Please note that failing to return or returning incomplete documentation, or the inability to contact you in any of the above methods, will prohibit us from activating the supply.
The activation times are set by the Authority for Electricity, Gas and the Water System (ARERA) and prescribe:
- 5 working days from our request to the Distributor for Electricity Supplies
- 10 working days from our request to the Distributor for Gas Supplies
The activation request is sent to the Distributor with territorial jurisdiction only after we have received all the properly completed forms.
You will be contacted by a consultant for the Take over of a gas supply in order to schedule an appointment with a technician that has been appointed by the area Distributor for the supply's activation.
Caution! The local distributor varies according to the geographic area and is a company other than Enel Energia.
It is possible to modify the power level of your meter according to your needs during the take over.
You can ask for modifications of 0.5 kW for power up to 6 kW (Ex. 0.5 - 1.5 - 2.0 - 3.5 - etc.) or modifications of 1 kW for power from 6 to 10 kW (Ex. 7 – 8 – 9 – 10).
If you request a power modification during the Take over, a quote will be issued that will indicate the costs and activation times. It is also possible to modify the power level at a later stage.
