Is it just me or do the Power companies set your monthly payments too low when you switch suppliers or move house and then let you run up a huge bill which ties you into them till you have paid off the balance.
We moved in to our house in October last year - in November we switched to E-on who told us our payments would be £65 a month.
After a few months we found out they had totally under estimated our reading at our old house and we now owed them over £1000. We were then told that our payment should have been £80 per month. With the money owed for our old property we now had to pay £140 per month
we then found out they had under estimated our readings in the new property too and their current estimate is £159 per month (double what we were originally asked to pay. So with the money owed from the previous property and the money owed from this one they want us to pay £235 per month (and that is after they waived almost £600 of the back money.
So we have gone from £65 to £235 in just under a year - talk about inflation and we are stuck with them for at least two years - after which they'll be dumped without a doubt!!
