Well i just received my latest bill from Manweb/scottish power, and apart from it saying my account is in credit, they wanted to put my monthly payments up to 63 from 53, which was ott anway but i left it due to winter to build up credit. After i'd calmed down i did some price comparisons and found that for me British Gas where the cheapest.... My bill is now down to 32 a month and on top of that i'll get dualfuel discount and paperfree billing discount and discount for swappig to them.... my advice is, if you havent done it yet, check and compare prices for the best deal.... www.uswitch.com or even the gmtv website can help.

Be aware?

I don't think its a British gas thing, but ive heard of these pit falls?

1) You can join xx company and they Hold Down your bill for the first 12 months, then bring it back in line after that, so you experience a huge increase.

2) When they calculate this years, taking into account price rises etc.. You can see a typical 20 per month increase, because say year before last year you probably were in credit and your monthly bill was lower than normal.

2006 = 26 (Higher as you're payments didn't reach the Annual Bill 2005)
2007 = 22 (low as you were in credit)
2008 = 42 (No Longer in Credit, Fuel Prices Have Gone Up)

If you look at the Year Totals for your Bill you can see
how your under one year and over the next but never on the money.
That's why we feel it so bad after a in credit year.

What was the site you used for your comparisons Jonah ?

Ay dats not too bad... last time Manweb came to read my token meter, they increased the charge. Bear in mind am singlke, living in a flat, and my price is around 35 a month for electric atm.

So for a family, 68 wasnt too bad in all honesty. Although I do believe I am on a much higher tariff then I should be with Manweb; used to put about 5 in every 8 days, now its more then 5 every 5 since they last red the meter (late 2006) and I was never in debt on the old tariff, in fact they owed me 90 in the end.

Must phone up and give them a reading, might be in credit.

Heh... got a bill through today from 27th March 07 to 28th Feb 08...

It said I had gone from 2560 units to 5888 units as an estimate, and that I owed them 87.89. I checked the meter and it only says 4013 unit's, so much much lower then their estimate, in fact they have more than double over-estimated my usage...

So I phone's them up with a reading, and I am 91.47 in credit!

I have booked an engineer to replace the meter on the morning of the 14th to a new key meter instead of the current card meter (apparently I have been due this upgrade for some time), so when he come's out, he will take the reading, and I will either go on to a lower tariff, or I can request a refund in the form of a cheque.

Needless to say... its nice to find out that after they expected me to owe them nearly 90.00, it's actually them who owe me 90.00 lol!

Oh an over the last 11 months my electricity usage has been 340.00 minues the 90.00 they owe me, so 250.00... not bad, but still, for a single person, in a single bedroom flat, who is very energy saving concious, it's quite a high amount at just under 25 a month.
