26-6-2011 Canary Islands/Lanzarote (sb) – The Canarian utility company ENDESA has warned all their clients on the Canary Islands of fraudsters who are trying to sell purported electricity economisers.
The tools are sold for 50 euros per unit and are said to reduce the electricity bill between twenty and forty percent. ENDESA was made aware of the frauds by clients in Gran Canaria. The company has re-emphasised that they do not sell tools like this and that these tools are a fraud. ENDESA advises anybody who has bought such a tool to report it at the police station. Lanzarote37° bought one of these tools in 2007 from an English speaking bike rental outlet store near the harbour in Playa Blanca which sells Electro-Bikes and bicycles. When tested by an expert, the result: the tool has absolutely no effect.
