Gas Prices Going Up, Electricity Meters

Recommended Posts

I've just had my electricity bill. It's based on an estimated reading and it's 20% cheaper than it should be. It strikes me that if they put the prices up and take an actual reading, then I'll pay for the 20% at the new, higher rate, and therefore I ought to phone in the actual reading and pay it now.

The logical extension is that if I read the meter after a few beers, and get a digit wrong so that I pay 30% too much, then I get this 30% at the current, cheap, rates.

Am I missing something?

Under-estimating bills before a price rise does seem to happen a lot <_< (check out the utilities forums on moneysavingexpert.com).

Defo give them a correct reading so they can't over charge you... Your call on overcharging yourself...
