So - after the UK govt advised it was lifting its price cap bulb are jumping on the band wagon and hiking their prices again - 25% this time!
Is it possible to see a financial report on bulbs profits and other costs?
I’ve been a bulb customer for a number of years now and NEVER have my prices come down - EVER! My bills get bigger and bigger every year - despite low energy devices and other improvements made to my home.
I accept prices go up and yes this is not happening for 6 months until March 2022 but what i HATE is the cost of the energy supplied to those customers living in Scotland - a place where the vast majority of the renewable energy the UK that bulb purchases is generated. I pay significantly HIGHER Tarriffs than many parts of the UK (up to 6p a unit more) because it seems that despite living in a densily populated part of Scotland in the central belt (which is the flat bit) its “more expensive” to get it to me. no its not! The infrastructure has been here for decades!
The cost of laying cables in Scotland is no different to that of the the rest of the UK so why the price difference especially for those that live “in the flat bit”. Infrastructure costs are paid for by the energy suppliers to the companies responsible for maintaining the network and as such those costs should be evenly distributed to ALL bulb customers.
We should ALL be on the same domestic tarriff - not one thats more beneficial to some over others! How is that fair?
It’s like HS2 - I cant use it up here but I have to pay for it in my taxes so why is it so different for power?
Its generated up here - its stored up here in the MASSIVE substation up the road from me so why am I paying more???
Makes me sick. Its getting to the stage where its not much more expensive to run a low emissions high output generator off grid than it is to buy electricity from a UK energy supplier!
I really feel for those less well off families who are gonna really struggle in the new year.
Theres no point jumping ship anymore either - theyre all the same!
