Desperately need help!! we kept getting estimated bills through from edf and then one day we got an actual bill through for £3,500!! We thought there had to be a mistake but edf said that we had used the electric up and our estimated bills hadn't been covering the cost. Now we're paying £60 a month and that's not covering the amount we use each month, and so that £3500 bill is just getting bigger! We studied our meter for over a week and we're using between 26 and 31 units a day (in a week we used up 164 units) We only have electric. 4 people live in teh house though one is away most weekends and another most evenings.We have no heating on in the house just a coal fire, we have a water immersion on for about half an hour a day, the washing machine maybe once or twice a day, the computer on for most of the day, a max of 3 five to ten min showers in a day, then there's usual fridge, tv, and freezer etc. No tumble drier, no dishwasher, no heating, we're really careful with lights and use candles all teh time! It's getting to the point where we're scared to use the shower and teh washing machine!! We thougth our meter might be faulty so we had a new one put in and we're still using teh same amount of units! Does this sound normal or is there something wrong??

Has anyone noticed British Gas orices have gone up again? Ive not saw anything on the news but noticed my bill was a LOT higher so rang them and they had a rise in Jan and Feb!!
Looking at my bill my old rates were first tier 9.791p then 2nd tier 8.291p
In Jan 1st tier went to 17.427p and 2nd tier 9.026p.
From Feb the 1st tier is now 17.850p and 2nd tier is 7.856p.
Now thats some sort of rise! What makes it more annoying is according to U Switch there isnt a cheaper provider in my area!
