Services – Electricity Providers
Can any Digamite out there assist me with my enquiry.
My current electricity supplier is with Endesa and my house is in the Caleta de Velez area. I only visit the house a couple of times a year for at the most two weeks at a time.
I keep only the fridge freezer on whilst I’m away and I find upon my return that I receive a rather hefty bill. Is there another cheaper supplier out there and maybe the supplier can assist with queries in English
Please contact Angela on alcasbarra@hotmail.co.uk if anyone can give me any information
