Hello there…just a caveat to the story going round about refunds from energy suppliers…the wording was…"if you had a smart meter and used power at off peak times, on stated days, you would receive a refund(approx £100)…I had a smart meter installed, I have now been told, it has to be a dual charge meter…I assume they mean gas aswell, but this wasn’t and isn’t indicated on adverts for the off peak timed usage. If I dont get any joy from Eon…the smart meter, will be at the front door waiting to be collected…absolute swizz…ggggrrrr
First real run of cold weather in the UK, and it is going to be a two-way test. Power markets need to see the price spike to achieve balance against what is likely quite limited peak supply. But that is going to push a lot of households already struggling with energy costs.
