  • Oh and also, there is no standing charge... this means you pay for what you use.. some of you pay up to 30p a day with 'the big 6'. Work that out over a year. Pretty high huh?? It's a no brainer really. Economy Energy are a good company - just because they are relatively small and you've never heard of them, doesn't mean they are awful. Everyone starts somewhere - remember that!

    Welcome to the forum clevergirl498,
    I wasn't shocked when I received my key and when they took over my supply
    - and you sought out MSE on the interwibble and went trough the process of validating a membership here with posting rights [TEXT DELETED BY FORUM TEAM] do you have a business relationship with this company clevergirl498 ?

    I could be posting complete poppyco*k because I have no idea how to read a PPM for the tariff. But I am with this company after falling for their "no commitment if you don't want to go with us just don't use our key". And before I knew it I was in a contract and already using them.

    From what I can find out I *think* the tariff is 15.34 pence per kwh. Does that sound about right?

    It's absolutely fine, as long as you don't mind paying about 28% over the typical rate of 12p per kWh.[TEXT DELETED BY FORUM TEAM]

    But what do you expect from a company that builds it customer base by cold selling outside dole offices?
    clevergirl498 will doubtless have a different perspective.
    No free lunch, and no free laptop ;)
  • Not at all - I just heard from a friend that the company i was with had a lot of bad reviews, I thought I'd share my opinion. So now I have put my opinion across, just like all of you guys, I have been asked if I am a part of their company - which really isn't the case. Play fair.
  • oh, also - I think you'll find that if you search Economy Energy in google, this is the second link. So there wasn't much searching involved. But nice try.

    That all depends on how high a user you are. Just because your higher usage is unsuited to this tariff, it doesn't make it a 'total rip-of'.
  • thanks for the heads up. gosh, you guys don't take too well to newbies, do you?

    Maybe all those capitalized words in your first post antagonized some people slightly?
    We do get quite a few here just to promote their products, and Ritchie was just being vigilant. If you are indeed genuine then please stick with it and you'll find the board is reasonably poster-friendly.

    It's more the case that people don't take too kindly to blatant promotion of one particular company.

    The correct advice on this forum is both obvious and repetitive - enter your consumption details in KWh into a price comparison site. Find cheapest result. Use cashback site for switching process.

    The cheapest result is NEVER the same supplier in all scenarios (if it were we'd all be with them :rotfl:)
  • Not entirely sure how what I said, or even, how I said it may have antagonized anyone, but each to their own. I am a genuine, happy customer and I'm satisfied with their services.

    I know I've been making a huge saving by staying put with this company. Considering near enough everyone on this forum has been slating the company I thought I'd show that I am a satisfied customer.

    Oh, and, last time I checked - pre payment meters don't require you to provide your bank details for any payments. If they do ask for this information - then yes, you're probably being scammed! :T
