Using energy in the best way ignites new savings opportunities

The energy crisis we are experiencing requires each of us to implement virtuous behaviors for energy saving, in order to mitigate its effects and counter the increase in energy costs.

In this context, Enel Energia wants to do its part with an initiative that is good for everyone, including the environment.

There are several actions that can be done to do this and they do not require excessive efforts or sacrifices.

What are the best ways to save energy?

Few simple, but effective rules:

  • Choose an energy efficient lighting system;
  • Turn off the devices and don't leave them in stand-by;
  • Adjust the room temperature without excess;
  • Regularly carry out system maintenance and/or an energy diagnosis to identify any waste;
  • Activate the consumption monitoring of your equipment to identify the less efficient ones and replace them;
  • Choose to self-produce sustainable energy by installing a photovoltaic system;
  • Consider investments to facilitate the energy transition: power quality1, installation of heat pumps, electric mobility;
  • Actively participate in the energy communities;
  • Join on demand response2 programs for an efficient use of energy resources.

In addition, EssenzialMente3 was born, an initiative that helps you save on your bill and can make you earn a small bonus if you consume less.

How to join the initiative?

You don't have to sign anything or sign up for loyalty programs, and you don't even have to go anywhere.

How does the bonus work?

For supplies with committed power up to 50 kW, you'll receive directly on your bill a 0,10 € bonus for each kWh saved during the month of October, November and Dicember 2022 compared to the kWh used during the same months in 2021.

The bonus will be recognized to you: 

  • by the second useful bill of 2023 or, in case of withdrawal and/or transfer, with the closing bill;
  • in the months in which the average value of the single national price (PUN) will be higher than 400 € per MWh. The PUN is the wholesale reference price of electricity that is purchased on the market of the Italian Power Exchange and its trend is always available on the website of the  Gestore Mercati Energetici (GME) in the summary data;
  • in the presence of real consumption data (not estimated). If you have signed a contract with Enel Energia for less than 12 months, the consumption data are compared with the historical data of your POD (identification code of the supply point), if available in the Integrated Information System;
  • for supplies that will be active as of 31.12.2022 with fixed price offers. In the event of withdrawal, transfer or transition to free market offers with regulated price structure and contractual conditions (for example: PLACET) during the period of the initiative, the bonus will be recognized only for the months for which a reduction in the consumption before the completion of the above operations which will lead to exclusion from the initiative in question.

You can consult the consumption history on your bills available in your Customer Area on and, starting from mid-November 2022, you can check if you are saving.



1. Products to ensure continuity and quality of supply in order to minimize faults on electrical equipment and make maintenance more efficient.

2. Programs that incentivize the reduction of energy consumption in response to critical events for the grid and / or the electricity market, such as peaks in electricity demand or cost spikes of the energy component.

3. Supplies excluded from the initiative:
- For which only estimated consumptions are available in the period September-December 2021;
- With indexed price offers;
- With free market offers with price structure and regulated contractual conditions (by way of example but not limited to Placet offers);
- With arrears at the time of the launch of the initiative;
- For which a takeover or first activation was carried out from 2 October 2021.
