Hi, My dilemma is this , I live in a privately rented house but the bills are in my name, so the landlord has no problem with me changing the meter at the moment it is on Ecotricity prepay,
I am paying roughly £20 for gas and £15 per week on elec, but a lot of the shops around my area are having problems with their prepay machines, the other week I tried 4 different shops and all said their terminals weren't working in the end I has to walk a 4 mile round trip and the house was nearly out of electricity when I returned home .
So what I want to do is change to the cheapest tariff and have a monthly or quarterly bill on DD,
I phoned Ecotricity yesterday and they said I can change to a credit meter free of charge for both of them, but want I want to know would it be cheaper and better to just go on a quarterly bill as Ecotricity said their prepay is the same tariff as the credit meters, I just want to get my bills down as I am paying nearly £1300 a year.
Also if they take their prepay meters away will they have to install new meters that are non credit meters to go on a DD bill tariff?
Regards and many thanks for taking the time to read and respond to my message.
