I've Just Got A Letter From Powergen

Recommended Posts

I was paying £30 per month, I have just been informed that it has been increased to £44 per month because "electricity costs have been rising, driven by increasing wholesale costs, affecting all suppliers in the industry."

Has anyone else had their bill increased recently, if so, by how much?

It's a good job inflation is only 2.3%, or I'd have to get a payrise.

was paying 16 - was told last week my real consumption if £46 a month - they suggested I pay £40 a month and see how I go.

16 may have been too low (based on an estimate) but it's still gone up a lot.

i only live in a 1 bed and I'm hardly here (work all day with a long commute)

I'm in a 1 bed too, also at work all day. I thought £30 was a bit steep, but this is silly.

£16 to £40 per month beats me though, +150%  :o

Blimey,

We just got our bill, we pay quarterly Grand total.

Yes, you're right, we're all lucky inflation is only 2.3%.

Otherwise you'd run out there and demand a pay rise, the Pound would start to fall, the country would begin to import inflation, and Gordie's mates would have to crank up interest rates.

As usually happens at this stage of the economic cycle.

Shew, lucky that isn't happening.

Oh, actually, now that I come to think of it.... :unsure:

I'd recommend ecotricty, they not only invest in contruction of new renewable sources (unlike most other eco providers tarrifs who just buy in from existing renewable sources), they also have a guaranteed subsidy they can buy and sell at backed by legislation (to support increased renewable usage) but my bill for a one bed flat is only about £28 pm. It's quiite a big one bed, we have gas for cooking and use energy saving light bulbs. But i do run a big TV most evenings and 1 PC 24/7.
