Default Purchase of finca with ruin

We plan to buy a small finca with legalized small casa in ruin.

In the coming years we are only interested in the land for gardening and we need electricity for the waterpump.
Can we put the electricity in our name with Iberdrola after we buy? Or do we need a cedula ........ impossible of course with a ruin.

Thanks

A generator and batteries or solars panel with batteries. Have to watch for thieves out in the sticks though.

There is already electricity in place, but the casa needs a rebuild.
The pump is used on a daily basis by the neighbour.

Where does the water being pumped come from?


if it is from a bore hole that hasn’t got permission, the electricity companies covering our area( Andalucia) used to decline electricity as a requirement by Hidrographia to control unlicensed wells. They way round it is to put in solar panels and a control box. Quite-cost effective.

When we came to Alicante Province in the mid 1980´s,we had an old finca as our home with our business.generator for power & a water deposito.The water was delivered by a lorry & cheap as we needed that for our business but we had solar panels installed on a large flat roof area by a German/Swiss company At that time solar power was quite unusual(pre-EU entry for Spain) & we did have to watch closely for running things like a fridge,TV etc. & doing the ironing at odd times.It was expensive but a great investment as in southern Europe we had such long spells of course of sunshine & solar power depends on the amount of "light" rather than "heat".Therefore it is essential that you employ a company that will assess the correct positioning of the panels.to get maximum benefit rather than the cosmetic aspect.It is obviously a long term investment which may not suit your plans .Things have improved greatly since then & may be worthwhile investigating,after all it´s free from then on & you can always keep a generator on site as a backup which,I imagine,is your electricity source at present .

My water pump is powered by a petrol engine, most efficient for the gardens.
