Useful Information

Resetting your smart meter: Most of Spain should now be converted to smart meters where electricity utilities can control the power contracted/available to you remotely as well as measure consumption. In the event that you inadvertently consume more than your contracted power level the smart meter may trip off, displaying ICP 00 PULSE. But then you probably have no internet connection to find out what to do! All it takes is to disconnect the device which you suspect is responsible and simply turn off and on the main breaker on your panel (even though there appears no power to the panel!).
