Economy Energy
« on: 10 January 2019, 17:32:34 »

Anyone who is a customer of this company be aware that they have ceased trading if you didn't already know.  ::)

I'm not really surprised as just before Christmas I had my latest bills which had been calculated using estimated meter readings which were wildly inaccurate and gave me a debit balance approximately 10x what it should have been.  >:(  I wonder how many people they did this to and who paid up?  ???  ::)

I couldn't get through on the phone and they didn't reply to my email and I'm kicking myself now that I didn't cancel my direct debit! ::)

Anyway the lights are still on and the boiler is still chuntering away in the background!  :y

I'm with Octopus who took over from another energy company that went tits up.

So far I'd say they are the best energy company I've used.

I'm thinking of switching from British Gas and EON - Octopus Energy has good reviews on USwitch and a 5 star rating.
But there is always that niggling doubt when you hear of these less known companies going bust....

Ovo have been around for years. I don't know if you were tied in to a contract with Economy but, if the tariff you are put on is much more expensive than the one you were on, I would imagine you would be able to switch away without charge.

People get all het up over energy bills, but the difference between all the fixed term deals is not that great. Chill out and worry about something worth worrying about. Martin Lewis wets his pants over a 100 saving, but it's only 2 a week.

So the step daughter who bought a 6yr old Meriva for more reliability over the 20yr old stuff she used to run[and which then promptly broke]signed up to Economy Energy the day before they went bust :-X :-X I haven't a clue what happened to her as regards another supplier.
