The deployment of the Smart grid implies the instalation of smart meters.
These new meters will allow users to access flexible rates when available, and enable personal energy consumption management functionalities. On the other hand, electricity suppliers will have information that will allow them to find a faster solution to any problem or critical situation encountered and billing will always be done according to real readings.
Users can ac ces to information about their comsumption data in the Iberdrola Distribución web site. → Link
A smart energy distribution leads to a more dynamic and effective relationship between the network and its users, a higher quality of energy supply and a better capability to solve any problem and makes the network ready for the integration of renewable energies and electric vehicles.
