Does anyone know how to set up and ENEL account using a UK mobile number? Due to Covid I have not been able to travel to Italy. I always pay my electricity Bill in the Italian Post office based upon my own calculation.

I normally travel to Italy to my apartments everal times per year and pay my water and electricity in advance at the post office. But due to family illness I am not able to get to Italy for a while but wish to pay the bills.

Hello Steve

This is a very interesting idea.

I am looking into this to see if it will be a solution.

BTW I know Monkseaton very well as my wife is from this area we often walk along the coast.

Sorry to hear this Alan.

I hope there is a solution for you.

Does the Bank offer any advice on what to do in this scenario.

Hello alan.

Thank you for your response.

I was thinking of doing this but and have a builder friend who may be able to help.

Interestingly the property was damaged in storm Alex in October. Apparently a bit from a rescue helicoptor may have fallen off and damaged the roof. It caused damage to other properties as well. I was sent some photographs by the builder and could see that the light was on so some good!!. I'm now trying to get an insurance claim going so will post another question for information.

Hello modicasa

I am with Energia.

I pay online using the IBAN number I obtained from their website. I have to calculate the bill and pay more so I am always ahead with a safety margin. But I have never received a bill or any communication over the last 5 years.

I tried setting up an Italian Bank account two years ago but the Banks I contacted told me they saw the Uk as a third party country and did not have a procedure in place for me to start the account. So not very helpful.

Thank you very much.
