Around 70% of home energy customers pay for their electricity and/or gas bills via direct debit. When paying via direct debit the energy supplier typically bills on an estimate which leads over or under charging. Typically customers go into credit during the summer months due to the reduction in home energy consumption but this should level out as the winter months kick in. Energy companies try to smooth the bill payments which change in line with the season but working with estimates can be difficult. One of the first things you should do to see if you are overpaying on your energy bills is to start giving your actual meter readings to the energy supplier. This will allow you to accurately see how much you are over or under paying every month. If you find yourself overpaying by a large amount during the spring period, you should politely ask your […]

To some surprise, EDF energy is not increasing prices on their gas tariffs but electricity tariffs have gone up by 2.7%. According to EDF energy the price increase will hit a massive 41% of their customer base who by being on the Standard Variable Tariff (SVT) are already on the most expensive tariff on offer. What has EDF Energy increased prices? According to EDF Energy’s, Managing Director of Customers, Beatrice Bigois, the increase is due to the jump in wholesale energy prices and government policy charges. The company claim to have tried to offset the increase in costs by cutting costs from within the company; however this is not enough to offset the full cost increase on their end. She continued to state, “We will be writing to affected customers this month to encourage them to choose a fixed price tariff or to pay by direct debit to save on […]

Scottish power has announced an increase of 5.5% which will affect 960,000 (33%) of its customers. Luckily those on fixed rate deals and prepayment meters will not be affected. The majority of Scottish Power customers pay by direct debit, which is the cheapest way to pay for you bills. However for those who are on the standard variable tariff (SVT) and not paying by direct debit, the average price increase is actually 6.9% Why has Scottish Power increased prices? According to Scottish Power’s Chief Executive Office, Neil Clitheroe, the increase is due to “rising wholesale energy costs and compulsory non-energy costs” The company will also be “contacting all customers affected by the price change to give them the opportunity to move to a fixed price tariff alternative and avoid this increase.” How can I get around the price hike? Regardless of which energy supplier you are with, the standard variable […]
