    GB Energy Price Hike

    GB Energy Price Hike 15th Jul 16 at 2:13 AM
    Received an email from GB Energy announcing they were raising their variable rate tariff by 7%

    Never really been happy with this bunch of amateurs since I discovered they want meter readings every month AND unless you give them on the last day of the month, you get an estimated bill.

    The increase takes place on 21 August - oh but you can avoid it by signing up ANOTHER 12 months onto their fixed 12 Crystal Tariff. In other words, we're holding you to ransom unless you sign up again.

    I really, really, shouldn't bother with any Energy supplier recommended by mse Energy Club. 3rd time in a row now that it's turned out to be a con - they sell it to you saying its' the 'best' low tariff and then sucker you in; then the price increases start and the Energy Club has the damn cheek to email you to tell you that you're not getting the best tariff. Evidently, irony is lost on the Energy Club.

    GB Price Hike
    I used moneysupermarket, and the cheapest for me was a company called IRESA. They are actually a company that you can't join through MS, so I went to them dirct.
    Interestingly, I've just realised that GB put their tariff up in August by about 7%, so that makes a total increase of almost 44% !!
