  1. Greetings Jase, the easiest way to get rid of DCA'S is tell them the account is in dispute. You should always take readings of your meters at least once a month, I tend to a reading on the 2nd of every calendar month, then I work out exactly how much that energy cost. You could take a meter reading today and another around the same time tomorrow, then subtract yesterdays reading from today gives you your usage then multiply that by 31 this gives an estimate of a 31 day month, and do the same for all fuels. You could switch energy provider, however it will cost you £30 per fuel and Flow Energy may block your request if you are £500+ in arrears. New energy provider: Peoples Energy; Fixed 1 year 2Months Up front ; ; 18 Apr 19 - 18 Apr 20 Direct Debit £100 in advance ; usage £97.10 Gas = £0.031639965 per kWh, Standing charge £0.2226 per day, 13000 kWh per year = £517.20 (£43.10 per month). Electricity = £0.13398 per kWh, Standing charge £0.2226 per day, 4000 kWh per year = £648.03 (£54 00 per month). £155 (G £91 E £64) Worst case scenario 31 day Winter Gas usage 2500kWh x £0.031639965 = £79.0999125 + £6.9006 = £86.0005125 + 5% = £4.300025625 == £90.30 31 day Winter Electricity usage 400kWh x £0.13398 = £53.592 + £6.9006 = £60.4926 + 5% = £2.91703 == £63.52 Old Energy provider Bulb Energy Variable ; ; 02 Oct 18 - 17 Apr 19 Direct Debit £120 in advance ; usage £101.58 Gas = £0.0366 per kWh, Standing charge £0.2339 per day, 13000 kWh per year = £589.23 (£49.10 per month). Electricity = £0.1286 per kWh, Standing charge £0.2339 per day, 4000 kWh per year = £629.76 (£52 48 per month). £166 (G £104 E £62) Worst case scenario 31 day Winter Gas usage 2500kWh x £0.0366 = £91.50 + £7.2509 = £98.7509 + 5% = £4.937545 == £103.69 31 day Winter Electricity usage 400kWh x £0.1286 = £51.44 + £7.2509 = £58.6909 + 5% = £2.934545 == £61.63 Bulb estimates my Electricity 440 - 560 a month, yet to date I have only ever consumed 344 kWh in any 31 day month. Bulb estimates my Gas within 20 units plus or minus of actual usage. Even although I issue my monthly readings, Bulb still prefers to use their own estimates over my actual usage! Bulb will send an email stating "you are all set, we will get the next reading in 3 months time" then they will apply their estimates each calandar month. At the moment I am in arrears with both fuels, paying £120 per calendar month, but using £140 in a 4 bed semi-detatched house! My last years usage : Gas is in kWh Gas 13269 kWh, Electricity = 3791 kWh Winter: December, G 2092, E 344 January, G 2013 E 344 February G 1507 E 273. Spring: March G 2193 E 339, April G 1226 E 295 Summer: May G 326 E 340, June G 236, E 296 ,July G 438, E 336, August G 236, E 306, September G 281, E 317. Autumn : October G 1248, E 300, November, G 1473 E 301.
  2. Greetings Jase, do you know if the plan was fixed or variable? If it is fixed they cannot change it mid-term! Debt Collection Agencies usually send's you a threat-o-grams, full of words like "If you don't pay us we may visit your property, we could get you Arrested, you might loose your possetions", DCA's have less powers than your next door neighbor.
  3. Greetings Jase, at those prices you must have been sheepish, because Flow Energy were fleecing you! Iresa Energy; V4; 02 May 17 - 02 May 18; Direct Debit in advance £80; usage £77.75 Gas = £0.02642 per kwh, Standing charge £0.1696 per day 12500 kwh per year = £411.76 (£34.31 per month). Electric = £0.108 per kwh, Standing charge £0.1766 per day 4000 kwh per year = £521.28 (£43.44 per month). Iresa Energy; V5; 02 May 18 - 02 Aug 18; Direct Debit £80 in advance ; usage £81.07 ( Ofgem Rules no DD changes) Gas = £0.028 per kwh, Standing charge £0.1696 per day, 89 kwh per quarter = £29.97 (£9.99 per month). Electricity = £0.1142 per kwh, Standing charge £0.1766 per day, 972 kwh per quarter = £117.11 (£39.04 per month).
