Solar - 12 replies

Michael 71 Posted by Michael 71 in Off topic on Mon Mar 27, 2023 2:47pm

Hi all, 

I am writing this as a warning / information to anyone interested  in getting solar panels installed. Please do as much research as you can, talk with others regarding solar companies and most importantly make sure you are on the correct tarrif with your electric company and that you actually will benefit financially from having panels installed. 

We had solar panels installed by Ecocorp in Dec 22. Our latest bill in Feb was over 400 euro. After a significant amount of arguing with the staff of Ecocorp, a couple of trips to Iberdrola, we eventually we're given a contact number for a translator to help us. ( this was from a friend of ours) our translator Roxanne went above and beyond being a translator to help us. We got an electrition from Iberdrola to come out and check our property to find out what was wrong. At our expense mind you, as Ecocorp did not agree to send an engineer. What transpired was, we are on phase 3 so the electricity coming to our house was enough to power 4 villas or a factory our electrician told us. We should have been on mono, which is normal power for all villas. At no time when Ecocorp came to sell us solar panels did the tell us what phase 3 power meant, despite seeing our bills. Most  of the electricity we have been gaining from solar was going straight to the electric company as we were on private instead of public. 

So, at the end of this saga, we've paid 10.000 euro to Ecocorp for panels we probably wouldn't have needed if we were on the right tariff payment for the electriction, our translator, and another 400/ 500 to have the legality of this sorted. We have 16 panels, or ornaments as I was calling them on the roof and a huge box in the hall for phase 3 that we didn't need. 

Moral of the story check, check and check again get an independent person to help. 

I cannot recommend Roxanne highly enough, she's been a godsend to us.

Electric / solar - 6 replies

Michael 71 Posted by Michael 71 in Utilities: Electric, gas and water recommendations and advice in Arboleas on Mon Mar 6, 2023 3:41pm


We had solar installed early December, our bills are still very high the last one being 400 euro. Has any one else had this occur? I plan to speak to the solar company as I'm quiet sure this has to be wrong, I'm sure bills have to drop as otherwise solar is not a good option. 

I'm just curious as to whether anyone else has had problems like this. 

By the way I've an app on my phone that shows we are drawing power from the panels all day until its dark then drawing from the grid. 

Thank you Michael
