I have just had my first electricity bill from Bulb. It was a terrible shock. It says my average usage for 18 Feb 2020 to 22 Feb 2020 was £105.82 pence per day. Something is not right.
The opening readings are the wrong way around too. Day rate has the night rate figures and Night rate has the day rate figures.
I submitted the readings in the right slots. I took great care because of a problem with this with my previous supplier British Gas. The fields twisting round - sun and moon icons swapping places.
For years I was with British Gas paying by DD, exactly what they told me to pay, I got messages saying I was “on plan” then suddenly they said I owed them a massive sum this year. My habits have not changed. On 27 January 2020 I paid British Gas £768.13 over the phone and then I started the process of leaving them. On 10 February 2020 British Gas took £158.94 via DD which I assumed was the final payment.
But now my first BULB bill is for £529.12 and my Bulb account is suddenly £464.43 in debit.
What is going on? I am freezing cold in my all-electric flat most of the time. Too scared to use more than the absolute minimum of electricity.
