Powergen

Recommended Posts

Just recieved a letter today, Gas and Electric to rise by 14pence a day as from 31/08.

14 pence times by 31 days = £4.34 a month

£4.34 times by 3 month = £13.02 a quarter

Now that is real inflation :(

Just goes to show the problems the ordinary family face in the future.

Sooner or later we will be paying our employer to work for them.

This administration has really let things slip

14 pence per day depends on how much you use. How much has the actual price for gas and electricity gone up in percentage points per unit? Did Powergen specify the actuall percentage increase or show the old and new prices in their letter? If not, shame on them for not being clear.

See my comments about British Gas and Powergen price hikes:

Appologies

On the back of the letter they do show an increase comparison in kw/h.

I did not pay much attention, as i shall change suppliers, and the letter went straight into the bin.

Anybody who recieved the same letter today will have the cost comparison, and would be able to calculate the percentage increase.

It a lot more than 2.3% :o

I don't know whether they're still doing it, but Powergen were doing a capped price deal, which might be a good move in a world of increasing fuel prices,

That fundamently won't help, the wholesale price is rising so any retail supplier is going to see the same costs. Rather than change supplier your actions should be to use less gas by the amount the the cost has increased.

got the same letter

im on a card meter and it said on the letter the surcharge for the pre payment meter will be scrapped., which will probably balance the costs out.

still they were so quick grabbing money off me i owed them, now i find there due me near 200 pounds now.

time for them to send me the cheque
