How much does this procedure cost?

The cost of contracting electricity is not unique, it will depend on the rate you select and the offers of the company you decide to take to provide you with the service. It is important that you keep in mind the two modalities of this market in Spain. There are two, the regulated and the free.

Regulated market.
