I have an ELECTRICITY ONLY plan
I have a huge problem with my bills and scottish power doesnt want to help me
So basically, i moved on my actuall flat 5 months ago.
After updating the meter reader (the first month) I was asked to pay 99£ (for about 18 days)
So I contacted them, they told me to keep updating my Meter Reader and they will contact me back to see if anything is wrong.
Now i'm on the 5th month and 710£ in debt !! Still no answer from them.
You have to understand that i'm ALONE, in a STUDIO flat:
2 Heat (I use only one, and only at night) 1 oven (never use) no TV and LED lights with low consumption.
This is ridiculous, i'm paying more than a familly on a 6 bedroom house ??
Can someone help me? Do you think it's too much or not?
How much are you paying and how many person are in your home ?
Hi, that does not sound right, my house electricity costs about £300 a year, all the heating is by gas. Your meter readings tell you how many kWh units you have used. Check the latest reading and take away the first reading. For a small flat for 5 months it should be in the range of 500 or less. This will tell you if your meter readings are right. It might be you are sending them wrong numbers?
Hi babugo, another thought, when you read a meter you should not include any numbers in red or after a decimal point at the end. So 1234.567 is entered as 1234. Also you need to use all the spaces on line, so if there are 5 boxes you should enter 01234. Maybe you know this but it can lead to sending in a wrong reading.
I have no idea if this is "normal" or not to pay such amount. Maybe i'm just worried for nothing beacuse i keep comparing to France and looking on other websites. I just dont understand how can I pay such amount whil i see people paying 40£ or 50£ per month