  4. Greetings RMW I too recently had ESA WCA and went from Support group with SDP to 0 points in all categories and Fit To Work. I have been Mentally handicapped since birth, had physical disabilties since 1995 and I am now an alcoholic too. Apparently the Decision Maker stated that they tried to phone me on Saturday 02 Mar 19, but failed to get an answer. Wednesday 06 Mar 19 I received benefit failure letter with ESA65 report, I checked 1471 and the last person that phoned was number withheld Thursday 28 Feb 19 at 08:45AM, also there was a line that "Mr ASI, she walked 5 miles to see her GP". 07 Mar 19 Letter for ESA85 medical report sent. 08 Mar 19 Sickline sent up to 31 May 19. 22 Mar 19 MR Reqested! 25 Mar 19 Support letter sent. 26 Mar 19 More support letters sent. I also request the following reports: LT54 2019, ESA85 2019 (Already asked for it 07 Mar 19 in a Letter), ESA113 2019, ESA65B 2019 LT54 2015, ESA85 2015, ESA113 2015, ESA65B 2015, Plus any additional 3rd party information provided in 2015! As far as I am aware the Decision Maker only used my ESA50 2018 and ESA85 2019 the work of fiction to come to a decision that I am fit to work!
  5. Greetings I too am an ex-Iresa customer, fortuately for me the transfer to Octopus Energy went without issue, however my Direct Debit is to Iresa is still active and was paid on 10th of the month, the extra Direct Debit to Octopus Energy on 20 August never happened, and finally after the switch was completed to Octopus Energy they said that my Iresa acount was shut-down, when in fact my Iresa on-line account is still active, even today. Why don't you log-in to your Iresa Energy online account and grab the data!
  6. Ofgem Investigation into Iresa Limited has now concluded on the 27th of Jully 2018 with Ofgem shutting down Iresa Limited. Iresa Limited will be ceasing to trade. Ofgem, the energy regulator, is appointing a new supplier for its customers. Customers need not worry, their supplies are secure and credit balances are protected. Ofgem's advice is not to switch, but to sit tight and wait until the new supplier has been appointed. This will help make sure that the process of handing customers over to a new supplier, and honouring credit balances, is as hassle free for customers as possible. Customers can find support and advice from Ofgem: https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/consumers/household-gas-and-electricity-guide/extra-help-energy-services/ofgem-safety-net-if-your-energy-supplier-goes-out-business Or alternatively if they need additional support they can call Citizens Advice on 03454 04 05 06 or email them via the webform, or get in touch through Ofgem�s facebook or twitter feed @ofgem https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/consumers/household-gas-and-electricity-guide/extra-help-energy-services/ofgem-safety-net-if-your-energy-supplier-goes-out-business What happens next?

  7. Greetings how did the account get to defaulted in just three days after the account was created?
  8. Firstly your winfall does not take effect on your current Income Related benefits until you have had it for six months.
  9. Carl2017 It should be relatively simple to do a debit card Chargeback, however some banks are totally clueless of what a debit card Chargeback is! http://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/advice/how-do-i-use-chargeback According to their fillings they have only been trading under Gas Superstore limited for 20 years (10 Mar 1997), but could have been a sole trader prior to that date. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/03330542
  10. Carl2017 firstly sorry, but it sounds as if it is personal, what have you lost?
  11. Greetings Ladies and Gents how often should Landis and Gyr 5235A / Ampy Automation 5235A Electric meter be replaced? The meter is the cheapest no frills anti-reverse digital electric meter they cost around £20 when they were introduced. I read somewhere ??? that it should be replaced every 10 years, however when I spoke to my current energy provider they said 2031 (25 years), that Centrica note above the meter was the provider when the meter was installed.

  12. Hi nacid, have you asked for the meter to be independently inspected? If not why not? I would expect by now the meter will not be available for inspection and most likely been destroyed within 3 months of removal! What type of gas meter are we discussing; metric or imperial? Meter readers are just that meter readers, if they see damage all they should do is call for a meter engineer to inspect the meter, they should only be a maximum of 30 seconds in the property, I would suspect the meter reader that stayed 10 minutes probally caused the damage themself!
  13. I am not 100% sure, but it is an equally possible outcome.
  14. No doubt you've scored zero points due to the blatant omissions within the HCP's report!
