Cheap Electricity Tariff
Known as the “Home Day and Night Plan” this tariff gives 10% off electricity used between 23:00 and 13:00 the following day summer time and 22:00 and 12:00 winter time. Energy used outside these hours is 20% higher than standard rate. You can apply online by following the link to the website below but it is often best to go in to the Iberdrola office and sign up there. There is a one-off charge to change the meter (around 25€). This tariff is also available from other suppliers. To visit the Iberdrola website, click here.
Cheap Rental Properties (long-term)
Many of the banks who have repossessed properties in Spain are unable to sell them and are renting them out to get income. Rents are fairly low in comparison to private landlords. The link here is to Solvia but other banks also operate Oportunidades sites too.
