Electricty Meter Locks

A Vecinos member has been fined by Iberdrola the sum of €6.400.00 This is not for units he used, but because his electricity meter box had been opened and the electricity used by others. Attempts to convince Iberdrola the electricity was used illegally were unsuccessful and the money is to be paid by the member or the electricity meter will be removed. It is suggested that residents fit an Iberdrola Padlock' to their meter box. The padlock can be purchased from any ferretaria and Iberdrola have a master key for that lock. Fitting the lock could prevent illegal use of electricity by a third party and avoid a very large fine.
