We provide you with a breakdown of the billed energy and services:
Includes items related to energy supply.
Monthly fixed charge: the amount you pay for service availability at your home. The price depends on the subscribed rate (determined by your annual consumption).
Consumption billed: amount for the energy consumed during the billing period. It is obtained by multiplying the consumption in the period (kWh) by the price per kWh.
Discounts: displays the saving obtained, if discounts apply.
Natural gas tax: this is a tax on natural gas calculated by multiplying the billed kWh usage by 0.00234 ¤/kWh, equivalent to 0.65 ¤/GJ, as established in the Spanish Tax Measures for Energy Sustainability Act (Law 15/2012 of 27 December).
SERVICES AND OTHER ITEMS
Includes items connected to other non-energy-related services, if they have been subscribed.
Metering equipment rental: sthis is calculated by multiplying the number of days in the billing period by the monthly meter rental price, unless the meter is owned by the customer, in which case it is not subject to billing. This price is regulated by the government.
TOTAL ENERGY, SERVICES AND OTHER ITEMS
Shows the total amount to be billed for energy, services and other items detailed in the preceding sections. VAT is added to this amount.
VAT (Value Added Tax): the current rate is applied to the sum of the preceding items. In the case of the Canaries, IGIC will be applied at the current rate and in the case of Ceuta and Melilla, IPSI at the current rate.
Total bill amount: the final payable bill amount.
On occasions, more than one billing line for a given item may be displayed. This is the case when a change in the applicable prices occurs within a given billing period.
Under the billing details appears information related with your "Consumption". The previous and current meter readings and their corresponding dates are given. In the case of natural gas, consumption is measured in cubic metres (1 m3 = 1,000 litres).
Subtracting the previous reading from the current reading gives the natural gas consumption in cubic metres of this billing period. For the purpose of billing these m3, they must be converted into energy consumption in kilowatts-hour (kWh). To do so, the Correction Factor and PCS (Upper Calorific Value) are used, the values of which are set forth by ENAGAS and the Official State Gazette.
This consumption in kWh is the same as that shown in the billing details, in consumption billed. There may be different types of readings:
• The actual reading is the value read on the supply meter on the corresponding date by your distribution company.
• The estimated reading is a value calculated by the distribution company, using the historical consumption as a basis and according to a formula regulated by the Ministry of Industry.
Remember that you also have the option of reading your meter yourself, that is, you can provide the reading from your meter, either on the Customer Services Telephone 900 100 309 or at our Virtual Office for inclusion on your next bill.
