Re: How are your utility bills looking?
I have built up a credit of over £500 which my energy supplier refuses to refund me.

Yesterday I gave my gas and electricity meter readings but added a 1000 units extra. I will pay the extra under the current rate thus saving money for future bills.
Further meter readings for both gas and electrity will read as zero until I catch up

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
Dear Energy Supplier,

Almost a year ago we received details from you about the probable large increase in gas and electricity prices. We also received details from your good selves on what measures we could take to reduce our energy costs.

As pensioners on a fixed income, we studied the best ways we could reduce our usage and started to implement your suggestions. A few months later we received an increase in our energy bill from £115 per month to £153 per month.

We continued to try hard to save energy. I can supply you details of what steps we have taken to reduce usage but you can easily check our energy usage over the past year and will see that this has been reduced by over 10% compared with the previous year. We have today received an energy bill forecast and have been told to increase our monthly payments to £273 per month.

In the interest of equity and given the fact that we have undertaken every effort to reduce our costs, I would like your company to supply me with proof that you also have taken every step to reduce your overheads so that we both know we have done what we can between us to reduce costs to the customer.

This of course includes your efforts to secure your wholesale gas and electric prices at the best possible wholesale prices. Given the size of your company, I am sure you have the buying power to negotiate the best market prices.

I look forward to receiving you reply.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
Forget my earlier question, I found what i was looking for.

It seems my payment will be credited to our electricity account but at the risk of sounding like an ungrateful cunt,it would be better if it went towards the gas.

Is this the same for all suppliers or does it vary?

I believe it gets reflected on the bill, so you would pay the net amount.

1billy, I think it's gone to your providers and they just knock it off your bill whatever you use?

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
We have a 2 year fixed rate deal with Octopus until October 2023. We were paying 208.72pm but this has now been dropped down to 161.04pm, and is still oversubscribed.
The balance as of 1/10/2022 is over £500, despite us taking over £200 back on two occasions in the last six months.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
We pay our gas bill quarterly and electric monthly,both on line with a debit card.
Anyone know how the 'rebate' will be paid to people using this method of payment?
We're with British Gas and cant find an answer on their website.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
Our monthly bills were saying we were using 20KwH a day, and given there's only two of us in the house that seemed mentally high. Bill was going to be about £500 a month.

Speaking to a sparkie he said that the biggest culprit he finds are plug sockets with USB ports built into them. Decent branded ones, like Schneider, are fine, but I had two unbranded Chinese ones I got from B&Q. Replaced them and went down to 16KwH a day. Fucking things had been leeching electricity like no-ones business.

So keep that in mind if you have any of them

Also adding smart plugs/smart strips for things that sit in standby for most of the time has dropped me down to 12KwH a day now, so well worth it

No, the £67 is staying in my bank account not theirs. I'll turn the heating off in April. Sorted.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
Mine have gone down.
Combined Gas and Electric was about £90 a month. I paid £74 this month

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
Of course it will have - it's the amount of the govt grant for 6 months only though. If you can, leave the DD at the old amount.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
My bill has gone down by £67! C&P the relevant part of the email I received yesterday:

This is £67.00 less per property than usual, to pass on the discount of the Energy Bill Support Scheme. From October, you'll receive a monthly discount on your account of £66 (rising to £67 from December to March) from the Government.

We're required to reduce your monthly payments as part of the scheme — but should you prefer to use the scheme to build up a buffer, simply adjust your payment back up in the next 48 hours.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
I think they are making up the figures as they go along in the hope that everyone just pays up and shuts up, then after a few years it will come to light that people have over paid thousands, getting a refund, propping up the economy for a few months, all whilst the top brass have been dining out on champagne and caviar at our expense.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
So further to 12:20 Thu Sep 29

I have moved onto monthly payment.
I was £500 in credit (I was offered a refund but said they can use that for future bills)
I have been doing daily meter reading and have worked out that I am using (incuding VAT) £130 a month

I received my Bill today that reflects the above amount.
So why the fuck were they charging me £350 a month on DD gong up to £450?? when i am only consuming £130? Therr forecasts are bollocks and even in the context of winter where consumption can go up if you so choose but paying monthly to me seems to be the way forward.


I dont have a smart meter but i also have night and day rate electricity. So starting to run the washing machine and dishwasher in the middle of the night as its 2.5 times cheaper.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
Cheers Westside.

Funnily enough, when you click on the refund page on their website it says ‘page not found’.

I bet.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
Is there any danger of him getting that money back or does he just have to wait until he ‘uses’ it up?

Goose - you have to apply to the energy company for a refund.

When Bulb went into administration (my supplier), I was concerned they might go bust and I'd lose my credit balance. I applied for a refund but they declined. So I stooped my direct debit, to claw back the surplus. They threatened all sorts of dire consequences (admin fees etc), but nothing happened and I re started my direct debit, when I'd recouped the credit balance.

Energy companies don't have to give you a refund, but they must state their reasons, if they don't.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
My father-in-law is something like £600 in credit.

Re: How are your utility bills looking?
I was paying £160 a month last year
Gone up to £331 and suggesting i pay £450

Phoned British Gas had a spastic as to how this is even remotely possible? My neighbour is paying £170pm.
So Moved to paying monthly DD for what i use rather than on their forecast.
Will be taking daily readings. Thieving bastards
