    Wow! I use a maximum of £40 a month in power, and my PC is on 24/7.

    Well you know what the police will think you're upto in there? :P

    we're in a new house, and we think that we're paying the bill for number 10 as well (there has been a mix-up with the meter serial numbers), but .... strangely...... the 'leccy company refuse to investigate!

    Powergen

    Avoid like the plague!

    we used to live in a massive house, with loads of electrical good, and paid £50 a month

    Now we're in a small house, with nowhere near the number of computers etc. paying £100 a month, but Powergen have decided it isn't enough.

    I know the price of 'leccy has gone up... but really! They make it next to impossible to calculate your usage as well.... it's more complicated than an advanced Linux guide written in Klingon!

    Powergen are useless, that's why I switched to Scottish Power. We never had a correct bill from Powergen and it took months to get back the money they had overcharged us.

    We had a case here in my town last year where a guy was worried about how high his electricity bills were and when it was investigated they found a gang using the house next door as a cannabis factory had entered his house through the loft and tapped into his electricity supply!

    It seems they're all as bad as each other. When I was with 'Sainsburys Energy' (aka. Scottish Power) a couple of years ago I paid monthly and then after 12 months moved house. When doing this it turned out that my account had never been opened properly and they had no record of any payments, so sent me a bill for near enough £500. After refusing to pay and threatening them with harassment laws, they dropped the entire thing.

    Strangely enough, this house is still with Scottish Power due to my never changing it over yet and I had problems with them when I first moved in, sending threatening letters to the prior occupant who owed them £290 (on a pre-payment meter??). It took months to get them to stop sending them.

    So, the moral of the story is - all electricity companies suck (well, more than likely anyway).
