    If you post this in the correct section of "Energy" rather than "LPG, Heating Oil, Solid & Other Fuels", you may find people there who can help, especially the Eon rep who frequents those pages.

    krissy - when you repost as Mister G  says.

    What has happened about your bills since February - perhaps this bill relates to the energy used in that period. Look at the bill in detail and see what the meter readings are - is the last one estimated ?
    Never pay on an estimated bill

    Please post a copy of the complete bill you have received from Eon for £322.21.
    (remove personal info first)
    Without that, we will just be guessing, but Eon bills (like every energy suppliers) are very descriptive.
    Does it, for example, mention standing charges? Because you don't appear to have included those.
    Why have you received a bill at all, if it was a pre-payment meter???

    Hi Robin, thanks for replying. The bill isn’t estimated I was on prepayment meters until the 26th of February 2020. So before this date I didn’t owe them a penny. The bill says I’ve used 247 units which is correct, that’s about £50 then there’s the standing charge so my bill should only be around £60 ish pound. They seem to be trying to charge me for electric before I had the meters installed.
    ive not been at home since lockdown I was government shielding at my friends house

    Hi Biscuit Tin, thanks for replying. 
    I was on prepayment meters but decided to swop to credit meters. They were fitted on the 26th of February 2020. Before this I’ve never owed a penny so it’s not arrears.
    I’ve read my meter and the amount I’ve used Is 247 units which is what they say I’ve used which is £47 plus standing charge but their going on about £600 saying I’ve paid £300 then a discount of £85 I’ve not got a clue what they are on about or where to turn for help. I will try to up load the bill as you’ve asked. It is a very hard thing to understand without seeing the bill. Please bear with me I’m not very good on uploading things.  But thank you so much for taking the time to try and help me
