  1. I moved from Economy Energy just over a month ago , and was expecting a rebate of around £250, I know it is protected and secure , but how long should I expect to wait for my money to be refunded now they have ceased trading
  2. We are on pay as you go both gas and electric and until the meters packed up electric on 31st Dec and then the gas on monday. everything was ok. the electric meter packing up left us with no electric at all and because EE were having their break they thought it would be a good idea not to have an emergency number.. I ended up speaking to SSE who came out 30 mins later to check the power into the house as they said just in case its a fault their side. it wasn't, it was a faulty meter, SSE electrician got authority to bypass meter. we then spent from 2nd jan to Tuesday
  3. Are they represented on this forum ? Web site rubbish , unable to message , unable to alter DD payment date after they have altered it for the second time . they ignore posted meter readings and phone for readings to be taken there and then , bit difficult when you are driving ! Not had a proper bill since I signed up last year , not had an update as what options are with them now a year has almost passed . Think I will be moving on
  4. Incredibly, EDF don't say exactly what 7 hours constitute the "low" metering period! It apparently varies by region and possibly changes depending on the time of the year. I can phone them and they will tell me what times apply to me, but their computer doesn't seem able to look this up for me when I log into my online account. It seems to me that I can hardly schedule my usage properly if I don't know when the cheap time is! How do they get away with this kind of thing? Haven't they got a duty to make that information easily available (and a duty

  6. Hello folk, I called my electricity supplier (extra energy) to tell them I wanted to go onto an economy 7/10 tariff, they told me that they can't do it because it meant replacing my meter Am I being lead down the garden path?
  7. Very interesting article for those who follow world economics. http://www.smh.com.au/business/china/chinas-real-estate-credit-and-investment-bubble-risks-global-recession-20150717-giebmc Some of the statistics quoted are alarming. Perhaps the Chinese economy is not as strong as some believe and their conversion to capitalist economics will end up in a bust. If there is a sudden market failure in China, then it will affect everyone.
  8. I do find some intersting info online about the state of world finances and it does makes you wonder what is going on exactly. The Chinese will apparently release details in the next week or so revealing exactly how much Gold they have in their reserves. There is speculation that the US government have been selling huge amounts of Gold to them, presumably as some sort of back up to selling a lot of their debt to them. It is quite possible that the US will not stand in the way of the Chinese currency becoming another reserve currency. If this is true, why has the US government/treasur
  9. British Airways is to make radical changes to its airmiles scheme used by millions of travellers - called Avios - which will slash by 75% the airmiles the cheapest economy class tickets will earn, while giving business and expense-account flyers more rewards. First-class and business-class customers benefit most from the new changes, with 'flexible' fare bookers earning 300% of the miles travelled in Avios points for first-class (up from 200%) and 250% for business-class (up from 200%). Non-flexible fares for first-class flyers also see an increase in points to 250% of the mi
  10. On 12 November Ofgem issued notice of our proposal to revoke some of the provisions of the confirmed Provisional Order against Economy Energy following improvements in compliance. Read More Here: https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/economy-energy-provisional-order
  11. Thousands of SSE customers across the UK could be in line for a refund, after the energy supplier admitted there is a fault with some of its meters. As many as 16,000 customers on its Economy 10 (E10) tariff may have been overcharged for their electricity consumption for years. SSE has now vowed to get in touch with all customers who may have been affected to check their meters. If you have the fault, SSE will repair or replace the meter and recalculate your charges to make sure you are not out of pocket. The E10 tariff provides households with ten hours of off

  13. The Labour leader has launched an attack on our "Wonga economy" saying payday lenders are "running riot through our communities". Ed Miliband accused the firms of preying upon vulnerable people then intimidating them with bullying tactics when they failed to repay the loans. He said they had created a "quiet crisis" for thousands of households saddled with debts they were unable to pay off. In a speech at Battersea Power Station, Mr Miliband said that he had visited the Citizens' Advice Bureau in his Doncaster constituency and heard the stories of a number of people who had become victim
  14. hi , I have just moved in to a property that used to be economy 7 as it was all electric and since gas has been installed ( GC heating) and gas cooker. I have spoken to my supplier EON who have said that I was still on economy 7 and that they would not change the meter to a standard and i am being charged at day time rates !!! I Don't use much during the night but i am still paying the economy 7 premium day time rate!! Tried to switch supplier to to get cheaper deal but they have me as economy 7 . Can eon do this ? why should I have to pay a premium for elec
  15. I moved into my first flat a month ago. When i moved in the supplier was E.on, so i called and registered with them and verified final readings given by the previous tenant by their instructions of how to read the meter In an attempt to save money I run a comparrison on uSwitch and picked out a new plan with EDF. Since moving in i have been taking weekly meter readins to see my average usage and approx spend. I took a reading after work today at 17.30 and noticed the number 2 reading was flashing, indicating that was the rate being used and similarly I checked again just before
