Gas and Electricity bills for this year

Post by scorpiolady » 4 years ago

Hi all,
Has anyone found that their gas bill has doubled this year?, i know we rent through Haven and this is an expensive way, but had all the bills added for this year and was shocked at how much the gas bill was :frown:
Has anyone seen if their gas bill has doubled this year, i know that gas has gone up, but didn't think it has doubled that much, we phoned the office to tell them to re read the meter as we have had problems in the past with them not reading the meter properly and charging silly money for the gas bill, i could see if we have had bad weather this year and normally i could see the electric being higher with all the gadgets that people now have on charge..lol,

My charges on Presthaven are what I expected, in fact my gas bill is lower than I had calculated. :big_grin:

I use the 'Energy Cost Calculator' spreadsheet from our 'Members Resources' section. You may find it useful to monitor your Gas & Electricity use throughout the season and avoid a shock at the end of the season.

Really easy to use :big_grin: All you need to do is put in the prices charged on your last bill and then enter your meter readings. :thumbup:

I have 2 vans on PBR 1 van was £90 electric last year and £214 this year the other was £110 and this year £346!!!! i certainly dont think it has increased this much? Gas however is reduced by £80 WOW doesnt make up for the electric!!!

Our gas usage was about the same as last year, but our electricity bill came through for £598!!!! Queried this with Haven ... waited a week & still no response so chased again only to be told it must be a fault with our meter despite having them re-read the meter and agree the opening and closing balance with us which was 4000 units less than that on the bill. I know it was probably a human keying error, but we had dreadful attitude from the supposed owners customer service staff on site with no apology for the error. Since had an amended bill for £96! Makes me wonder though how many other bills are wrong yet still paid as the overcharge is not so glaringly obvious.

Sad maybe but I read our meters EVERY time we leave the van - We don't let. I had to "correct" them a couple of times in the early years AND we've quickly identified two problems in the past and had meters replaced. Also questioned a couple of times units used over winter when we weren't there! One was a dodgy meter, the other was the frost saver on the heating system I was unaware of!! :frown:

The other meter problem was a (minor) gas leak!

This year as usual their numbers and mine match. :smile:
