In our last article we did explain about the new law on photovoltaic panels which was approved on the October the 18th, in the Spanish Parliament.

This new scenario, together with the increase in the electricity bill and the publication of the last Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, will encourage, I am sure, many citizens and...
Have you ever felt that you are taking on all the Spanish electric companies alone?

One way of saving is to switch off all those appliances which we have on standby.
