I was wondering if anyone has any advice on high electric bills. I switched to bulb thinking it was maybe Scottish power that were charging really high however my electric seems astronomical. We had a new meter installed earlier this year and since then my bill seems exceptional for the size of house we have. We have a small 3 bedroom cottage. Usual appliances, our cooker is gas and so is our heating. We are getting told we have used £149.00 of electricity since the 22nd October till yesterday, our gas is much lower. Anyway I can check if the meter is working properly.
