British Gas Vs. Scottish Power!

Post by Jamjar » Fri Oct 26, 2012 8:49 pm

Well, with yet another impossible price hike by British Gas we've allowed ourselves to be nabbed by Scottish Power! Let's hope that they are better than the British (Gas, lol)

British Gas see fit in charging us £100 per month JUST for electric alone and so we've had enough! :angry:

We'll see what happens, watch this space folks, no, not that space, THIS space! :thumbup:

Well, after almost a year with Scottishpower, they've managed to do the dirty on us and gone back on their word, just like all the other utility companies. They promised us a price freeze for 18 months, where we'd pay just over £60 per month for electricity now that's gone up to £70 per month. As we have solid fuel for our heating, we use far less electric in the winter than we do in the summer as we have to heat our water by an electric immersion heater (like a huge kettle element in an enclosed tank of water) when our solid fuel fire stays out most of the summer. However, after this summer, we of course used more electric so ALL companies put our prices up, but never bring them down again and that's the bug bear. They'd rather we continue to over pay them, where as at the end of a year, they can say, oh look, you have over £100+ in credit in your account, you can claim it back, just give us 3 months to find some-one who can write and then we'll send you a cheque!!! Meanwhile, they make millions of £s on the interest on customers money! :gr: Then we wonder why these utility fat cat bosses give themselves millions in bonuses EVERY year!!!

The price freeze was loosely explained, to my understanding, to keep our bill at approx. £60 per month and as usual, we were lied to yet again and the bad thing is, all Utility companies are the same! Pay by direct debit and you'll save money (until we put it up that is!)!!! Bah! What's the point of using another company, they all force Direct Debit (where they can take out whatever!) on to people and they don't like Standing Order (where the customer controls how much companies can have), so we're going to cancel our Direct Debit with our Bank and force a Standing Order with Scottishpower!

Watch THIS space to see how things go! :rolleyes:
