They are the amounts payable to the distribution company for the procedures required to handle a new point of supply or to increase the power rating of an existing installation.
Flat rates nationwide. Paid in accordance with the characteristics of the supply. The subscriber connection fees payable are set by the autonomous regions within a margin of ± 5% of the fees established in the ministerial order, although the regions do not always apply this margin.

This is an official document issued by an authorised installation agent, certify that the installation has been performed in accordance with the regulations, with the document itself giving the details of the installation.
This document indicates the characteristics of an installation, the power rating and quality.
The CIE (BIE) may be required for various reasons:
According to the terms of Article 79 of Royal Decree 1955/2000, this is the amount to be handed over when the contract is arranged, equal to the theoretical monthly amount to be invoiced corresponding to fifty hours of usage of the power rating.
|Current (A)||Standardised power ratings (kW)|
Official State Gazette 74 of 28/03/2006
The Ministry of Industry and Tourism (Minetur) regulated the standardised power ratings in 2006, and all new contracts must have a power rating aligned with the above table. Those users wishing to increase or reduce their power rating must choose from among the standardised values in the table, wherever the supply is 15 kW less.
Maximeters are fitted to all installations with a power above 15 kW. They measure the maximum power during the different invoicing periods, in intervals of 15 minutes. They may also be fitted for low-voltage tariffs (2.0 or 2.1) provided that they are uninterruptible supplies (such as lifts) or for emergency support (this supplied must be granted as uninterruptible by means of the Distributor and the Ministry of Industry and Tourism).
A reading of the maximeter provides various options for invoicing:
This is the Power Control SWITCH, the function of which is to limit the maximum power contracted for an installation.
The ICP is fitted to the general distribution and protection board of your installation, or integrated within the new meters. As a general rule, the ICP is tripped if the installation demands more power than that contracted.
This is the Universal Point of Supply Code, or the “ID number” of a gas for electricity supply. There can be no identical numbers. It always begins with ES, followed by a series of numbers and two letters designated by the distribution company.
The CUPS must always be included on invoices, and is needed in order to switch to Fenie Energía.
They are used to remunerate distribution, transport and other regulated costs, they are regulated by the CNMC and the Government, the marketers are in charge of collecting it and giving it directly to the area distributors and the corresponding part, to Red Eléctrica.
They are applied to the fixed term (power) and the variable term (consumption).
These periods are approximate* and correspond to a “change of reseller without modifications”. For any other type of contract (news supply, modifications…), the periods will change. To settle any queries you might have, you should contact your Energy Agent.
*The periods may vary depending on the distributor
This is the Voluntary Small-scale Consumer Price, which took effect on 1 April 2014 to replace the former TUR (last-resort tariff). The price of this tariff is set by the Government. The PVPC will be the maximum price that all the Reference resellers may charge.
The PVPC is available to all supplies of a voltage no greater than 1 kV and a contracted power rating below 10 kW (this power rating limit may be modified by the Government).
This contractual mode can only be offered by the CORES (Reference Resellers), since in order to market it a series of requirements established by the Government filled.
This is a Government measure to protect the most vulnerable groups of society. It comprises a discount set by the Government and applied to the PVPC rate.
The only Resellers that can apply the Social Rebate of the COR (Last Resort Resellers).
The Social Rebate is available at:
Depending on the contracted power rating of the installation and its voltage, supplies will be classified within one tariff or another.
