Ive been with my company for gas and electric for a few years now, on card metters for both.

When i joined, i had looked on their website, and they sold both services as coming with no standing charges.


Recently, having found out a bit how to read meters properly, i discover that both actually do have standing charges.

I have screenshots of the website, which still todaqy claim no standing charges to.


Apart from the obvious complaints, is it possible to claim these back?

$And how would i go about it?

question everything!

Which company is this, please ?


I would say, if they claim there is no standing charge, then they shouldn't be identifying one on your statement and charging you. However, I will try and find someone who can advise further.

I was with Ebico a few years back when I moved into a place with key meters and there was no standing charge. I would seriously challenge this. I assume this is a key meter and if so, the key should have been updated with the new details and if not, they have some of your money which you want back

Yep it is a key meter, i have checked the meter myself, and a charge of £1.92 per week shows on the meter.

Have to go to work soon, so i will take a pic of the meter tommorow and put up, just to make sure im correct.
