ICP Trip Causes Consumers to Flip!

The legal obligation on behalf of the Electricity Providers in Spain to instal ‘current limiters’ (or ICP – Interruptor de Control de Potencia) is causing concern for many consumers.

Endesa (and all other electricity providers) are currently writing to all consumers for whom they have no record of an ICP ever being fitted. Failure to repsond to the initial letter (recorded delivery!) results in a second letter giving 20 days to respond before penalties are applied! See my earlier post Letter from Endesa Re: ICP for more information.

For many consumers, especially those who were very badly advised at time of property purchase to simply ‘inherit’ the electricity contract from the previous owner’s grandfather(!?), these people now require major works to upgrade their electricity supply.

Q. Why you ask?
