Pensioners who are struggling to pay their electricity bills will not have their power cut off after a deal was struck between power company Iberdrola and a senior citizens lobby group. An agreement with the Democratic Union of Pensioners and Retirees (UPD) says that customers who are struggling should get a report produced by them which confirms they are not earning enough to pay their bills.

Face-to-face consultations and advice on fuel-saving and bill restructuring will also be offered to pensioners, even if they are able to pay, but finding it a struggle to make ends meet. The UPD, a non-profit association, also offers financial help for retirees with severe money troubles.
