mind we have used some air con during the summer on the old meter, our winter costs should not be higher.
However, the average daily consumption has risen from 1.74€ to 3.73€ since the new meter!
I think it may be worth contacting Endesa and having a check performed on the new meter.
Thanks to Digamexstra readers for the response, it’s always good to have another opinion.

For sale  Book by Local Author

I think that some of your readers may be interested my book.

I suggest that a man could start a romantic Sunday morning by serving breakfast in bed.

The book is aimed at the partner in a relationship who rarely uses the kitchen.

I give simple breakfast ideas to spark the imagination, and even ideas for gifts

(a flower lasts a week, but silver lasts forever).

The book has absolutely nothing to do with sex, at least not directly.

It is all about breakfast in bed, and a little romance.

Interestingly, the most sales are to wives who buy the book as a present for their husbands.  🙂

Paperback: ISBN 9781910394717
Hardback: ISBN 9781910394724

Very best regards from Harry Lythall
