Business always pays a lot more than domestic, as in everything, rates, utility bills. etc

Just be very very aware, the point I am making and the responses I am getting are overwhelming that gas and electricity bills are being overcharged.

Strange, nobody being billed by Southern Electric or British Gas appear at this stage to have had a problem, they all seem to be from "other party suppliers"

It does'nt take a rocket scientist to work out if these corporates are accidentally overcharging people by a little as £20 per premise, there is the potential of millions of pounds sitting in their accounts gathering interest, all at our expense.

I just wonder how many people are just paying their bill without thinking. Maybe it looks about right so that will do attitude.
Mine was only highlighted because of the farcical amount overcharged.

Just a thought, I will keep you updated.

in repsonse to rob C, do you get both gas and ellecy from powergen ?- if so you are supposed to get a discounted unit cost for energy- also depending on the scheme you are signed up for then you may get two bands for elleccy use,

 

 we get our electricity charged in 2 bands, i suppose peak and off peak, ie day and night.....

 

this is charged at 2 differing unit costs.........

 

 so as garry says check your bill,

it sounds like a meter reading error is  often to blame !

the worrying thing is  if you dont or cant pay a huge over estimated bill before you know it you get a poor credit reference against your name and potentially problems arrising from that,- not fair if its powergens mistake.......

 

 how many millions of quid are paid in error to powergen and other companies as a result of incorrect bills ???

 

 the mind boggles....

 

 as is ay as soon as i can switch my supplier i will, powergens 'lock in' terms are nearly coming to an end !

need a stella and i need one now !
