Endesa Discounts. Tempo Happy Rate
I have heard frustrated people ask about getting the discount at Endesa.
I just had a wonderful experience with Endesa and it was really easy.
I hired a young lady from the village who is Spanish. She also speaks and teaches English! Contact me via email and I will give you her contact information. She arranged everything for us and made an appointment in Velez Malaga. We went there at 9:00 AM when they opened and had to wait about 1.5 hours as we were the 13th person. You get a number at the door so come early.
We were given 3 option. Either 2 hours free each day, 1 day a week or 50 hours a month. We chose the 2 hours a day and we could even choose our time so we chose 8AM to 10AM every day. So we can do wash, run the dish washer, turn on the electric heaters for water or room cooling or heating, run the clothes dryer, etc in those 2 hours each day. Also they have an app for your phone where you can change those times to anything that you want and whenever you want. I have not tried that yet but I am told that it will work.
Here is a link to the Endesa Website. https://www.endesaclientes.com/tempo-happy-en.html
And the link to the app info  https://www.endesaclientes.com/small-business/faqs/our-apps.html#1383200482716 Good luck and once I figure out the app I will report back.
The young lady in the village charges 10 Euro an hour to do this for you. It took me a total of 4 hours from the time I picked her up and returned her to the Sayalonga parking lot. I hope this helps.

Water Heater Recommendations: I’m hoping someone can recommend a good person to install a water heater in La Herradura. The one that came with the house is just too small – if we fill the bathtub, we run out of water.
I am wondering if anyone has experience with On Demand water heaters or if that’s not suitable here in Spain.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
