    High Energy Bills

    High Energy Bills 2nd Jan 18 at 4:50 PM
    Hi, my in-laws (pensioners) living alone are paying nearly 8000 GBP a year for their electricity. It is the only source of energy going into the house but seems outrageously high to me. I'm living in France so have nothing to compare it to.
    Scottish Power came out to look and the representative said that it looked like they had the meters mixed up but nothing happened after the visit. They are on direct debit but when I look at the bill and payment information on their Scottish Power account they are not consistent with the amount they are billing and taking out of their account.
    My in-laws are in their mid 80's and this is becoming very stressful for them. Any advice?
    They have already paid over 4500GBP and there is now a demand for over 3000GBP for 2017.

    You have schools that will pay around 8,000 per year in energy bills.

    And you do have a source to compare it to. Your own. Energy is a bit cheaper than the costs in France and I assume that they are spending more than you....

    Never pay on an estimated bill
