Price increase on daily charge

Daily standing charge increase on last months bill ? no prior notification of this. Thought this was a good company, perhaps they are trying to recover some of their £26000000 loss.
Any answers please.

Showing as 20.44 on my latest statement (February)as it was last year
Sure your not looking at the statement before VAT

To help answer your query what was your previous daily standing and what is your current daily charge?

By the way the latest accounts (i.e. y/e 2019) for Bulb shows their loss was £128 million, the figure of £26 million give or take a couple of millions was for y/e 2018.

13.31p per unit on February Statement
19.47 p per day on February Statement
Looking on my tariff page it now says the new charge is
13.98p per unit
20.44p per day As far as I know, I haven’t received anything to say it will change?

Anyone else noticed this?


Thanks for providing the information.

If you look at the two sets of figures one set is 5% more than the other which is the VAT element.

The tariff shows VAT added, the statement shows prior to adding the VAT.

Bulb have not increased their prices, I would suggest you have a recheck of your tariff and statements “fingers crossed” notice that one set of figures is prior to adding VAT at 5%?


The 2nd prices you mention are plus VAT. The website prices include VAT so you’ll know what the true cost is.
