I`d like to go back to a quarterly bill for actual electricity / gas used ! Am I the only person, domestic as well as business, who has loads of problem with power companies bills ? Over the last 10 or so years I have wasted many many HOURs and MUCH stress sorting out incorrect bills, and when I recently changed suppliers it got even worse. I don`t even understand the soddin` bills they send out, there`s "invoice total" and "Current balance" and being in credit and debit etc. It`s also difficult, when doing ones books, to check up amounts taken out of ones bank account against what the actual bills are because the monthly DD is supposed to be an average (which is usually wrong anyway) as opposed to the bill amount. I HATE IT ! I asked Scottish Power if I could go back to quarterly bills for actual power used but they said it`d be 20% more expensive ! How can they justify such a huge difference ? Particularly as they have to pay people to sort out all the problems their supposedly superior billing method causes…. Does anyone know a power company that offers “the old way” of billing without a huge rip off price differential ?
